Established in 1973 by our founder Sensei Tommy Kwan 8th Dan.
Why choose the Rising Sun Karate Association?
At R.S.K.A. you are not automatically an instructor when you achieve your black belt. Each R.S.K.A. instructor has had to pass exams and demonstrate they can instruct before being awarded their Instructor's certificate. Likewise, to become a R.S.K.A. black belt, you have to reach a minimum standard and our standard is high.
RSKA Club locations:
Radcliffe, Oldham and Swinton.
I have practiced Karate for over 35 years and in that time have seen many changes both good and bad on the national and international scene. Rising Sun Karate Association is one of few things that has stayed consistent throughout those times, mainly due to the superb leadership of Sensei Tommy Kwan. The list of names that have progressed through his ranks are too many to mention. A list of which I am proud to say I am part of.
Sensei Mike Fraser (7th Dan)
I am very proud of all my achievements within Rising Sun and I also know that none would have been possible without the many friends I have trained with over the years.
Sensei Thomas Briscall (5th Dan)
Some of the things I enjoy about the Association is the variety in the syllabus, the quality and breadth of experienced instructors, the friendly and welcoming Dojos and the support for all students of all abilities, ages and backgrounds.
