Be the Best You Can Be!

About Us

Be the Best you Can Be!

That is our motto. Karate is a journey of optimal health and well-being in everything that we do. In our physical training, our mental discipline, and our attitude to life in general. We teach this through traditional Okinawan Goju-Ryu Karate training as a good foundation of fitness and self defence skills, sport karate tournament training, and self defence workshops and courses which are available as community classes and corporate workshops for staff. Our 30-minute Cardio & Core classes that are designed for busy people. A great option if you need low-impact options for cardio and strength exercises to complement your fitness regime if you walk, swim or run during the week.
