Hadashi Senshi Do Karate
Welcome to Hadashi Senshi Do Karate. We are a professional karate academy with program of classes to suit all ages and abilities. Based in Lancaster, the academy offers classes across the district in various locations, covering the south and north areas of the city and beyond.Karate appeals to everyone regardless of age, gender or ability. As well as providing a safe and healthy means of learning how to protect oneself, regular training also improves fitness, flexibility, agility, confidence and self-awareness. Karate is a system that combines kicking, punching, striking, blocking, sweeps and throws and as such, is universally recognised as one of the most comprehensive of all traditional martial arts, nurturing the development of mind, body and spirit. It can be practice alone or in groups, which makes it especially appealing in recent times when restrictions placed on social distancing to combat the pandemic meant we were forced to adapt our approach to training.

“He has had a wonderful time and received the very best training available.”
“This club supports it’s members like a family but is completly professional.”
“What stands out foremost is the teacher’s commitment to training and teaching.”
I am writing this review as a parent and as a member. I took my son to karate initially to hope he would gain some important life skills, discipline & fitness with no doubt that he would enjoy it. Not only does he absolutely love it, he loves his teacher, his fellow members and the actual essence of karate which he has begin to grasp a basic understanding of. He is safe and looked after but also disciplined and guided in this excellently run club. I am so relieved we have found this for him as Karate can be a part of who he is for his life now, predominantly thanks to his teacher. I am not a teacher but I am in awe of how a karate teacher, like Andrea, can not only teach children and adults of all ages (my son is 5) but continue on her own journey and learning too, it truly is inspiring. Her love for Martial Arts is apparent as is her passion for the club and teaching, hard work is an understatement. I took up training too and love the fact this is something I can do with my son and hopefully my daughter too when she is old enough. It makes me feel more confident, stronger and much fitter and also relives day to day stresses – a miracle in itself! The social side of the club is absolutely lovely, they go all out with thought and time and give the children party’s and get togethers which is invaluable in creating a really strong team spirit! I cannot recommend this club enough, as a parent of a child or as taking it up yourself. You only have to come along and enjoy it for yourself to see the benefits of being part of such a special club. Congratulations to all those closely involved in making this club a wonderful success and may it long continue.
At first I took my daughter to karate to give her an opportunity to learn important life skills, discipline and a Martial Art, it was just a “let’s try” more then “let’s DO it”.
After 3 years, we do not regret one single minute. She loves it and I love it too. I know she is safe, having a good time and with a teacher that I have no words to describe. Andrea is a wonderful person and her personality reflects in everything she does. She is lovely with the kids, knowing the right dose of fun and discipline, also she is a true professional.
So if you did not decide yet….stop thinking and go to enrol immediately 🙂
My son has been training for just over a year. He has had a wonderful time and received the very best training available. His training program has been tailored to his needs and he has
obtained the necessary individual guidance to make rapid progress. Hadashi Martial Arts offers a well structure environment where the children involved can enjoy themselves whilst they learn. I strongly recommend this dojo.
Kaizen is a truly singular place for the study of martial arts. On the one hand it offers a carefully structured and technical approach to the learning and training of martial arts, taught in a safe, friendly and inclusive environment. On the other — and perhaps even more uniquely — it is home to a community whose members participate in the regional, national and international stages of the world’s toughest combat sports. This constant experimental contact with reality exposes us to ever shifting circumstances which requires a fluid and continually evolving redefinition of the task at hand. Traditional, student-sensei martial arts instruction is not enough. No single voice could hope to tackle such a task alone. Therefore, Kaizen’s members all participate in this process of learning and teaching together: The community is the curriculum. Kaizen is a hive-mind, come and join the battles!

“Coaches are real talents and really put their money where their mouth is.”
“The staff are very knowledgeable, friendly and approachable.”
Amazing gym. Lovely atmosphere, great people, my fitness improved 10 fold without me noticing. Adam is a really amazing teacher. Helped me to get my kicks right in about 10 minutes. Open until late. Great place.
Can’t recommend this place enough. Great tutors who listen. Very welcoming. Huge mat space and weights room! All round friendly environment and a great place for children also.
What an amazing place, both of our boys love Kaizen academy, they have both found their own different classes. All the instructors are supportive and encouraging, perfect for developing confidence, while learning new skills. A perfect, friendly place would definitely recommend Kaizen.

“Great instructors and good facilities”
“Relaxed and fun atmosphere.”
I was training here for eight months before I relocated and my only regret was that I didn’t come here sooner. Fun classes (which will often push you to your limits), friendly classmates, passionate teachers who give you clear and constructive criticism when needed and there is a wide variation of classes to choose from. Whether you are experienced or a beginner this is the place to further develop your skills in martial arts.
Excellent place to learn many martial arts at any level. Also great workouts. Relaxed and fun atmosphere. Great trainers.
Great instructors and good facilities

“We have met fantastic people and learned new skills.”
“Great place to learn A traditional Korean martial art.”
“All children treated fairly and with respect.”
Our eldest son attended this school for over 3 years. Initially he was very shy and lacked self confidence. After a matter of weeks of martial arts training with John Ward, there was a very noticeable change. He became very keen to learn more and his confidence grew immensely.
The class is informative and students are encouraged to do well. The gradings happen for different belts only when John Ward thinks you’ll do well. He is 100% behind his students and he also does demonstration days, open to the parents of students, and public. I encourage everyone to take a look. You will receive a very warm welcome. You may even meet the grandmaster as our son did. Pop along and take a look. Can’t recommend enough.
Our son would be definitely still attending if he hadn’t gone to university
Laura Lupton (GarnetCakeAcademy)
I am a former student and would like to post a review to reflect what a wonderful experience my 5 year training was.
When you join you become part of a family, it is within this family that you are challenged and pushed further than you thought you could ever go.
The area is so lucky to have a Master with such depth of knowledge and experience, a real privilege to train under.
If you want to get fit, keep your brain active and make friends while you learn under EXPERT supervision….you have found the right school!
My daughter has been attending the classes for the past 2-3 years and has progressed nicely. I love the fact that they encourage everyone to take part in competitions regardless to the belt colour or abilities. And I love flexibility so if you can’t make it to your lesson you can go on an alternative days but because of that sometimes there are quite a few students turning up in one day which makes teaching/practising a bit difficult. I would recommend them to anyone who is looking for a teacher that encourages and is patient with your child.
Satori-do Shotokan Karate
Address: Holy Cross Orthodox Church, Braddon Cl, Morecambe LA4 4UZ, United Kingdom
“Fantastic approachable instructors Fun and fair club Win win all round :)”
“Fabulous karate school, both the Tigers and the main group.”
“Spacious dojo at Holly Cross is an ideal place to get your skills polished.”
Both of my children have been going to Satori-do for a few months now and both love every minute. They are currently trying to collect their stars for each skill which i think is a great idea as it pushes them to try harder. Also love the incentive of getting to wear black belt if you are best in class and of course the trophy for trainer of the month.
All in all really happy with the club and my kids never seem to get bored like they can do at other clubs. Oh, and not to fotget the instructors are great as well.
Paul McDonough (Microwaved Coffee)er this year and was really taken aback by how professional, but also by how welcoming the club has been. The instructors have been encouraging and supportive throughout and I’ve found that my own confidence and fitness has improved massively after a few months!
Highly recommend for beginners, experienced practitioners and any skill level of any age.
The kids love going to the sessions and better still, I enjoyed the parent and child session too!
It’s obviously well run as the kids both love going and come back telling us what they have learnt. They love to show us too and we can clearly see their improvement and techniques improving week by week. (As if I’d know a kick from a punch!!)
