Karate teaches respect, discipline, concentration, self defence and self control. We are a friendly club that welcome all abilities so give it a try, your first lesson is free!

The art of karate also develops and enhances physical abilities that would take a multitude of sports to develop. Students improve balance, hand-eye and hand-foot coordination, flexibility muscle tone, cardio-vascular/fitness timing and rhythm. All that and you’ll learn self defence as well.
