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:
  • Kicks and Punches,
  • Elbows and Knees
  • Throws and Takedowns
  • Holds and Submissions
  • Defence against street weapons such as knives
  • Defence against the techniques of other styles
  • Strikes- such as Karate chops and claw hand
  • Wrist locks and arms locks
  • Pressure points
  • Breaking wood to demonstrate effectiveness
  • Traditional Karate weapons such the sword, staff and nunchuku
  • And much more
But the ancient masters knew that copying moves and simply ‘kicking a kick bag’ isn’t enough. There are other more advanced aspects of martial training which Karate teaches. Such as
  • Timing and rhythm
  • Mental Focus
  • Footwork and Rooting
  • Discipline and politeness
A Traditional Martial Art for a Modern Age: when Karate was made part of the Japanese school curriculum in the 1920’s it was not only because of the excellent self defence skills that Karate offered, but because the Japanese realised that Karate kids were healthier, had better physiques, and better balance and coordination. They noticed how the discipline within Karate helped children gain better concentration and develop within the children better self images. In my 30 years experience of teaching children Karate I have seen for myself the benefits children gain, how shy children gain confidence and come out of their shells, while hyperactive children learn how to concentrate and calm down. As children’s minds are still forming they have the naturalness of Karate which adults find impossible. Like a fine wine children’s natural abilities need to be enhanced and matured slowly. Otherwise, like a fine wine itself, disaster is likely to happen. (written by the Karate Chief Instructor of the Centre)

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.

Class Sizes: We don't believe in large class sizes. The maximum we have in any class is 20, and the average size is between 12 and 16. We are very lucky in being able to do this because tthis is a full-time Centre, and when one class gets full simply start another class without any increase in rent.This means that the kids get much more individual attention, and so  gain the high standard of Karate expected in the Centre.... and all for only £19 per month.

Our House System: Like schools, every child in the Centre is in a house, headed by one of the Masters in the Centre: This promotes ‘friendly competition’ in the Centre, with the emphasis on both ‘friendly’ and ‘competition’. Each child belongs to the house of their current teacher. House competitions, of one form or another are held termly and are free to members of the Centre.

Belts 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.

Classes are held in the Beacon Centre, Rayners Lane
Our kids Karate classes are now held in the Beacon Community Centre, Scott Crescent, HA2 0TY. This is a fantastic new centre with great facilities and ample parking and is on the H12 bus route. Below you can see a Google map showing our new location.

Free Taster Session: Children who wish to start get a FREE taster session.   You can book your child into one of these FREE classes below.

Monthly Fees which won't break your bank: After their FREE taster lesson children pay for the first month online below. Children can choose to either train once a week for £19 a month, or unlimited training in all our Karate classes for £29 a month. Both give your child a FREE Karate suit worth £19.95. After the first month children normally pay for lessons monthly by standing order (at the same prices). Please note that this is a standing order- NOT a direct debit, and  can be cancelled by you at any time. 

For those who don't like standing orders, and who like a good deal, you can also pay yearly for lessons and get two months FREE.  That is only £190 for a Once a Week Dragon Card, and £290 for a Karate Dragon Card which gives your child unlimited Karate training. Of course this still gives your child a FREE Karate suit.  For care free training simply pay for it below.

Family Discount. To help financially we give 50% discount on a second child training in the Centre from the same family. So, for example, two kids  training from the same family (which normally costs £19) only costs £29 for both of them.
