Meet Our Instructors
Hello, I'm Nick but known as Master James in class.
I have been training in Martial Arts for twenty-seven years now and commenced my training in 1994 where I passed my first black belt dan test in 1998, followed by my second, third fourth and fifth dan.
Hi, I'm Adele.
I started my training back in 2012, and in October 2015 I passed my 1st Dan grading. I then passed my 2nd Dan in December 2017.
Hi, I'm Chris.
I've been training since 2009 and in 2012 I passed my 1st Dan grading, followed by my 2nd Dan in 2015 and my 3rd Dan in 2017.
What do you think!
My son had been doing karate for over 6 months at a previous club where he was unhappy. After speaking with Master James and being invited for 2 FREE taster lessons, my son loved it. He learnt more from his first taster lesson than he'd done in 6 months at his old club.
Great family friendly club. Take your fitness to the next level and learn a martial art at the same time. 👊
Family Karate Clubs were very welcoming when my son first started. Nick made him feel at ease as he was very nervous and shy, he was included in all the training activities and got to watch the higher grade students learn to give him an insight into what he can do.
I’ve always wanted to do self-defence training, but have been too nervous to join a club. I rang and spoke to Nick at who was very friendly and was invited to have 2 trial sessions to see if I liked it. Best thing I have ever done and the staff and members are so friendly, it’s like one big family.
