Children

Need to purchase a Karate Suit?

HOW OLD DOES MY CHILD NEED TO BE TO BEGIN KARATE LESSONS?

 There is no correct answer to this question. Each child is different; and, therefore the answer will be different for each child.
Based purely on 'Success Rates'; we find that 6yo is a good starting age.

  • Your child will need to have a good understanding of 'Left & Right'  ("kick with your left, punch with your right").
  • Your child will need to understand quantities. Simply knowing 'how to count', is not enough - for example; ask your child to clap 3 times (without counting).

CAN I PARTICIPATE, WITH MY CHILD?

 Yes, our 'Novice Class' is a low intensity class; provided specifically to allow children and adults to train together. 

CAN WE WATCH A CLASS, BEFORE JOINING?

Yes, of course you can.
We strongly recommend watching a session; for younger children - children can often become overwhelmed if they are not mentally prepared for their participation in a Karate Class. We allow all prospective members a "2 WEEK - FREE TRIAL" (click here)

HOW DO WE JOIN?

  1.  Click on the 'FREE TRIAL' page, and register your details.
  2. Check out our 'Locations', and select which classes best suit your location and schedule.
  3. Attend the Class that you're interested in, and introduce yourself to the instructor; They will talk you through the Membership options, and help you with any necessary paperwork.
  4. Please arrive at least 10 minutes before class.

WHAT SHOULD WE WEAR?

 You can train in your normal gym-clothes, initially.
​It is not compulsory for new Members to purchase a karate uniform immediately. 
Once you have decided to continue your training; we encourage you to purchase your Karate Suit from our 'Web-Store' - all purchases can be collected at the Dojo.
