About Us

LLS Karate - In Short


LLS Karate was formed in 2001 and provides expert tuition across Leicestershire in the traditional martial art of Shotokan Karate. There are three clubs in the group – Barrow, Braunstone, and Twyford. Each instructor runs their own club, but we all meet regularly to train, chat, and share ideas. 

We're proud to say we're a family run business - it's just a rather big family - the Spence, Golland, and Statham families :-). Classes are big enough to add some atmosphere, but small enough to allow some focus on specific needs where necessary.

All instructors in the LLS Karate group are fully accredited with the Amateur Martial Association (AMA), including coaching qualification, instructor license, insurances, First Aid, and Child Protection. The AMA is one of the largest martial arts governing bodies in the UK and fully assess all accredited instructors. CRB/DBS information for all instructors is also available on request.
