We love Guys Karate School! Our daughter has really come out of her shell socially and her confidence as improved greatly!! She was super nervous on her first day, the sensei’s got along side her and helped calm her nerves! They’re always super encouraging and I’m not sure how they do it but they always remember each kids name!! Would 100% recommend 🙂

Highly recommended! Guy's Karate School has been fantastic for my kids. Their family orientated approach and huge range of lesson options has seen our family continually succeed, resulting in my kids overcoming anxiety, learning important life skills, achieving expertise in martial arts, and approaching all challenges with an expectation of triumph. Thank you to Lindsay Guy and your fantastic, professional team for helping create a family of accomplished martial artists and confident students.

After trying several other schools we are amazed by the trainers here. The manner in which they work with every student, from the littlest kids to the adults, to guide them to achieve their best is second to none. My boys have come ahead in leaps and bounds since moving here and I’m excited to see what their future holds with GKS.

Lindsay is an amazing professional, in a very short period of time he has changed my nephew, who has special needs, life around. He is now focused, positive, has increased self esteem and is getting healthier. He has achieved a level in his karate that would not have been thought possible. Lindsey is kind and understanding whilst still expecting a very high input from his student
