Why study karate?

The emphasis on developing the whole body through regular exercise and training make karate an excellent means of promoting good general health and fitness.

The application of the self-defence techniques builds confidence and promotes personal security.

Highly dynamic, karate makes balanced use of the various body muscles, provides excellent all-around exercise and develops coordination and agility.

Further benefits include improved self-discipline, strength and flexibility.

Karate training helps students develop practical self-defence skills in a controlled atmosphere, and is an excellent way to relieve stress.

Karate, like most martial arts, is 90 per cent mental and 10 per cent physical.
