Training with us
Training in our classes is for adults and teenagers only and if you did karate as a child you’ll find that what we do is rather different. We welcome people of all genders from a wide range of backgrounds to our classes.
Our goal is to help you be the best you can be and we believe in supporting students at all levels of ability with individual coaching in a friendly training environment. We are happy to see if we can support and help students that have any form of disability join in as much of our activity as they feel possible.
The Practical Karate Association teaches traditional Shotokan Karate kata to give context to our sparring drills and to provide exercises for home training. We do not march up and down in lines! We use modern coaching methods alongside traditional martial arts skills so we can give our students support and training that is focused on them.
In addition to our regular classes students can take part in our world class scenario training Sim Days which focus on the legal and moral issues of self protection.
