Welcome

The Shotokan Karate Ryu was established in 2003 and since then it has been our mission to teach the art of Traditional Karate in Bishops Stortford and Stansted.

Chief Instructor Sensei Michael Ring (5th Dan), is a Senior English Karate-ka recognised in 2010 for his expertise in, and outstanding contribution to, the art of Karate-do. He is also a senior policy advisor in Government.

Sensei Donna Ring (4th Dan), the Chief Instructor of Juniors, is a former Expert Witness with the Forensic Science Service and responsible for developing the revolutionary Tiger Tots programme for teaching Karate to 4-6 year olds.

Today, we are the largest Karate School in the area with over 30 Black belts and over 200 licensed students.
