Our Frequently Asked Questions
As a guide we take children from the age of six. We can however take children younger, please speak with one of the instructors who can better advise.
The classes are open to all levels of fitness so you can take them at your own pace. Karate mentality promotes health and fitness and the warm-ups and training will help increase and maintain a good fitness level.
Something loose and comfortable is advised such as Tracksuit bottoms/shorts and t-shirt and bring along a bottle of Water
We train safely and practice with care and control but accidents occasionally happen. Knocks may occur but the more you train the more experience you gain and knocks are less likely.
The hardest thing to do is walk through the door! You never know if you'll enjoy something until you have tried it. There's a first time for everyone, the first lesson is always free. You've nothing to lose!
We run separate classes for juniors and adults. If your child is between the Age of 6 and 13 they should attend the Juniors class. On Wednesdays North Avenue runs a beginners class for its Junior students. If your child is new to Karate attending this class is recommended. If you have any concerns or questions please do not hesitate to contact us.
