How old do you have to be to take Karate lessons?You must be over five years old, but there is no upper age limit. We have found that this is the age at which children have concentration and physical ability necessary to participate in classes.
What costs are involved?Classes cost £6 pay as you go cost or we have special monthly deals available: £22 one class a week £40 for two classes a week (recommended) £50 for unlimited training On top of that, there is an annual fee for a Karate Union of Great Britain (KUGB) licence, which covers membership to our National Governing Body and all insurance costs. A gi (uniform) costs £25 for sizes 150cm and below and £30 for sizes 160cm and above and comes embroidered with the club badge on. KUGB Approved Mitts (hand gloves) cost £18 and gumshields cost £4. You can buy these in a package deal together for £20.
What do I wear?For your first few classes, you can wear loose clothing such as a t-shirt and jogging bottoms. Once you know you are going to stick with Karate, you can purchase your gi (uniform) from the club.
Do I need to bring anything else with me?Yes, please bring a drink with you - preferably water but juice is okay too.
