For young kids 5yrs and up. This class will be fundamentals of Sport Karate with Fun and Fitness…

6.45pm to 7.45pm class
This class is for kids who are serious about Sport Karate, Sparring etc… This class will be a very specific session especially structured for those interested in competing… It will be fast and dynamic and just one hour duration to keep the Athletes attention…

7.45pm to 9.30pm class
This class will start with a 15/20min Dynamic warm up… As we have a few Coaches we can divide the class up into Kumite drills/Kumite & Kata fundamentals/ Kata practice (syllabus work can also be done).

We will all finish with a cool down and structured static stretch… This will be a real training class so bring a towel… So who can do this class Adults and older teens, also Jnr Brown and Black Belts who train regular and are committed… Don’t worry if your working late you can step into this class when it suits your schedule, Junior Brown and Black Belts can finish earlier if 9.30pm is too late…

Apologies if this inconveniences anyone but we felt the structure had to be changed to suit our members…

Any questions etc please get in touch…

Karate Ash Kata Sunday

So our Kata Sunday returns after the summer break, Kata Sunday is on average once or twice per month, catering for purple belts and above.

It’s a technical class, can be tough, very enjoyable and one of our most important classes for our students.

1/ Anyone that really enjoys Kata.

2/Any Purple Belt and above that would like to progress up the ranks would need to attend on a regular basis.

3/Those who compete on a regular basis or wish to compete.

4/Purple belt and above as it can be quite technical and a certain level of understanding is required.

5/ Mainstream or Inclusive but be prepared to work and train for two hours solid.

Kata Sunday is now a pre book class, you can book and pay anytime up to the Friday before Kata Sunday (no payment on the day).

The reason we have made this a pre book class is to make sure we have a minimum of 10 to ensure the class goes ahead and we dont exceed our Kata Sunday limit of 22 (first come first served).

By pre booking it enables the Coach to do the best Session Planner based on who has booked, Ages, grades etc.

To pre Book Kata Sunday please enter your name in the diary on the date of the session and pay your €7 please.
