Welcome to your Karate in Manchester.
We are offering training across the city, with our two main hubs being the Central Hall close to Piccadilly Gardens and the Angel Centre in Salford, close to Spinningfields.
Our training follows the Missing Link cycle concept that makes it possible to attend the regular Omote classes, no matter of your graduation level. On top of that, you find Okuden classes featuring advanced and specialised topics.
To make training as flexible and practical for you as possible, the schedule offers a mix of indoor and online classes throughout the week. Individual lessons are available as well.

Manchester Karate is the first Missing Link Dojo in the UK, started by Founder Circle Member Heero Miketta, a German Martial Arts teacher who moved to the UK in 2010 after living in Finland, Estonia and China before. He has been practicing martial arts for over 35 years. Besides founding numerous different Dojos, he also worked for the German police, co-developed concepts for self-defence and violence prevention and initiated the German ShoShin Projekt, a network of martial arts teachers from different backgrounds that aims to research and teach without limitations, based on exchange and cross-training between styles and methods from all around the world.
Today, a team of highly skilled and experienced instructors around Senseis Tony Bolton, Arto Laaksonen and Carl Taylor teaches in Manchester, bringing decades of experience in many different martial arts to the table.
