As we get older we all realise that we reap what we sow; if you put in the effort you will get the reward and the rewards are immense with Karate.
From your first session you will begin to feel the physical and mental benefits, destressing your mind as you learn to focus on physical control.
It is a game of physical chess, using strategy, technique and talents you never realise you could develop to defeat your opponent.
Come on your own or come with your family and see how you quickly develop muscle tone and flexibility.
“What a difference it has made to my joints, fitness and general state of mind. It is the best way to keep fit I have ever come across.”
We offer a free one hour taster session on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays between 5pm and 7pm just to see if it’s an interest that could develop into a passion.
Start now if you want to be stronger, calmer, more resilient and ready for every challenge.
It is never too late to start to learn karate – our membership includes students in their 60’s! For adults who are worried that the children might pick up things quicker than they can, we run an adults only session each week, when we focus in detail on specific movements which can then be applied in the general sessions.
Karate is a low impact form of exercise, ideally suited to older people who want to improve their fitness and coordination.
We cater for disabled students and students with learning difficulties within our general training sessions. The premises have full disabled access.
As karate is a pastime which focuses on the personal development of each individual, success is not measured against others, but against yourself. There is considerable research showing the cognitive and motor function benefits of karate training for people with disabilities or mental illness, showing increases in self-confidence, self-reliance and self-esteem.
