Fairview Junior School, Drewery Drive, Rainham, Kent ME8 0NU

Fairview Karate Club opened on 3rd November 2004 and until July 2013 was run by Sensei Kaye Williams. Sensei Mel Kirk has now taken over the club which is open on a Wednesday evening and has 15 -20 students in each lesson ranging from 5 – 18, separated by age and ability. Fairview is a small, friendly club with excellent support from students and parents. We are very fortunate to have the support of three adult assistant instructors and also four junior black belts who support the younger pupils in the first lesson and ensure that one to one support is available if required, epecially for our very young karateka.
