How I start training?
What is Karate – Karate literally means “empty hand”. It is a fighting method which uses body parts as weapons. In the classes you will learn how to block, strike and kick effectively but most of all Karate is great training for both body and mind and an effective way to develop a strong character.
Come along any time if you would like to try karate or just come and watch a training session. Our training sessions are three times a week: Mondays, Thursdays and Saturdays. For more information please visit the timetable page or click here!
What to Bring
The only thing you will need to start to practice Karate is some loose clothing for training. Be prepared to train with bare feet, toe and finger nails must be suitably short. Also, bring a bottle of water to keep hydrated. If you decide to start training you will need to become a member of JKA (Japan Karate Association). This will provide you with insurance and enable you to progress to grade in the belt-system. We can also provide you with a Gi, the white karate suit.
What to Expect
When you first start training you will join in with the class, learning the basics of Karate. You won’t be expected to know anything because a lot of karate is taught by being shown and watching what others do. You don’t have to be fit to start with as the training will develop your fitness, stamina, co- ordination and strength.
