Who we are
Toshi Karate Club is a Shito Ryu Karate Club based in North West of London –Edgware, Kingsbury, Luton, and Milton Keynes offering students quality tuition. We have classes every day in different locations for all ages (5 years old to adults).
We offer a pay-as-you-train scheme or monthly fee. Within every class, we have a Sensei and Senpai so we can split the class into small groups so they can teach certain abilities to ensure that you are learning karate which is specific to you, and maximize the attention given to each individual.
The objective of the Toshi Karate Club is to teach the highest quality traditional karate combined with the highest quality sport karate. Traditional karate allows you to progress through the grading belt, teaches about fundamentals and the spirit of karate, and feel the real karate.
Sport karate is where we take part in competitions, participating in Kata (Forms) and Kumite (Fighting). At our first participation at the official English Kyu Grade Championship 2016, we won all podiums (first, second and third place) at Kata -9yrs. Our Team Kata is European Shito Ryu Champion in 2018, and 2019 at under 12 years. We have also multiple Nationals Champions at EKF Kyu Grade Championships. Sport Karate it is a great adventure to take if you enjoy competing and it is also an Olympic Sport in Tokyo 2020.
Our Karate Club was established in 2014. Instruction is provided by the senior black belt. Sensei Cristian Maldarescu (4th Dan Shito Ryu) is the club Chief Instructor with over 30 years of teaching experience in Romania (Rm.Valcea) and England (London and Luton). All our instructors have DBS checked.
At Toshi Karate Club we are aiming to inspire people to take up karate to be fit and healthy, to increase self-discipline, determination, self-confidence, and team spirit, and most importantly to have FUN.
