Karate is an excellent way to improve fitness, co-ordination, stability and suppleness – skills useful in other sports. It also has the added benefits of teaching self-defence, discipline and thus increases self-confidence. Sessions are timed to allow you to participate in another sport as well. No experience is necessary. Gradings are four times a year; you could achieve a black belt in 3 to 4 years.

Our karate coach Sensei Patience Kakatie is looking forward to sharing some of the secrets of her success with our pupils when our Other Half activities start this academic year. Patience has just taken part in the British International Open Championships, at the Emirates Arena in Glasgow, on 5 September 2015, and has won Gold in the Veterans, closely followed by Bronze in the 18+ Seniors section.
