Adult beginners are welcome to try a trial lesson at any of the 7:00pm lessons on a Tuesday and Thursday evening at the David English Centre.
New junior and cadet students are welcome to attend either of the Tuesday or Thursday lessons.
No pre-booking is necessary. Just turn up wearing a loose T-Shirt and tracksuit bottoms and give it a go.
We can all remember our first lesson, and how unnerving it can be not knowing what to expect. We promise you will enjoy the trial lesson experience as well as gain a good insight into what martial arts training is all about.
Most people who take advantage of our free trial lesson stay with us for several years … So we have to be doing something right!
Sensei Ernie holds the office of International Vice-Chief instructor of the Japanese based IOGKF. Some beginners are daunted at the prospect of being taught by an instructor who ranks amongst the best in the World. You shouldn’t be. You will find a warm and friendly club atmosphere where you can take out of karate exactly what you want. Some of us use it for recreational exercise two or three times a week. Other are undergoing far more intensive daily training in preparation for international competitions. We cater for both ends of the sporting ambition spectrum and everyone gets along just fine.
Private Training Sessions available:
Mon-Fri: 07:00 to 16:00 Sat-Sun: 09:00 to 16:00
