Karate is another of our core sports and a very popular choice for both children and adults. Our style of Karate is Kyo Rei Shukokai and is taught by its founders, London Karate. Classes are active and fun but also very disciplined.Like all of our other core sports there are many benefits that both boys and girls can take from karate including strength, stamina, agility, speed, self defence and as mentioned discipline. All of these are fantastic life skills that will help with development of young and old alike.
Karate is primarily about self defence teaching a variety of moves, holds and throws. We run karate classes for children as young as 4 and upto the age of 15. View our timetable here. We have some of the finest karate coaches, some of whom have competed at international level thus ensuring we can guarantee a superb platform for you or your child when participating in karate.
Our karate classes are progressive in nature and all of our students follow the belt system, this is the perfect way to gauge their development in the martial art. We are very proud to have had children as young as 14 attaining black belt status and can confidently say this is something all of our students can aspire to. View the Karate belt grading system here.
Our karate students are also given the opportunity to take part in tournaments organised by The Park Club and London Karate that parents are also welcomed to come along and view, whilst these can seem quite aggressive in nature we can assure you that they are a huge source of enjoyment for all of the children and adults taking part and are run in an extremely safe and controlled manner, they are a sight to behold. See what tournaments we have here.
As with our other core sports here we pride ourselves in the equipment and facilities we are able to offer our members, Karate is no different. Our mirrored studios are a great example of this and a vital tool in assisting any karate student learning vital moves. As well as this we have just about the best safety mats available for martial arts. Our mats well exceed the safety standards of mats used for the purpose of throws, jumps and falls thus ensuring as safe a environment as we can possibly provide.
