Hi, my name is Sensei Chris Brown and I’m a 4th Dan black belt in Karate. I also hold black belts in Kobudo martial arts (traditional weapons) and I’ve been teaching martial arts for over 15 years.
Karate is my passion and I am very proud to be a part of the UKSKO (United Kingdom Seiki-Juku Association). What started as a hobby has developed into a way of life and what we do helps people develop confidence, discipline, co-ordination and focus in themselves, their Karate and daily life.
I train under Sensei Frank Perry, 8th Dan Hanshi, who is not only a formidable martial artist but also a
great instructor and mentor. Unlike some martial arts that just focus on basics and kata, we are a contact club and although basics and kata play a big role in what we do, self-defence and fighting is at the heart of Seiki-Juku.
Seiki-Juku comes from a very traditional Okinawan background and is based on the three K’s of
Kihon – Basics
Kata – Forms
Kumite – Fighting
Seiki-Juku means ‘True Spirit’. The word Karate itself means ‘empty hand’, one incapable of
grasping or holding onto pride, prejudice or any other selfish desire. The empty hand is to be offered
to others in the service of life itself.
Yours in Karate-Do,
Sensei Chris Brown
