Free Trial Class Offer

Keen to give karate a go, but not sure if it’s for you?

The structure of the beginner class allows you to ease into your training slowly and safely. It is not necessary that you have any previous karate experience or that you are in a particular physical condition.

You can progress at your own pace in a supportive environment and will not feel pressured if you need more time to develop, as every student is treated as an individual.  Beginner classes focus on basic technique and with minimal contact activities.  Contact exercises are progressively introduced once students have gained an understanding of and confidence in the basic karate moves.

Our beginner classes are split into four age groups:

  • Brat Pack (5-6) – 1 class per week
  • Children (7-12) – 2 classes per week 
  • Adults (13+) – 2 classes per week
  • Family class (7+) – 1 class per week

Students are encouraged to attend at least two classes a week (except the Brat Back which is only run once a week) in order to develop the skills needed to feel a sense of progress.

For adults (13+) the first four classes are free, no obligation.  Just turn up at any one of the beginner classes, introduce yourself to the instructor, and give it a try.  Loose fitting clothing is fine.  New students can start at any time.  No need to book, just turn up.

For children (5-12) we only accept new members at the beginning of each new term.  Prospective members are welcome to come and view a class any time and may try a free class in the first week of the new term.

Check out our timetable for class times.  If you decide you’d like to continue to train, our Fees page outlines our beginners package and ongoing membership fees.
