Welcome to Luton Higashi Karate Kai

About Us

Based in Luton, we have been established for 25 years and the standards set at the club are of the highest level. Luton Higashi is ranked among the top clubs in the UK and Sensei John Hurley is the highest graded Higashi instructor in Herts, Beds and Bucks.

New for 2020

Despite Covid, the club has been lucky enough to welcome many new members this year. This has led to us moving to a much larger sports hall.


Due to Covid, we have to maintain Karate England's Covid standards to ensure we can contimue to operate safely.

We therefore ask students to bear with us by reading our covid document (found in the COvid section of the website) and bearing with these changes:

- We will not be able to accept payment on the door. Please ensure lessons are paid for in advance

- The lesson will start at 2pm promptly. If anyone arrives after this, an instructor will unfortunately not be available to let the student in as we will be teaching

- We need to carry out temperature checks on the door

- Please let us know by midday on Sunday by Whatsapp if you are training or not. We need to keep a register of who will be training as part of government policy on track and trace and are unable to do this on the door

- Please maintain social distancing outside

In order to maintain social distancing in lessons, we are refraining from any contact:

- There is no partner work or sparring

- There is no use of equipment such as focus mits or striking pads

Karate for Kids 4-7 years old


Power Dragons is a specially designed Martial Arts course aimed at children aged 4-7 years old (nursery, reception, years 1&2). The students will learn important self defense skills and also the life skills that are imparted as part of their training.


As they learn these various character and life skills such as respect, confidence and self control, they are rewarded with stickers of parts of Dave the Dragon until they have completed the course and become Power Dragons themselves!


Naturally, Power Dragons also provides the children with excellent exercise which will help them build their strength and co-ordination in a fun atmosphere. More information
