We're very proud to announce that E.S.K.K Martial Arts & Fitness has recently won a prestigious business management award from NEST, which was announced at their client conference and awards ceremony in Nottingham on 23rd May.
We are very happy to have been recognised for the way in which we manage our school through the NEST systems and especially in the sector of martial arts. Although we were foundered back in 2004, our dojo has only been open to the public for membership since 2012, so it fills us with confidence that we're swiftly moving in the right direction.
We'd like to express our gratitude to NEST for their support and encouragement along the way, and of course, to all our members for helping us become what we are today. That said, we're not the type of people to sit on our laurels, so let's treat this as only an initial step of an ongoing and exciting journey together!

Congratulations to everyone who attended our grading yesterday evening in Cleator!
We had our initial intake at our new Gosforth dojo take their first grading challenge and it was very commendable to see them all try their best in what must have been a daunting environment. Hopefully they will have gained some confidence from the experience and also got to meet a few of our long-term members, prefects, assistants and instructors. We'd like to welcome you all to our karate family!
Also notable was a fantastic performance from two of our intermediate students, Ben Pearce and MIlle Ashford. Their attitude and focus was a great example for what a model karate grading should look like and we were all proud to see them achieve what were two very well-deserved awards.
Onwards and upwards :-)
