Whether you’re a karate novice or you’ve practiced karate before, this course is suitable for all levels. 

AKA Combat Karate has its roots in traditional Shotokan Karate however we cross-train, therefore many elements of martial arts are included (striking, kicking, throwing and grappling). The training covers technique, pad work, forms and street self-defense. Karate will help to develop; awareness, confidence, power, speed and coordination. 

Karate has lots of other benefits too; it helps to develop patience, courage, self-confidence and self-control (among many more) and will have a positive effect on both your body and mind.

You also can compete in combat karate tournaments and Olympic-style karate (WKF). There is no stress on competition; it’s entirely up to the participant if they want to compete.
