The Traditional Karate basics and Kata (forms) contain many self-defence techniques and the longer a student trains, the more they understand the application. In addition to these, a number of straight forward practical self-defence techniques are also worked into the Syllabus.  This reminds students that Karate is not just a sport, a hobby or fun activity, it unfortunately sometimes in life is also a necessity.

For self-defence techniques to be effective they need to be executed with speed in an instinctive reaction to an attack. Unfortunately this cannot be attained by taking just a few self-defence classes.  For this reason, we include practical self-defence in our regular weekly practise to build students’ confidence and reaction but always remaining mindful that no one is invincible and where possible avoidance is always best.
