Elite Karate Centres provide expert Karate coaching for over 300 members across the city of Sheffield.

Elite Karate Centres is part of the

Koshinkan Karate Association


Elite Karate Centres (EKC) was founded in 2000 by professional Karate instructor Steve Hegarty, teaching the Shukokai style of Karate.

Operating from several locations within the Sheffield area, our primary aim is to ensure that each member enjoys their practice of karate-do, and in doing so we are also here to support our members in their progression within the karate syllabus, at a pace that suits them.

We teach over 300 students from the age of six, with no age limit – just like the Okinawans.
