Great people and a great atmosphere. I've been lucky to train at many great clubs and in many different styles over the years, and it is always a real treasure to find somewhere so dedicated to teaching a genuine martial art such as this. Personally, I don't hesitate to include this club among them. Training is tough but fair, with each person finding their own level then building from there. I feel confident that training here provides both genuine physical development, but also a real sense of fulfilment from the strong historical connection you feel from an art that has such strong roots going all the way back to ancient China. Fascinating stuff, should you choose to dig. With the adult sessions, I love that the atmosphere reflects the Okinawan principle - 'damatte keiko'. My children train here as well and it's a different experience, with just enough focus for them to progress, but also relaxed enough that they can have fun while learning. Recognising these are indeed children, but at the same time maintaining an unwavering focus on respect at all times. A difficult task, one that Sam seems to manage effortlessly, I know I couldn't do it so well !!! In my time here I've seen a few of the older kids transition into young adult-hood, and they most certainly spent that time well. Great karateka, great spirit, great club. Well done Sam, your effort and dedication is always appreciated.

My son has SEN and has been encouraged and included throughout each and every session. He has gained confidence and knowledge in the classroom. I am grateful to have such an understanding staff helping him and encouraging him to believe in himself.
