About Us

Halstead's club began in 1985 when a lady from Stowupland witnessed Halstead teaching at the Stowmarket karate club and asked the association if Stowupland could have its own club.

The association invited Halstead to become the instructor, who willingly agreed, and so the club was formed. The combination of Halstead's cheerful personality, enthusiasm, patience and no-nonsense approach made him a natural teacher and the perfect instructor and soon classes also begun in Felixstowe. Shögeki martial arts has produced many black belts and an England under 21 'A' team member. The club has also had several medallists at the English Championships.

Halstead himself has been training in karate since 1980, his first instructor being Dr Tony Donovan. He signed up to a beginner's course and took his first belt at the end of it achieving a second class pass. Halstead's instructors were Lenny Austin up to green belt and then Mick Blackwell and Lee Brade helped take him to 1st dan black belt in 1983. More…
