The origins of Karate go back into the mists of time. But at it’s heart Karate is a union of Kung Fu from China, and Bushido from Japan. This makes Karate a formidable martial art. Over countless generations, each master has added to it’s wisdom and knowledge. It is an all round martial art consisting of:
Mind-Body connection is the modern buzzword to help make happy healthy kids. Research shows that exercises and activities which help kids focus their minds help them concentrate, improves their school grades, reduce kids stress and anxiety, help them sleep, balances the metabolism and even strengthens their immune system. While Yoga and Pilates are recommended for improving mind-body connection, so is Karate. For many kids Karate is far more appealing. The simple act of kicking a kick bag, or punching a focus pad naturally helps kids focus, and so develop the mind-body connection so highly prized by these researchers. Actually, following it’s Buddhist heritage, mind-body connection is built into the very essence of Karate. Every Karate technique brings together the mind, body, and breath, so creating the ‘one pointed mind’. In this way Karate naturally helps kids concentrate and be fully present in the moment.
Being a traditional martial art, we use a Black Belt grading syllabus, which takes children from white to their prestigious black belt, and then beyond. Unlike many modern martial arts which have created their own personal grading systems, such as different coloured t shirts etc, a Black Belt is recognised the world over. A black belt doesn’t only show a very high level of self defence skills, which could one day save their life, but is also a very impressive part of a child’s achievement folder. We don't believe in large class sizes. The maximum we have in any class is 15, and the average size is between 8 to 12. To start with, for Junior school kids, training once a week is all that is needed. It is only later, when the children progress to our Secondary School classes, that they need to train more to get their Black Belts.
Your child’s first lesson is a FREE taster class, to see if they like it. Most kids do. Then kids pay £19 for their first month via this website below. This also gives your child a FREE Karate suit normally worth £19.95. After this children pay £19 by standing orders (not direct debit) which can be cancelled by you at any time.
Alternatively, for parents who don’t like standing orders and like to good deal, parents can also pay for a Yearly Dragon Card which is a one off payment which gives you 2 months FREE, and with no standing orders. This costs £190, and your child still gets the FREE Karate suit. For care free training simply pay for it below.
The class is held every Wednesday 5-5.55pm in the Sydenham Community Centre, Parkway, Bridgwater TA6 4QZ. We use the side door which is kept open until the lesson starts (we close it during the lesson for safeguarding issues). If you arrive late simply know on the door and we’ll let you in.
