Nisen Karate

This is a popular club for children (5 - 7 years) and ages 8+.

Sensei Quinn formed Ni-Sen at the start of the millenium and Ni-Sen means 2000. After 25 years training , teaching, competing internationally, and expanding his own knowledge of Karate Sensei Quinn decided it was time to share all his wealth of knowledge and form Ni-Sen Karate.

Sensei Quinn was the E.K.G.B. kata champion from 1992 until 1996 and had the honour to compete for England on many different occassions.

Some of the Karate instructors which Sensi Quinn has had the privilege to train under are: Sensei Ticky Donvan O.B.E, Sensei Kyoshi Patrick McCarthy, Sensei Dave Hazard.

Sensei Quinn's Philosophy when forming Ni-Sen Karate is:

"Ni-Sen will never be a "style" and was never intended to be; it encompasses everything of value to the contemporary student, without restricting itself to a single discipline."

Sensei Quinn is constantly learning and evolving as a karate student and teacher, he says:

"I am also constantly learning myself. As I find better ways of doing things they naturally start to filter into my teaching. So Ni-Sen is in a constant state of evolution, reflecting the needs of students in the modern world."

For more details please contact Steve Quinn on (01268) 546439 by email on  or visit the Ni-Sen website.

Hara Karate

Hara Karate was formed in 2000 and is based in Basildon, Essex and welcomes anyone who wishes to train to come along, irrespective of fitness or experience level.

New students will be monitored on fitness and stamina in the interests of continued well being and improvement, and should not feel that they cannot train on the grounds of fitness level - age or weight.

We would encourage our new students to make the Sensei (teacher) aware of any medical conditions or injuries/disabilities that they might suffer from to ensure that a safe level of training is maintained.

Martial Arts are all about improving the individual and not a direct competition to be better than your fellow students. Personal fitness and flexibility will be the reward of regular training whatever your age, weight or fitness level and can lead to a longer and more active life in later years.

Remember - rarely too early or late to begin a training routine - come along and give it a try.

This academy practices the style of karate called Hara (Inner spirit, strength, balance and energy)

Hara academy, although a relatively recent style of karate, still maintains traditional values such as discipline, respect etc.

The karate that you will practice has been influenced by several systems of martial arts; Shotokan, Wado Ryu, Goju Ryu, Tai Chi etc.

Hara Academy is a member of the Combined school of Martial Arts and in turn is licensed by the governing body for martial arts in this country, the British National Martial Arts Association (BNMAA).

Tuesdays 6pm - 7pm - Juniors/Cadets, Tuesdays 8pm - 9.30pm Adults/Cadets, For more information please visit their website.
