Childrens karate lessons
Karate Kids
Kids love competition sports, but some children don't excel at them, so those participating in these sports can have diminished feelings of self-worth.

There is some overwhelming evidence that martial arts teaches self-esteem and the higher the level of self esteem, the more likely that our kids will treat others with respect, kindness and try harder at most things.

Teaching kids karate will help with their self confidence which will equip them to meet and deal with the challenges that lie ahead. 
The instructors at Guy's Karate School will encourage your kids to be the best they can be

Senior Classes

In every one of our adult martial arts classes, you'll learn self-defense skills for safety & protection... You'll experience inner-development as you push yourself.

In our Karate club students will learn the original defensive applications that are covered by our style of Shotokan Karate. These bring elements of ground fighting, joint locking, and throwing as well as the punching and kicking methods. 

Our Karate programs also includes advanced specialty classes focusing on reality-based weapon defenses (stick, gun, and knife)

Karate for Kids

Karate is a great sport for kids helping to build self-confidence, self esteem, balance, discipline, co-ordination and courtesy, while learning basic self-defence skills. Children may start training with GKS as young as 3 years of age.

GKS's Kids Classes
GKS’s kids classes endeavour to provide an encouraging atmosphere .These classes run for one hour and consist of basic training as well as many karate-associated games.

Grading System That Helps With Goals
GKS provides a coloured belt system where all students start at White belt and work up through different colours (Yellow, Green, Blue, Red, Brown, Black Tip and finally, Black belt). This helps not only to measure a child’s progress but also provides a journey to start on. Children are encouraged to set goals for these belts, which teaches them life skills of setting a target and working towards achieving it.

"After several years of other ‘martial arts’ we came to Guy’s karate. My kids were burnt out from being pushed to compete and hounded into perfectionism.
Guy’s is a real breath of fresh air! The training is friendly, age appropriate and fun, my daughter loves it and feels like she has a club she can belong to. Character is more important than medals ."
