Children and adults are taught separately, our attention is spent on fulfilling what your needs are from Karate:
Studying an art form
Whether you are 6yrs or 60yrs there is something to gain from this Martial Art and Sport.
The academy has won thousands of medals from grass roots level to International level and has produced official British and all England champions in both Kata and Kumite disciplines in team and individual events.
Student/instructors have represented the official England Karate Team at Commonwealth, European and World Championships level. However, there are no pressures to compete as only a handful of students compete. The academy has also produced hundreds of Dan grades ( black belts ).
Children's Karate is based on Sport Karate, In the session’s children will learn new skills which will develop their co-ordination, balance, concentration and confidence.
They will meet new friends in a safe and secure environment and feel a true sense of achievement with progression through the belt grading system.
Our aim is to develop a positive attitude toward health and fitness, a respect for others and self esteem. Parents are able and encouraged to watch their child in a transparent teaching environment.
Adult Karate Classes
Adult Karate sessions are based on a mixture of Sport Karate, Fitness and Reality Based Karate. Sport Karate consists of Kumite (Sparring), working with a partner using Pads (Pad Work) and Kata (Solo Practice).
Reality Based Karate (Karate Jutsu) is the practical application of Karate in a self defence situation. All drills are practised safely and will teach you functional spontaneous self defence.
Here is a video of some of the more advance techniques we do in the adult session (basic technique taster coming soon)
