All of our Clubs are family orientated. Just come along to any of our classes and see how many children and their parents, or siblings, train together. They are able to spend quality time together in a safe and structured environment; what better way to pass a few hours! Indeed why not look at our instructors profiles and see the evidence for yourself. Many of them started out training with their children, and indeed many still do.

Come and join in
We know the biggest step is the one through the door as we have all taken it. You will immediately be welcomed and the first thing that will strike you is the buzz in the Club as parents children and older students mingle. Yes we do teach any age and have those of more senior years in our classes as beginners. We are always happy for you to observe a class and it is surprising how quickly even the shyest want to get onto the mat and join in. We accept it is not for everyone and for this reason the first lesson is always free. Even after that we do not demand up-front payments and all clubs operate a “Pay As You Train” Philosophy. All of our instructors have alternative ways of making a living and are not reliant on training fees to survive.
“Since starting karate earlier this year I notice that both of my boys are more confident…”
“My son’s life has been changed since he started Kyushindo, thank you”
Kyushindo is a “soft” style of both Judo and Karate. It is not based on physical strength or bulk but on technique, balance and speed. It uses circular movement harnessing an opponent’s strength and using it against them. Consequently, it is eminently safer, particularly for children, than many other styles of martial arts. This is not to say it is not as effective, just watch our instructors working together or demonstrating the use of technique and you will see why we teach the way we do. We also recognize that our students have to go to school or work the next morning!

“I bring my children because it strengthens the mind, the body and the spirit in a fun family environment”
