Karate isn't a martial arts to be taken lightly. Once you start, it is a way of life. From the way you wash and fold your Gi, it is an art in itself. Karate becomes a new way of learning and embracing the traditional ways makes the path more understandable.
From kata, through to competition fighting, you will adapt and become a winner and learning the true meaning of each moves installs discipline, control and concentration.
No matter if you do this for fitness, self confidence or self-defence, the journey will come with highs and lows, but regardless of how long you train, you will never stop learning.
"Nothing is more harmful to the world than a martial art that is not effective in actual self-defence."
