After a major illness and the desire to get fitter I joined Rising Sun. Right from the start Jamie was supportive and kind, he has the special ability of knowing exactly how far he can push you to make improvements in your technique and fitness, but manages to keep things fun at the same time. I’m so pleased that I plucked up the courage to make that initial phone call, a year on I’ve done two belts, lost weight, my body works better, I’ve made some wonderful friends and I am happy. I put this all down to coming here. This is a wonderful club, you really should come along and give it a try.

My 2 boys have been part of this karate club for nearly 3 years now.
I’m very impressed with Jamie who we are fortunate to have as a Sensei. He is an excellent teacher -firm yet fun . He has truly helped them to reach their full potential.
Kids love it- enough said.

I’ve been a member of The Rising Sun Karate Academy now for just over a year along with my daughter and son. It is family friendly and has great comradery, we’ve made loads of friends along the way. Our Sensei Jamie Sims is inspiring and makes you strive to do your best. I would recommend anyone wanting to start out as a white belt or someone who wants to get back into martial arts to join our club, you won’t be disappointed.
