In the Teen & Adult Karate programme, your journey into martial arts is INDIVIDUAL TO YOU, your body type, your capabilities/limitations, your needs, your goals!
The programme is designed to empower ordinary people to achieve what for them could be extra-ordinary results, often resulting in a massive boost in confidence.

- great stress buster
- self protection
- holistic: body, mind & spirit
- great fun
Traditional Karate is a study of body mechanics/structures, correct breathing and balance which allows the Karateka (practitioner) to generate efficient movement and seemingly extraordinary amounts of power. Alongside this, our programme also teaches awareness, modern street psychology, vulnerable points, joint locks, takedowns/throws, setting up an aggressor for a pre-emptive strike (only when absolutely necessary) and legal/moral requirements.
As well as teaching Shotokan Karate to high technical standards, we include influences from various other martial arts (including Wing Chun, Tai Chi, Combat JuJutsu and Reality Based Martial Arts).
Classes are held in a friendly and supportive environment.
