Karate Practice

At FSC we teach the Shotokan style of karate. Our students learn the 3 technical elements- kihon (basics), kata (forms) and kumite (sparring) balanced with the lessons of respect and character development that are the foundation of Shotokan philosophy.

Students can join our program, LTK Little Karate Kas  4yrs / 8yrs old, JUNIOR's 9yrs / 13yrs old and SENIOR'S 13+. Classes are designed to effectively teach and meet the needs of each student according to age and skill level. 

KARATE CLASSES

​Shotokan

is a style of traditional Japanese Karate, a system of self-defense and personal development. During this process of learning and practicing techniques, strengthen your body and learn techniques effective in close fighting. Enjoy improved posture, increased self-confidence and gain training to avoid or minimize unavoidable violence.

                                                                                                        

Grow Confidence

As your child achieves their goals, whether it be mastering a new move or gaining the next belt, you will see their confidence and self-esteem soar.

Focus & Discipline

Karate requires children to be focussed on their instructor and teaches them to listen and carry out instructions. 
At the same time the children are also learning to follow the rules of the dojo as well as being respectful. 
All these skills are transferrable to outside of the dojo and benefit the children in their everyday life.

Build Strength & Coordination

Karate is a very physical activity and children will benefit from the exercise and increased awareness of their own bodies and how they function. 
Their control and coordination will improve, as will their fitness.

 

Reward & Recognition

Your child will learn how to set and achieve goals as they work toward each new belt. 
They will experience first-hand how commitment and effort is rewarded with results.

 

Socialisation

Increase your child’s circle of friends outside of the school environment.  Karate encourages them to interact with a range of children of different ages and also varying abilities.
Children will benefit from learning to work as teams and in pairs, learning how to communicate effectively and help each other on the way.

 

Safe Environment

Children are able to learn how to defend themselves but also how to avoid confrontation in the first place. 
All of this is done in a controlled manner by our highly experienced and DBS-checked Sensei's.

The SENIOR'S Karate Classes emphasize a positive atmosphere in which to gain all the benefits of martial arts including Reduce Stress, Build Confidence, Set Goals and get in Great Shape.

​The natural style of Japanese Karate we practice is great for teens & adults of all ages because it's based on natural stances and natural breathing.

​​We emphasize relaxed motions and lower kicks that are not only more practical for self-defense, but also great as you mature. The movements of karate develop coordination and increases strength and flexibility. 

The awarding of the higher levels of karate belts gives you a sense of achievement and accomplishment.

Karate is a self-paced activity whereby you work with your fellow students and the FSC instructors in a supportive environenment. Some of the best friends you'll ever meet might be from your Adult Karate Classes.

 

The foundation of karate is its self-defense value. We are very careful to teach adults and children that karate is not to be used outside the karate class in any manner other than in true self-defense.

The result is a self-confident individual, who does not need to bully or show-off to others.

All our students learn the importance of Black Belt Excellence, a metaphor for developing strong character.an see the improvements for yourself.

It's a myth that you have to be flexible and tough to start karate.  No matter what your shape, size or physical ability, with our coaching and support, and your effort, you can get to Black Belt and beyond.

Release Stress

What could be better after a tough day that the opportunity to hit and kick some pads?
 

Gain Confidence

As you improve your fitness, master each new move, or gain your next belt you will benefit from an increase in self-esteem and confidence.  This will transfer to your life outside of the dojo.


Build Fitness

Karate suits all physical abilities - from those who can do the splits to those who can't touch their toes.  Karate will improve your cardiovascular fitness, muscle strength and flexibility - it doesn’t matter what your starting point is, the important thing is just getting started so that you can see the improvements for yourself.
