An exciting and challenging training programme that will give you:

Karate lessons Self-defence – Some people seem to have the wrong impression that self-defence and karate are two different things. People often ask me if I teach self-defence as well as karate. I try to explain to them that karate is self-defence. Still it seems there is a lot of confusion over this. Self-defence courses may help a little at the time, but little and often can be a dangerous thing, anyway 6 months down the road most of what you have learnt is soon forgotten. The bottom line is that there are no shortcuts to learning good self-defence.

So how can I learn to defend myself quickly and efficiently you might ask!

The karate that we teach has everything for everybody, and has a wider range of practical
self-defence techniques compared to most other karate clubs, and you wont have to wait until you’re a black belt to learn how to defend yourself because we teach our students right from the very beginning how to apply their karate techniques effectively into real life situations. We are able to do this because our chief instructor has been training for over 53 years. During that time he has trained with some of the worlds top self-defence masters. His techniques have also been proven to work in real life situations. One of his past students told him that his techniques actually saved his life from a knife attacker.
Along with the correct training, attitude, discipline, the other important ingredients listed below creates the total package. If you are serious about learning karate then you must be willing to work hard and make some sort of ongoing commitment to your training. This is not easy in today’s society, but doing this will insure that you will always be proficient at self-defence while at the same time keeping yourself mentally and physically fit throughout your life.

If taught and used correctly you will find that karate is one of the most devastating forms of empty-handed self-defence.

IMPORTANT FACTORS TO CONSIDER FOR SELF-DEFENCE

FOCUS

Not something that is easily managed, especially in today’s fast moving and often stressful environment. However karate can help you to develop a greater self control and focus that as well as in everyday life can be used within an emergency situation.

AWARENESS

Learning to be aware of your surroundings and avoiding dangerous situations is a vital key to good self-defence.

GREATER FLEXIBILITY

Achieved from a programme that is designed to take into account individual ability and the needs of all our students.

FASTER REFLEXES & CO-ORDINATION

These are normal functions that come with the constant practise of ones technique.

SELF CONFIDENCE

This does not come naturally to many people, but self-confidence can be developed over a period of time. Through karate you develop new goals, your confidence level increases. Karate instils a sense of strength, discipline and achievement that can carry over into all aspects of your life.

CALMNESS & FOCUS

Not something that is easily managed, especially in today’s fast moving and often stressful environment. However karate can help you to develop a greater self control and focus that as well as in everyday life can be used within an emergency situation. As in the case of our chief instructor who saved the lives of a mother and her three children from a house fire.

SELF-ESTEEM

Is achieved by feeling good about your accomplishments. It’s a great feeling “be the best”

FITNESS

From the cardiovascular and endurance workouts of karate you will achieve greater energy. Counter any weight problems, develop a strong, toned and more healthy body especially the heart and lungs, toning you gradually into the best shape of your life. Research into the combined mental and physical side of karate along with a healthy life style concludes that it counteracts the deterioration of the body, helping to fight premature ageing.

Karate can truly change your life for the best as its done for others.
