Want to get fitter, stronger and learn how to protect yourself? Then our classes are for you!
What are the classes like?
A typical karate class pattern includes meditation, warm-up, strengthening and stretching exercises to begin with. At times, this may be in the format of cross-training drills or other fun activities, to achieve the same results. Then we practice Kihon (basics), Kata (pre-arranges techniques in sequence) and Kumite (sparring). However, apart from the above, no one session is the same. We also incorporate Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) which includes; grappling and joint locking techniques, all round self-defence, body conditioning, boxing training and pad work. Circuit training or a Fit 2 Fite session is also incorporated once a month to help retain overall fitness and stamina levels. Parents of children are invited to participate if they wish to join in, at no cost.
