Missing Link Martial Arts
Karate in East Kilbride

Discover martial arts now. 

There is no greater source of health and fitness than the ancient fighting arts. Born in conflict, deeply rooted in Asian philosophy, focused on a holistic lifestyle, they answer many questions of modern life. And they are also quite good if you want to learn how to pack a punch. Martial arts can make you feel better and be safer on many levels.

Do you want to be part of the journey?

Missing Link is a research community offering a unique concept of learning and teaching martial arts. Based on Japanese Karate, we connect its Chinese Roots and focus strongly on Modern Application. You are welcome, no matter what's your martial arts background, and you can always stay in your original association/style/art if you like.
