Dave & Jacky Bolsover are a husband & wife team qualified as 5th Dan senior instructors to teach karate. Their passion for the art is total and they are are dedicated to the students training at the clubs, taking great pride and pleasure in seeing everyone progress and reach their goals.
Makenki Karate began with Dave & Jackie opening the first club in September 2003. Since then Makenki has developed & grown into a respected karate organisation that has maintained its morals and personal connections with all of our members, and built up strong relationships with many outside links and organisations.
In addition to that, each club has a host of male & female black belt assistant instructors.
To keep the high standards of karate, as well as teaching, all
instructors regularly do their own personal
physical training and regularly meet to ensure our teaching standards are kept at the highest level.
On top of all that, all instructors have to meet & maintain certain criteria before they can be qualified to teach.

*Must be minimum black belt level & be approved and certified with instructor status
