Beginners Classes

We would like to welcome all beginners and new members.

We know it’s hard to start off not knowing anyone or not ever having done karate before but we’re going to do all we can to make it easier for you so go for it!

Every term, we hold a dedicated beginners class. These kick off with a nice, six week intro-to-karate for you to properly try it out.There we teach you some really basic but effective self-defence tricks, introduce you to the karate-way of training, and give you a bit of zen downtime from your hectic college schedule. Classes are relatively informal in comparison to the more senior classes, and offer you the perfect opportunity to try out and master the basic techniques which will serve you for years to come.

Once you’re confident enough, there is the opportunity for beginners to begin training with the Intermediates on Thursdays.

For the Autumn 2019 semester, the six week course for beginners will start on Thursday, September 19th, 2019, in the Mardyke Arena, Hall 1, at 18:00 hrs. Beginners classes will be held every Tuesday from then on through the semester.

All you need are comfortable clothes (tracksuit pants and t-shirt are ideal), and a willingness to go barefoot! 🙂
