I can't vouch for them personaly but i know there's a seiki juku club based in twickenham , they're a kyukushin offshoot from what i can tell and the practitioners i've spoken to sound like they do all the right things.
I have too much respect for my instructor to pull him into this so others can try and drag him down, what I will say is that I am happy with his classes and always leave with a big smile, regardless of how hard I've been thrown about.

I am the wild-eyed libertarian gun nut. I live in a compound, I don't shave, I don't have fringe on my flag and I DON'T SAY NICE THINGS ABOUT GUN CONTROL. Or the Bilderbergers.
Hi Pirate Tom

Or from the JKA site:
If you are interested in carrying on with Karate you may find that clubs of either of these organisations offer higher standard Karate than GKR. (Not difficult)
Please note I have no first hand experience of any of these clubs but to my knowledge (limited) of Karate is that the standard is not too bad.
As suggested by others go along, view some classes most clubs will offer a free first class and see the difference.
I'm a KUGB member and the standard of instruction has generally been very good in my experience.
What style of Aikijujutsu is it? Is it Daito Ryu? (which is what Ueshiba did)

The school was originally called an Aikido school (over 20 years ago) but as far as I can tell was far more Jujutsu than Aikido and has changed over the decades as our instructor has improved his knowledge of other arts and re-evaluated what he teaches. The school is totally independent of any governing body to avoid the politics and BS that seems to exist in almost every MA (as far as I can tell). It's also a full contact school which is what is just one of the reasons I love it.
