The Karate we teach develops concentration, speed, power, strength, accuracy, balance and coordination. We aim to improve members self-discipline, self-control, self-confidence, patience, humility, respect and perseverance. At the same time karate is an excellent way to stay fit. Practicing karate works every single muscle in your body.
Our initial approach is Sport Karate (World Karate Federation rules). Anyone who has competed before or is looking into improving their preparation for their next competition or even complete beginners you are all welcome to train with us. You don't necessarily have to be a member or leave your old club. It is more about Champions sharing ideas to improve themselves.
For those not keen to compete in sport karate, we also practice traditional self defence karate. In traditional karate, members will follow a grading syllabus. The syllabus comprises well structured basic moves, kata (forms) and self defence techniques. Members can be tested under an independent external panel of experienced instructors every 3 months. We practice Shotokan karate but mixed with some Goju-ryu and Wado.
Whatever your level of fitness, your age or experience you are able to work at your own pace in a friendly but dedicated environment. We believe that Karate can give you everything we have mentioned above and more.
We have adapted our training due to the changes with Covid-19 to be inline with the rules.
