McKinstry Family Karate is an independent Family run Family-friendly Martial Arts school has been established in 2009, since 2013 we have operating from our own dedicated well-equipped premises in Burscough near Ormskirk in West Lancashire.

We are a Karate School thats not just about Kicking, Punching and Self-Defence but also about personal development and building confidence.

We are proud to be on the vanguard in safe guarding and are the very first club in our area to be awarded the prestigious Safe Guarding Code in Martial Arts Mark. There are years of experience amongst our professional and friendly instructors and we have numerous classes over three evenings per week and weekends to suit all ages and abilities.​

It doesn't matter in whichever level of Martial Arts training you, or your family participate in. It's a fact that our experienced, professional and friendly service focuses on assisting every student, new or not-so-new in achieving their own personal goals in our Martial Arts lessons.

Physical activity, especially Martial Arts training greatly reduces stress, improves overall emotional wellbeing, boosts your immune system improves self-confidence and clarifies mental focus. So this helps you whether that is in education, or a profession in fact every walk in life.

At McKinstry Family Karate you will be learning self-defence along with other great skills and as each week of training passes you’ll get fitter, stronger, leaner more flexible and gain the energy you thought you never had.

You can begin your Martial Arts journey by enrolling in one of our courses.
It's easier than you think and we include some incredible special introductory
bonuses to help get you started. Spaces are often limited due to their popularity so
it's often wise to act fast just in case.

We teach the dynamic exciting and effective Korean style of martial arts known as Soo Bahk Do a style of Karate heavily influenced by indigenous Korean and also Chinese martial arts. Our school is great for Kids, Families and Adults to train and learn great new skills with like-minded people in a friendly safe environment free from intimidation (though not free from hard work)!​
