How do I get Started ?
There is no need to book as we take new students all year round so come along to a club session and the instructor coach will give you more details.
First lesson is FREE

Karate is practiced in bare feet and you will need to wear something comfortable you can exercise in. If you enjoy Karate and want to continue, Karate suits (GI’s) are available from your instructor.
