The newly-constructed Greenland Community Centre building replaces the old hall that served the club well for many years.

The building is the result of substantial investment from Larne Borough Council and has proved to be a first class facility.

Recently the club held gradings with all students achieving their respective grades, Adrian Cooke 1st Dan Black Belt, Martin O’Boyle and Christy O’Toole both achieving Yellow Belt.

Chief Instructor Sensei Karl Platton (3rd Dan) and Senior Instructors Frank Healy (3rd Dan), Peter McFaul (3rd Dan) and David McLean (3rd Dan) strive to provide a high standard of traditional Wado-Ryu Karate, bringing beginners through the ranks to Black Belt standard.

The club trains twice a week and welcomes anyone from 6 years and up who wishes to learn Karate, Self Defence and stay fit. Training nights are Monday nights 7-9pm and Wednesday 7-8pm.
