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.

Martial Arts for Kids and Adults

Shizoku Martial Arts is a Christchurch karate club that uses proven street smart self defense techniques from around the globe. Combining techniques from Okinawa te Karate, Okinawa Budokan, Krav maga, Silat, Kali, Jujtsu and more to provide a system of effective techniques.

Self Defence & Life Skills

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.

Fitness, Energy And Vitality

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.

Going to karate has had a massively positive impact on my 8 year old daughter and my 6 year old son. Sensei Chris focuses on key skills, like respect, that give the students self confidence and belief. My daughter has stood up to bullies based on the confidence that karate has given her.
