Beginners karate course starts 1st October 2006
We are running a beginners course at Barlby Hilltop School starting on the 1st October 2006. You will get two taster sessions free and then only pay £30 to the end of the year! By this time we hope that you / your children will be able to make an informed decision if Karate is for them.
I spent three years watching my children before I joined in at the age of 38. We have students from 7 to 70 (literally) so it is never too late to start to get a little fitter.
In the first few weeks you/your child will be taught about training etiquette, how to address Sensei etc bad behavior or horseplay is not acceptable. Don't be too alarmed; children often behave better for someone that they are unfamiliar with, than their parents or family. You/they will learn to carry out basic blocks, kicks and punches.
Students should wear loose sports clothing, no jewellery (inc.Earrings) Training suits (Gis) can be bought through the club at a discounted rate. Gis are not essential until you/they join the association at the end of the introduction course. We want people to be sure Karate is for them before Mum spends any money out on a Gi.
We see a lot of students develop in self-confidence, become more disciplined, learn to respect others and enjoy the physical activity, this is all part of martial art training. We are very proud of what our students have achieved (see some of my posts). We can also tailor training to anyones needs and actively encourage those that may need a little extra help.
We hope to see you soon, if you can't make the 1st October just pop down on a subsequent Sunday evening and speak to Sensei Ash or myself.
