Tim Houghton

Tim is an engaging and inspiring Karate teacher with 27 years’ experience.

He is an official UK head instructor and representative, leading a branch of the Japanese Karate School ‘Reiwaryu Ryushinkan’ in England. Tim is graded to 5th Dan black belt and was awarded the title of Shihan (chief Instructor) in Tokyo Japan by the school’s master.

He has visited and trained in Japan on many occasions directly as a student of master Soke Ueno. He brings to the class a wealth of cultural understanding and enjoys passing on his knowledge to students of all ages and abilities, believing that Karate should be accessible and achievable for all. Many of Tim’s students have gone on to achieve black belt Dan ranks and now lead classes of their own.

As a qualified Psychotherapist Tim brings mindfulness and meditation to each class and is able to motivate and engage students. In particular, he has specialist skills in working with children to establish confidence and self esteem.
