For class details please visit our Calendar.
We take children from 6 years upwards.
Even though our classes are very structured and disciplined, we aim to make classes fun, but the emphasis is on the learning of the art.
We aim to promote confidence, respect and self discipline within our younger students ti equip them with the tools for coping with everyday life. We also support and encourage students in their academic studies.
Our grading system is formulated in a progressive way and is run in parallel with the adult syllabus.
Full protective equipment is used when sparring takes place to minimise the chance of injury and all students have the opportunity to take part in internal and outside competitions where we have had success in the past.
You are welcome to come along to see our classes for a FREE taster session.
