Sepoy Freestyle Karate was created in 1992 by its Chief Instructor and founder Gary Smith 7th Dan. Gary has studied in various martial arts including Aikido, Karate, Kick Boxing and Kung Fu and holds multiple black belts. Gary decided to create a style blending elements from all of these. Sepoy Freestyle Karate was a founding member of NAKMAS when it was formed. (National Association of Karate and Martial Arts Schools).
The style has gone onto flourish since then with clubs in Leicestershire, Peterborough, Lincolnshire and Bedfordshire. Gary is the deputy chair of Nakmas. Through his expansion of the style since 1992 his three 5th Dan instructors in the Leicestershire area run the style in Leicester.
We run classes from 18:30 hrs on Monday nights from our dojo in the West End Working Men's Club on Braunstone Avenue. We welcome experienced and novice martial artists from ages 5 upwards to come and train. The lessons are split between strength and conditioning work, syllabus and kata work, and sparring and weapons work.
We run classes from 18:45 hrs on Tuesday nights from our dojo in St Marys Church Hall Humberstone. We also welcome experienced martial artists and novice ones to come train with us. It can be an opportunity to get some "double " training in and unlike some clubs, if you train in one of our clubs one night, we won't charge you again to train in the other the next night. This can be really helpful for those wishing to get extra conditioning or syllabus work in. This extra training can be vital to get you to prepare to the required standards for grading day. We have other Sepoy Karate locations around the country.
