Is martial arts violent?2017-04-10T13:37:44+00:00

No! Because self-defense technique is taught in martial arts, it’s often thought of as violent. However, the philosophies behind martial arts revolve around peace and harmony. The moves are more of a way to become connected with your body. We teach diplomacy and friendship. However, if a violent situation ever arises in your life, you’ll have powerful tools to defend yourself and your loved ones.

What level of fitness is required for martial arts?2017-04-10T13:37:01+00:00

People come to us of all fitness levels. We get natural-born athletes, and we get people who have a harder time with athletic endeavors. However, everyone gets the same focus and attention.

If you’re not in great shape, don’t worry. Go at your own pace, and we’ll do everything we can to help you learn each and every technique. Soon enough, your physical fitness will improve, and you’ll be in better shape than ever!

Is there a risk for injury with martial arts?2017-04-10T13:36:18+00:00

Any sport or form of exercise comes with a risk of injury. However, there are a few things that make our program very safe. It’s because of these few things that we barely see any injuries with our program.

Stretching: At the beginning of every class we go through a series of stretches. These stretches get your muscles and joints ready and warmed up for exercise.

Supervision: Every class is supervised by trained, licensed professionals. We watch carefully to make sure no student is doing anything in a dangerous or unsafe way.

In short, we place a tremendous amount of focus on fun and safety. It’s because of this that we feel confident telling you that while there is risk for injury with our program – it’s a very small risk.

Do you have experience teaching children with a physical disability or ADHD /Autism / Asperger’s etc?2017-04-10T13:34:55+00:00

Absolutely! Over the years we’ve worked with many kids who need a little more attention with great results.

How big are the kids classes?2017-04-10T13:32:48+00:00

As we have 6 clubs it can depend on which venue you are visiting.

Some classes will have 10 kid’s and some will have 30 kid’s so it’s best to email me for the finer details.

My child is very shy and I am concerned they won’t want to train with children they don’t know.2017-04-10T13:32:06+00:00

This is very common and when I first meet the child I can evaluate how confident the child is before they start. I know when to give lots of praise and encouragement when it’s needed…Plus I have an amazing rapour with the kids.

Can I watch my child train?2017-04-10T13:31:26+00:00

Yes. We welcome parents to sit and watch while the training session continues.

Can girls attend your classes?2017-04-10T13:30:47+00:00

Of course! I have had the pleasure of teaching some amazing girls who reached BLACK BELT.

Simply put girls make amazing Martial Artists.

Do children ever get hurt in class?2017-04-10T13:30:07+00:00

This is a very rare occurrence BUT of course kids will inevitably trip and fall over as they would do at home at play. When the children first start they are either punching the air or pads so the risk to them is tiny.

What martial art will my child learn?2017-04-10T13:29:28+00:00

As our style of Karate is Sport Karate it incorprates some Kickboxing techniques BUT the traditional element of their training comes from a traditional Karate style called Wado-Ryu.

What should my child wear to their first class?2017-04-10T13:28:52+00:00

Loose fitting clothes such as joggers and a t-shirt is ideal. Remember it will be bare foot training and don’t forget to bring some water or squash.

What age can my child begin training?2017-04-10T13:26:37+00:00

We have just reduced our minimum age to 4 years old!
