What will I learn?

karate-what-will-i-learn Students will learn a mix of traditional Shotokan Karate comprising of Kihon (linear basics), Kata (patterns/formal exercise) and Kumite (everything from controlled sparring through to self-defence & true Kata bunkai/applications). Children & adults learn a tailored syllabus, with the children's focus being on technique and the personal development side of Karate. The adult syllabus is a Karate Jutsu system which puts more focus on the self-defence, personal development and understanding of the true meaning and origins of the Karate techniques being taught. There are options for both adults and children to compete in Karate competitions and learn weapons skills.
