Letchworth Karate ESKA – Fountain Tigers

A family friendly, martial arts club formed in 2019. The instructors are fully qualified, DBS checked, hold valid first aid certificates and have full public indemnity insurance. We encourage both juniors and adults to train at the same time to allow families to exercise at the venue together.

The style of karate we practise is Shotokan and our club is affiliated to the English Shotokan Karate Association (ESKA) which is led by Chief Instructor Hanshi Michael Nursey (9th Dan).

Sensei Graham Fountain began training in 2014 with his eldest son at the Stevenage Dojo (Honbu Dojo – Head training facility) under the instruction of Hanshi Michael Nursey, 9th Dan (ESKA Chief Instructor).

Awarded black belt by Sensei Nursey in 2018 and qualified as an Instructor under the ESKA Coaching Foundation (led by Sensei Stones, 5th Dan) he went on to teach at both Stevenage and Knebworth clubs.

Over the years other members of his family (wife, four children and two nieces) have joined his karate journey. Having competed in many ESKA tournaments he has achieved 1st place in Kata, 2017 and 2018.

In 2019 he founded and instructs Letchworth Karate Club with assistance from fellow Karate-Ka and extends a warm welcome to you and your family
