MEET OUR COACHES
Who are Chelmsford
Our Legacy: A Not-for-Profit TraditionChelmsford Karate Club was founded on the principle that the art of karate should be accessible to all, regardless of financial constraints. As a not-for-profit organization, our primary focus has always been our members and the community we serve. This commitment has allowed us to uphold our mission of making traditional Okinawan Goju Ryu accessible and affordable to everyone, paving the way for a more inclusive and harmonious Chelmsford.
Physical Fitness: Building Strong Bodies and MindsAt Chelmsford Karate Club, we believe in the holistic development of our members. Our instructors, with their extensive knowledge and experience in Okinawan Goju Ryu, not only train students in the art of self-defense but also encourage them to embrace physical fitness as a way of life. We offer a safe and welcoming environment for individuals of all ages and abilities to embark on a journey towards better health, strength, and resilience.
Mental Discipline: Cultivating Character and ResilienceKarate is not just about physical strength; it is about mental fortitude. Our club is committed to instilling discipline, focus, and determination in our members. Through rigorous training and unwavering support, we help individuals build not only self-defense skills but also the mental discipline to navigate life’s challenges with grace and confidence.
Community: The Heart of Chelmsford Karate ClubThe heart and soul of Chelmsford Karate lie in its strong sense of community. We are more than a club; we are a family. Our members share in each other’s triumphs, setbacks, and personal growth. The friendships forged within our dojo extend beyond the training floor, creating a powerful and enduring support network. We are united by a common goal: to empower one another to become the best versions of ourselves.
WHAT THEY SAY ABOUT US
I always walk out the doors with a smile on my face”
WHAT WE DO AND WHO WE ARE?
At Chelmsford Karate, we believe that it is important to learn Self Defence concepts so that you can always be prepared to defend yourself in an unknown situation.
Strength & Conditioning
Conditioning the body and mind is an important part of karate and any Martial Arts. Strengthening the body so that it can perform effectively is great for fitness and knowing what it’s like to hit or take a blow prepares you against an attacker.
Kata & Bunkai
Kata strings techniques together so you can practice them on your own. They are more than just a sequence of moves and unlike some clubs we also analyse and practice the meaning of the moves (Bunkai)
We perform both structured sparring and free sparring to help build confidence in a combat situation and practice the techniques learnt in class.
