Looking to get in to martial arts... Let this small family friendly club take you on a journey which is will have a real positive impact on your life

Welcome to Marazion MayoShinDo Karate club. We are located at the hall at Marazion School, which is on School Lane just off the main road through the village. We offer weekly karate classes in Cornwall and is in a superb location within a short commute from the surrounding town of Penzance and other nearby villages. We focus mainly on karate and self defence but also practice Ju-Judo. Students can gain valuable knowledge of our style and improve technique, fitness, confidence, and discipline among others. We are a friendly club and like all other MayoShinDo clubs it is run in a non-intimidating way. We welcome all newcomers regardless of sex, ability or age.

The club was started in 2002 by Clint Hosking, with training taking place at All Saints Church Hall. After about 12 months the club moved to its current venue at Marazion School. Clint left the club in 2011 due to work commitments and Denzil Searle took over the running. Denzil started training at the University of Warwick in 1988. He came back in 2001 after a long gap to train with Clive Double (now 7th Dan) in Sennen and is currently a 4th Dan Black Belt. Denzil is a design engineer by profession and is also an archery coach.

Learn the importance of self-defence, self-discipline, self-protection and social engagement.


Our venue is located in the hall next door to Marazion junior school. It has a spacious main hall with a good floor which has underfloor heating which is a great option to have during the winter months. It is well lit and has lots of storage space. There is a waiting area in the foyer where parents can sit and wait for their children.



The hall has ample parking facilities directly outside the venue which is free to park. Inside there are male and female toilets and a waiting area.

Our Instructors

At Marazion Karate Club all our instructors are fully qualified and DBS checked. We always encourage our students to better themselves, encourage each other and set an example inside and outside of the dojo. Higher graded junior students who always have an exemplary attitude and train to a high level are often given the opportunity to help out with the beginners, teaching them the basics and helping out where necessary. This gives them a sense of responsibility and helps build their confidence whilst giving them the recognition they deserve.
