Kaishi Karate School has been established in Edgware and associated areas for eleven years. Formerly Sensei Sheena taught under the name of White Crane Karate School. However, having completed her training to attain third dan black belt level, now has a school of her own naming.
Kaishi has different meanings dependent upon the kanji lettering used. Two of these meanings are how Sensei Sheena thinks of her school. Firstly, kaishi means beginning or start. Secondly it also means ‘thinking of others by way of using our heart’. Sensei Sheena’s aim is to enable all students to benefit from learning karate in a well-rounded way; physically and emotionally.

We take Safe Guarding very seriously
Sport England has awarded Kaishi Karate School the safeguarding kitemark, for meeting safe guarding standards. Something that is not a requirement for Martial Art Schools but something that we feel is important to subscribe to and adhere to.
