Starting Karate

Karate is a martial art, a type of self-defence, from Japan. This is why the counting, names, and commands are in Japanese. Some students will find some bits easy and other bits not so easy. But it is possible for everybody to do karate, it just takes time, practice, and most of all commitment in regular training and attendance. 

When you first start karate you can wear tracksuit bottoms and T shirt, karate is practiced in bare feet. If you find that you enjoy karate and intend to stay at the club you should wear a karate suit. These are normally available from your instructor. There are also a wide range of books, punch bags and karate equipment available.

Just turn up to any of the classes listed below. New students are welcome to start anytime.
