What age can my child begin training?
We have a rule of thumb of 5 years old as our starting point however If your child is around 4 1/2 years old we would do an assessment to see if a class would be to much for them at this early age.
What should my child wear to their first class?
Loose fitting clothes such as joggers and a t-shirt is ideal. Remember it will be bare foot training and don't forget to bring some water or squash.
What martial art will my child learn?
Our style of Martial Arts is Sport Karate which incorprates Kickboxing and traditional Karate known as Wado-Ryu.
Do children ever get hurt in class?
This is a very rare occurrence BUT of course kids will inevitably trip and fall over as they would do at home at play. When the children first start they are either punching the air or pads so the risk to them is tiny.
Can girls attend your classes?
Of course! I have had the pleasure of teaching some amazing girls who reached BLACK BELT.
Simply put girls make amazing Martial Artists.
Can I watch my child train?
Yes. We welcome parents to sit and watch while the training session continues.
My child is very shy and I am concerned they won't want to train with children they don't know.
This is very common and when I first meet the child I can evaluate how confident the child is before they start. I know when to give lots of praise and encouragement when it's needed...Plus I have an amazing rapour with the kids.
How big are the kids classes?
As we have 6 clubs it can depend on which venue you are visiting.
Some classes will have 10 kid's and some will have 30 kid's so it's best to email me for the finer details.
Do you have experience teaching children with a physical disability or ADHD /Autism / Asperger’s etc?
Absolutely! Over the years we’ve worked with many kids who need a little more attention with great results.
How much will training cost?
Ok here's where we stand out from lot's of our competitors!
