Welcome to Legends Karate!

We are the first UK accredited club, teaching Hanshi Patrick McCarthy’s ground breaking method of old-school karate: Koryu Uchinadi Kenpo-jutsu (KU). We are based at the marvellous London Fields Fitness Studio in Hackney, E8, conveniently located at just 7 minuted from London Liverpool Street station. We teach children’s karate classes on weekdays after school and on Saturdays and hold regular adults practice sessions in Koryu Uchinadi and Yamane Ryu Kobudo (bojutsu). We are a friendly, dedicated club with beginner classes throughout the year, and welcome students and/or instructors from traditional or modern karate styles that want to find out more about the functional application of kata, as it was catalogued and categorized by master-level instructor Hanshi Patrick McCarthy (9th Dan).
