Why do Martial Arts & Karate?
There are many benefits to undertaking Martial Arts. We have captured just some of them below. We recommend everyone should learn at least the basics in their lifetime. You are never to old or to young.
Developing confidence, self discipline, focus and many more essential life skills are at the heart of what we teach. Martial Arts is so much more than just kicking and punching. Check out our Life skills program.
From a fitness perspective, the techniques practised during each class involve the use of every muscle and bone in the body making it an excellent all-over body workout. Involving the entire body also serves to develop balance, agility, coordination and flexibility.
I wanted to thank you for the life skills you give the kids, especially Jacob in your karate classes...
Today Jacob encountered his first bullying experience at school. He had several kids (smaller than him) around him that were slapping, punching and pushing him around because he told them he was going to tell the teacher after witnessing his friend being kicked by them.
Jacob remained calm, told me he stood in an 'osu stance', and pushed them away just enough to get away to a teacher. He didn't want to hurt them as he easily could have but did enough to protect himself.
I'm pretty confident that without his karate training, he wouldn't have had that self defense reaction and could have possibly been hurt but he's come away from it with a great deal of pride in his actions... Skills of which he got from your class ☺️☺️
This is a fantastic club! I love the values it teaches my boys and the confidence it give them too
I haven't done it but having trained under Chris in another style I know it will be great.
