Beginners Martial Arts For Kids

We run a special beginner’s martial arts class on a Wednesday at 4.15pm.  This class solely focuses on teaching beginners at white to yellow belt level.  Beginners are welcome at all classes but many students who are new to martial arts prefer to attend this class whilst building their skills and then progress to additional training when they feel confident in the basics.

Kids Karate

A typical class starts with a warmup and stretches followed by some karate.  You’ll learn a variety of punching, kicking and self-defence techniques which have been organised into a kata.  A kata is a combination of self-defence moves put together into a sequence to make them easy to learn.  Each different coloured belt will learn a different kata and this series of moves will be practised and form part of the grading.

Kids Kickboxing

Sparring is a crucial part of learning self-defence as this allows participants to learn, apply and refine self-defence techniques in a one on one or group setting.  Kickboxing is an excellent way to gain reality-based fighting experience in a controlled and safe setting.   We wear boxing gloves/soft mitts and padded shin protectors for maximum safety and only use light contact. 

Kids Self-defence and Jujitsu

After a few rounds of kickboxing, we then move to the mat for self-defence and Jujitsu.  Here we cover a range of different attacks and defensive combinations.  Children are taught an array of different throws, blocks, break falls (safe ways to fall), joint and wrist locks and other self-defence methods aimed at protecting themselves and neutralising the threat from one or multiple attackers.  

All-Inclusive Kids Martial Arts Classes

Our kids’ martial arts classes are all-inclusive, so we take children of all ages, backgrounds and abilities.  Our tutors will work with each child so they can learn at their own pace and feel confident and in control.  Learning martial arts is more than self-defence, our classes help build confidence, self-control, respect, discipline and resilience which are great all-round life skills.

Adult Mixed Martial Art Classes – What to Expect

Karate

Classes start with a warmup and some stretching before moving into Tugra Shan Karate  techniques. You’ll learn numerous kicks, punches, blocks and parries along with dynamic katas.

Kickboxing

Karate is followed by Kickboxing. You’ll learn all the basics including kickboxing combinations, controlled partner drills and then move on to freestyle sparring.  Participants can select either low, middle of full contact sparring depending on their experience and goals.

Jujitsu & Self-Defence

Once the kick boxing is complete we then move to the mats for Jujitsu and self-defence. Students will learn various takedowns, throws, joint locks and manipulation, escape moves, submission and finishing techniques.

Brazilian Jiu- Jitsu

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is taught in a separate class on a Wednesday night.  Training is conducted by Professor Marcio Maia who studied in Brazil.   You’ll learn positioning techniques, closed and open guards, escapes, takedowns, throws and submissions and rolling (sparring).

Martial Arts Weapons Classes (Adults only)

Fighting with weapons is a specialist part of our martial arts classes.  Weapons classes are incorporated into Wednesday and Thursday classes during the last week of the month only.  Weapons training is voluntary and covers both eskirma stick fighting and Japanese swordsmanship. All equipment needed is provided by the club.

Martial Arts Weapons Training (Adults only)

Eskrima Stick Fighting

Eskrima Stick Fighting is a form of armed combat similar to sword fighting which uses traditional 28” (71cm) blunt ended eskrima sticks.  We teach a mixture of mid and close-quarter fighting techniques and classes focus on drills, katas and disarms.  Stick fighting is dynamic and exciting and there are plenty of opportunities to practise armoured sparring throughout the year.

Iaijutsu Sword fighting

Iaijutsu Sword fighting is a combative quick draw sword technique.  We teach footwork and stances, cutting and blocking techniques and sparring using either wooden (bokken) or steel swords (katana).  Katana can be blunt (liato) or sharp (shinken) depending on experience.  Classes focus on katas, kumitachi (partnered techniques) along with safety and sword handling techniques.

Martial Arts Uniforms & Equipment

A stylish black uniform is included as part of your initial membership fee.  After this you will need either soft mitts or boxing gloves along with shin guards or shin instep protectors and a mouthguard to participate in kickboxing sparring sessions.  We sell all this equipment along with uniforms, belts, eskrima sticks, bokken and saya (wooden sword and sheath) at heavily discounted prices for club members.
