Karate is a holistic form of exercise developing body awareness and a calmer mind, reducing aggression. Through regular practice we become fitter, stronger and more flexible.

Our training aims to improve confidence while developing practical and effective self protection skills.
What is Kissaki-Kai Karate?
Kissaki-Kai is a return to a reality based system of self protection and personal development, which pre-dates the sport based systems that dominate martial arts practice today (often masquerading as "traditional" systems). It is underpinned by effective, no nonsense techniques and is accessible to anyone who has a genuine desire to learn, irrespective of age, gender or level of fitness.
