Did you know that…

  • Children who train in karate are much less likely to be bullied – or become bullies – as they develop greater self-confidence and respect for others
  • Children’s work and classroom behaviour can be greatly improved through karate’s disciplined and respectful training environment
  • There are over 600 muscles in the human body and you will use every one of them during an average karate class
  • An adult student can burn over 1000 calories in a typical one hour karate class with many reporting significant weight loss during the first 6 months
  • Karate kicking engages all muscle groups in the upper and lower abdominal areas and strengthens the lower back
  • Enhanced flexibility from karate training can greatly increase posture and vitality… and can assist in the prevention of many age-onset injuries
  • Accomplishments in karate are often seen in a positive light by prospective employers who rightly attach images of strength, trust and good character to those who study it.

Started training at 47 years young and am now 55 and still going strong! GKR Has been the best thing ive ever done, I cant wait for 2 years time when my first grandson is old enough to begin training with me. The family atmosphere and camaraderie has been amazing.

We train in the same class as our 2 kids (aged 11 and 6). There's not many sports that you can do that with, let alone sports that provide such lifelong benefits and skills for the kids. Training together is something we really cherish and the instructors are fantastic with everyone even though we were total beginners when we started. Getting the kids away from their screens and into the dojo doing something productive, and together, is something ill always be greatful for.

I was so nervous to start training but its been the best thing i've ever done! I've gained friends, lost weight, and feel amazing. Thankyou for being so patient with me :-)

Lauren Attwell, Newcastle, UK

I love training with GKR, especially the tournaments! GKR has changed my life and I always knew I was signing up to learn to punch, kick, defend etc but didn't realise I was also signing up to make new friends and learn a whole new way of life. Best decision I ever made!

Marcus Chandler, Sale, UK

My girls we're being bullied at school, I signed them up for karate to help them learn to defend themselves - they have grown so much from their training and its only been just over a year so far and their confidence has grown also which helped them deal with the bullying in a non violent way. Highly recommended for anyone looking to give their kids a boost!
