The Clubs instructors are Sensei Paul Brant - 3rd Dan, Sensei Rebecca Brant -3rd Dan and Sensei Matthew Beard 2nd Dan assisted by our team of Black Belts Steve, Campbell and Warren. Whether you are just starting out in your martial arts training or an experienced Karateka, our club will have something to offer you.
For the first few weeks you/your child will be taught about training etiquette, how to address Sensei etc. Bad behaviour or horseplay is not acceptable. Don’t be too alarmed; children often behave better for someone that they are unfamiliar with, than their parents or family. You/they will learn how to carry out basic blocks, kicks and punches.
We offer training to anyone 6 years or over. Training is at Barlby High School, York Road, Barlby, Selby, North Yorkshire YO8 5JP on Monday's and Wednesday's from 6.30pm.
