Karate is a form of 'meditation in motion' which allows us to clear are minds and be fully present. It develops mental focus, self-discipline, confidence & fitness. Karate is an excellent way to work towards your fitness goals while learning to defend yourself. Anyone can begin training karate at any age or fitness level.
You'll build skills gradually with our internationally acclaimed instructors, learning techniques like blocks, kicks & punches. You will learn kata (aka - forms - a series of set movements designed to defend against imaginary attackers) and also practice these techniques with partners.
