Of course! Please click here to arrange a FREE TRIAL CLASS!
Normally we train in a “gi” (a special training outfit), but for your first lessons we would advise that you turn up wearing some comfortable loose fitting clothing, and be prepared to train in bare feet.
Certainly not! We have students in the club of all ages, and karate offers many challenges which appeal to mature students.
Normally we take junior students starting at age 6.
Yes, lots of parents train with their children at our Sunday morning class.
You are more than welcome to come along to train.
Karate will certainly help you get fit. It will improve your flexibility and will provide you with mini goals for your next level of training. As you get better at karate you will train harder and your fitness will improve too.
Karate contains many elements of self defence, and will improve your self confidence. We do practice various drills aimed at defending yourself.
It is in some clubs, but we practice in controlled situations and only light contact is used. We want you to enjoy your training and come again, and that’s certainly not likely if you go home covered in bruises every time you train.
You shouldn’t get hurt, your Sensei will only put you in situations that you are comfortable with and in a controlled environment.
Twice a week is ideal but Initially once a week is sufficient
