Martial Arts Camps

We run 3 karate camps each year one in Jan/Feb (Kangeiko) one in April/May and one in November (Gasshuku).

Here is the information for the winter Karate training camp, traditionally called: Kangeiko – the famous Winter training camp held in Japan each year. This year experience it on your door step within the majestic surroundings of the Lake District National Park.

Over 3 days you will experience winter training with Matt Price Sensei 7th Dan (JKS England Karate Team coach) and Ben Richardson 5th Dan (Assistant Team coach). We will be covering all aspects of Karate-Do based on the traditions within the JKS.

Training will take place on Friday evening (7pm-8pm), Saturday morning (two classes) and Sunday morning each day.

Our venue is found in the hamlet of Dubwath, at the western end of Bassenthwaite Lake near Keswick. Ouse Bridge House over looks both the lake, and the wainwright mountain range including Skiddaw, Ulloch Pike, Carlside, Dodd and Binsey to name a few. We offer beautiful accommodation within a Lakeland Victorian home and a variety of wonderful breakfasts from a traditional cooked cumberland, to vegan and continental, all included in the price of your stay.

Our village pub is a short 1/4 mile walk where hot food is served daily, and the “Orient express train station” cafe is just over the road serving a variety fo home cooked food and drinks too. The famous Lakes Distillery is behind Ouse Bridge a 1/4 mile over the field, and offers fine dining along with a distillery tour and shopping. There is easy access to both Keswick and Cockermouth and of course you can walk out the door straight on to the fells.

We are offering 10 double bedrooms, 2 of which can split in to twin rooms, and 2 can split in to 3 beds.

After training each morning we will be offering free guided walks, the opportunity to head off on your own adventure on the fells, or perhaps you’d prefer to visit the Lakes Distillery or venture in to Keswick, Grasmere or Cockermouth for some shopping or lakeland activities.

Grab one of the 10 available rooms, which includes your lovely home cooked breakfast at our award winning guest house before they are gone!
