.... and what we do
Our main karate school classes run Mondays to Thursdays, and we have a New Starters intake at the beginning of every school term. We run children's classes for ages 5 to around 7 (Little Dragons) and 7+ (Karate Kids).
We also run a fabulous Saturday Morning class for Pre-Schoolers; check out the Panda Tots tab for more information and to book.
Our aim is to build a child's confidence and self-esteem through achievement in Wado-Ryu karate and other self-defence techniques, in a fun and friendly atmosphere. We do this using by practising karate & self-defence activities, mixing in games that develop co-ordination, balance and quick reactions.
We also expand on the 'self-protection' aspect of karate by working with students on life skills; such as knowing your parent's phone number for the little ones, through to anti-bullying strategies for the older children.
Although the majority of our students are children, we also have a flourishing Adults class (for adults of all ages!), starting at 14yrs, with no upper age limit.
See the information in the dropdown menu above from the 'classes'
