This weeks class schedule

Designed to be fun, practical and safe our kids beginner karate classes teach students the fundamentals of martial arts with the main focus on self-defence and self-discipline. Students will have a comprehensive syllabus to learn which will increases in difficulty as progress through the grades.


Suitable for all students kids and adults who are of at least yellow belt grade. Our intermediate classes are more advanced than our beginners class and are run in a more serious nature with the focus on learning the techniques and the art of karate with minimal focus on the fun element of the beginners class.

In todays society learning to defend yourself and your family has never been more important. Our adult classes teach you vital self-defence techniques whilst building confidence and fitness to enable you to do so. Our adult karate classes are for any adult or young adult aged 13 and over of all levels and abilities.

The main hall where we train is approximately 20×10 meters and has a good flooring. We have the facilities to equip half of the room with specialist martial arts matting which allows us to practise our judo, break falls and rolls when needed. We also have the ability to hang several punch bags from the walls to allow our students to practice some solo bag work.


The dojo has ample parking facilities directly outside the venue, inside there are a male and female designated changing rooms with showers and two sets of toilets. The main hall is spacious with the option to have the heating turned on. There is a viewing gallery overlooking the main hall where you can watch our class.

We always encourage our students to better themselves, encourage each other and set an example inside and outside of the dojo. Higher graded junior students who always have an exemplary attitude and train to a high level are often promoted to a junior instructor role within the club. Junior Instructors are given the opportunity to help out with the beginners, teaching them the basics and helping out where necessary. This gives them a sense of responsibility and helps build their confidence as well as giving them the recognition they deserve.
