Rush Green Ishinryu Karate

BIK Logo

Rush Green Ishinryu was founded on the principle that Karate is for everyone.  We train students from 6 years old upwards and we have no upper age limit.  Our weekly Family class is designed to accommodate students of all ages.

Ishinryu Karate was founded in 1973 in Dagenham by our founder Ticky Donovan OBE, and Rush Green is the newest member of the British Ishinryu family of clubs.  We have very close ties with the oldest club in Ishinryu (Woodlane) which was founded in 1973 and continues to thrive in the Romford area.

Ishinryu run a number of clubs in East London and Essex, and British Ishinryu Karate is part of a worldwide family with clubs across Australia, Canada, New Zealand and the United States.  Over the years Ishinryu has produced British, European and World champions – but our emphasis remains very much on traditional karate, with basic training, and the correct understanding and application of technique, being our true foundation.
