Karate for Kids
This events has past

Enroll your kids and get them moving with our great Karate class taught by the super-skilled black belt Ruadhan (Ru) Mew.

As well as being a form of self-defence Karate improves fitness, flexibility, agility, confidence and self-awareness, spatial awareness and all-round wellbeing. Karate is universally recognised as one of the most comprehensive of all martial arts and is a lifelong skill. In a class with Ru Mew, you can expect lots of fun as well as expert training in the art of traditional Shotokan karate.

Karate is a combination of kicking, punching, striking and blocking techniques which the children will learn and perfect over time. They will learn Kihon – the basic moves, Kumite – the back and forth of a controlled fight and Kata – a sequence of moves choreographed.

  • Learn nonviolent conflict resolution
  • Learn to find focus and stillness
  • Learn the connection between mind and body
