Fantastic friendly and inclusive club with a huge focus on the kids and the enjoyment of karate in a friendly group environment. The instructors Paul, Dave and Liz are fantastic and work tirelessly to improve the club and include the kids in as much as they can.
All in all if you want your kids to get some exercise and learn a martial art in a friendly safe environment this is the club.



My daughter loves coming to Karate. She trains with the club 3+ times a week. Chief instructor Paul Sensei is fantastic at teaching. His passion for Karate certainly rubs off on his students. Liz Sensei and Dave Sensei are also great, as a parent, I love watching Liz explain the basic moves to the younger students. 

The confidence, self esteem and resilience my daughter has is priceless and I believe this is all down to being part of a fantastic Karate family that nurtures their students to be the best they can be.



Can't recommend the club highly enough. My daughter started just over a year ago and was made extremely welcome . She thoroughly enjoys the classes , the team help build confidence and encourage all levels of ability and ages.



Great family oriented club. I train with both the senior and the junior and belts as the classes are such good fun. The teaching and leadership team are superb.Can heartily recommend for both children and their parents. Come join us!!
