BENEFITS OF KARATE

Practitioners of Karate will all agree that in their everyday lives they have become more patient, happy, and content.

Karate is a marvellous sport and from it's practice one will gain stamina, agility, suppleness, increased vitality, self-confidence and self-control.

Karate techniques are artistic and fun to perform and can be practised by men and women of all ages and build.

The self-defence aspects of training are two-fold. Firstly, the techniques are of a defence and attack nature, and one will automatically become adept at defending oneself by applying these techniques in the various forms of sparring. Secondly, and just as importantly, the self-confidence and self-respect that one attains through training will stand out dramatically, making any would-be assailant think twice.

 


"
You are one of my best and most
trusted students. Even if we part company, i will have the same
opinion of you."

to Nick Adamou 8th November 1988.
