Become part of a family of likeminded karatekas

During a time when kids are less and less active due to computer games and screen time any opportunity for physical activity is a good one. Karate has proven to be leaps, jumps and kicks above many other options, thanks to a winning blend of strength training, cardio and stretching. If you have ever observed a karate class you would see so much more than punching and kicking.

Martial arts is all about self-discipline, an increasingly valuable commodity for kids in today’s world of instant gratification. In life, you can’t always get what you want and self – restraint is an essential part of learning to deal with disappointment as well as overcoming obstacles and adversity. Karate fosters a unique sense of discipline that comes from within and carries over into all aspects of life. Karate is built upon a principle of respect for adults and each other. Kids who take up karate aren’t just learning cool moves; they are also learning how to honour authority.

Karate classes can help kids to find their true selves

Learning new skills increases children’s confidence and self-esteem. They’ll also need to work together with other students in the class and even perform their skills in front of people during grading or special events. Many kids struggle with the pressure of competing with other kids. But in martial arts, the focus is on self-improvement. There’s no “letting down the team.”

You might think that Martial Arts is about fighting but it’s quite the opposite in most cases. Many Martial Arts styles focus on self-defence and don’t allow fighting between students until they are older and have more advanced skills. The ultimate aim of Martial Arts is to teach children peaceful, non-violent conflict resolution skills and to help them work out ways to avoid physical altercations. Martial Arts has a lot to offer children. It gets them active and teaches them to be confident, peaceful and focused.

Frequently Asked Questions

You can find answers to some of the most frequently asked questions here, so feel free to send us a message if you do not find what you are looking for.
I'm new. What should I wear?

All Instructors and students wear the traditional all white uniform which is known as a Gi and the relevant coloured belt.

For new beginners that do not have a Gi (Karate Uniform), we suggest to wear comfortable clothing that allows you to move freely, so normal sports gear is suggested, but please refrain from wearing items which have obscenities or any other inappropriate words or slogans.

Should I wear shoes?

Not for participating in your Karate class, but please be sure to turn up and leave in a pair!
