KARATE: A JOURNEY TO SELF IMPROVEMENT
HOME_IMAGE

Karate offers students the opportunity to discover and develop their inner strength, cultivate self-discipline and build self-confidence while simultaneously  improving fitness, body strength and flexibility. Not only does it equip students with important self-defence skills, but it is also great for stress management! Karate can be learnt and practised by anybody at any age, and though many of our students start as young as five, we also have a large number of adult students ranging from beginners to 5th Dan.

Studying karate holds many benefits:

  • Improves body strength, fitness and flexibilty
  • Equips students with self-defence skills
  • Improves focus and concentration
  • Cultivates self-control and discipline
  • Boosts self confidence
  • Equips students with skills to handle bullying – not necessarily through retaliation, but trough improved confidence and self-control
  • Relieves stress
