 Families are welcome to take part and can gain a huge amount by training and learning together. The mixture of ages and skill levels is really good for pushing everybody on and providing a wonderful supportive environment.

Progress in karate is made on a grading system with people progressing through different coloured belts. Black is the highest in terms of colour but it is possible to progress further than this, advancing to first Dan, second Dan, and so on. In addition people can take classes to become instructors themselves. We are proud to offer an array of advanced courses for people who want to progress this far.

The thing that makes us stand out as the best place to learn self defence Sheffield has is we work hard to ensure everybody meets their goals. Martial arts are good for learning to protect yourself as well as keeping fit and healthy. Whether you are serious about progressing or just want to train as a hobby we can provide the right environment for you.
