Our training aim is to provide the environment, knowledge and skills for people to enjoy training from childhood through to old age as is the traditional Okinawan way.
From teaching children who are just beginning to develope their co-ordination and understanding, to adults who are hoping to learn a new skill and improve or regain fitness, traditional karate has much to offer all ages.
The structured syllabus of Sessen Ryu with it 9 belts up to and including Black Belt means that there is a broad range of techniques to perfect
Typically a class will start with warmup and stretching. As karate covers a broad spectrum of techniques and skills, we weekly build on different skills including improving personal stamina, strength and flexibility, acquiring basic techniques such as blocks, strikes, kicks and stances, learning self-defence along with sparring and grappling. Also a lot of traditional training is designed to instill an inner strength and to help practitioners overcome adversity. This can be achieved in class through self improvement attained through perseverance.
