How did we do?



I decided to enrol my son into karate to help boost his confidence and self esteem. He had been getting bullied at school, but since going to karate and learning about self defence, he has put all that he has learned into practice and, much to our amazement, its kept the bullies at bay.

As an older student returning to karate after several years away, I am thrilled to find a class for the over 50s. There are even comfy mats! I’m really enjoying getting fit again and I’m learning lots from Steven and Paul who are both very knowledgeable instructors. I look forward to the classes.
