AGES 5 - 12

Discipline and Confidence

Our Kids Classes are designed to provide the important lessons of discipline and self defence while being a fun experience where the kids can make friends and improve their social confidence.

Discipline Focus

We use traditional Japanese training methods to build a base of discipline for our kids which transfers over from the mat to back home.
The lessons of respect for yourself, your family, the teachers, the mat and each other are paramount and influence our students in a positive way.

Making Friends and Having Fun

While we have a strong emphasis on discipline we understand how to get the most out of the kids is to have some fun with team building exercises and fun games in every class, growing their social confidence and keeping them engaged.

Student Testimonials

"I have trained with this club since 2015. It was a new years resolution for me to get fit and learn a defence but it became much more than than. The instructors are the best people I have ever met and the other students were so welcoming and friendly. We became a family, not just a self defence class. I learned self defence, self control, I learned to feel safe in communities that were threatening. I knew that if I ever needed to defend myself I could. Joining this club gave me confidence, made me physically and mentally strong and it became the best new years resolution I ever made"

Katy Privilage

"This is an update to my review from last year. Keith, the head instructor, continues to create classes that teach practical, effective skills while being very enjoyable to take part in.
Lately Keith has upgraded some of the syllabus in order to keep it as up-to-date as possible. These upgrades are always easy to grasp and expand on our abilities and understanding of the system as a whole."

Paddy Mcgrath

"If you want to learn a effective self defense system with some great people and want to push yourself at the same time then this is the place to go i started two years ago with my son and under the chief instructors Keith and his wife Sue who have many years of experience and qualifications in several martial arts.
I was made to feel welcome and taught a self defence system that could help me and my son in any moment in our lives from simple things like being aware of surroundings to a standard that we just do it automatically and and also how to defend ourselves or our family or friends if we was attacked."
