The club is run solely for the benefit of the members and whilst the instruction is provided in a professional manner no personal financial gain is made by any of the club instructors.

In addition to coaching and practising karate regularly at the club some of the instructors coach and practice karate both nationally and internationally.

The Instruction team is as follows:
