Whilst we don't teach children to be aggressive, Karate training
helps to develop a child's confidence and self esteem giving them
important motor and life skills, helping them to enter society with a
confident and enthusiastic outlook. We often have parents telling us
how much their child's confidence, attitude and concentration levels
have improved as their training progresses which often has a positive
effect on their academic work .
We take children from the age of 6 years as once they have started
school they understand school disciplines and better prepared to begin
to learn karate.
We have many students that began training with us at a young age (some have been with us for over 10 years) and we find it inspiring to see how karate has played a significant part in structuring these children that have developed into confident, strong & respectable young adults.
The human body is designed to function for activity. As we age it is
important to keep your body active, which goes a long way in helping
and sustaining body systems to function well. Whatever age or fitness
level you are, training will improve and maintain your health,
flexibility and strength. It also helps to reduce stress levels and has
the extra benefit of learning self defence. Many of our members are in
the 40's 50's and some in their 60's and all have reported a increase
in there health.
Many of our members have joined us with their families, which is a
great way to share time and a common interest together and reap all the
of Karate training. As family orientated club, we offer generous family
