The St Georges Karate Club’s is the 3rd club club to come on stream from the Sheppey Karate Clubs Group. The club opened on the 8th May 2014 has on average over 20 members and bases itself as an after-school-activity for the children of the St Georges Primary School, Chequers Road, Minster–on-Sea, Sheerness Kent ME12 3QU. The clubs chief instructor is Arthur Wallace 7th Dan a very experienced instructor. Sensei Wallace was responsible for introducing karate to Sheppey and opened his first Dojo in May 1974. He was awarded his 7th Dan in 2014 and by the KSKC under the auspices of the English Karate Governing Board. He is also a 1st Dan black belt in Judo (AJA), and adept with Kobudo (weaponry) I.e. Sai (short swords) and Rokushu-bo (6 ft staff).

Its four sister clubs are the St Clements, Rose Street, Thistle Hill and Sheppey Karate Club (Head Dojo) in Sheerness.

The club has produced over 136 black belt students, some of which are now 5th Dan Instructors. Sensei is assisted by his wife Frances 5th Dan, Stephanie Cornford 3rd Dan and several other black belt assistant instructors, all of whom are registered with the Kent Shotokan Karate Clubs. The Sheppey clubs primary objective is to produce good quality Black Belts, by balancing the training needs of the student by using both traditional and modern methods of teaching.
