Some of the benefits of doing karate are:
- Increase in self-confidence

- Tone up
- learning to work with others

- Self Defence
Within our structured lessons, we teach all the elements of karate including; strikes, blocks, kicks, Kumite (sparring), stances, movement and kata. We focus on these elements equally, each part is as important as the next, and they all build together to create the full picture of karate. You can use our website to keep up to date with our latest news, find your local class, and check out our upcoming events. We also have an online shop where you can purchase all your karate essentials. If you need to get in touch please contact us.
We are an equal opportunities club and strive to accommodate everybody. Our instructors are DBS cleared (previously known as CRB), fully insured, first aid trained and have up to date child protection and safeguarding certificates.
