Martial Arts Classes for Children, Adults and all the Family

 

Suitable for all

We offer NEW Beginner Classes as well as other classes for our current members and the more experienced Martial Artist.

I’m not fit enough …

Training in a Martial Art does NOT require any level of fitness or strength; you will get fit as you learn.
A common misconception is ‘I need to get fit before I can start classes’; this is not the case.

Kids Starting Age

We generally start children around age 7, but can take them aged 6 (depending on how they get on).
We may introduce a Tiny Dragons class aged 4-6 years (see Classes page for future addition).

Am I too old?

Our current members are from all age groups; from children, to those well into their 70’s.

We would encourage you to try a class and see how you get on.  You are never too old.

Our Coaches keep up regular Covid testing at home for ongoing safety. 

If there are any known COVID cases in your household, then may we please ask you not to come until all members in your household are clear.

If you have come into contact with anyone that has recently tested positive please test yourself and do your best to ensure you are covid free before coming to the school.

SAFER Class Environment

Partner work: if possible, we ask each person to form a bubble with another person. Theoretically if either person becomes ill in that bubble then only the 2 people need to isolate.

There is no requirement to wear masks however, if people want to wear a mask, then that is perfectly fine.
