Just wanted to pass on my thanks for the way you teach and encourage your students. Louis' confidence has really developed over the last few years without him becoming cocky and I believe much of that is down to his karate training. Thanks again and keep up the good work.–Steve Hargrave - Parent

Oscar has come a long way since being taught by Sensei Ady, he has learnt discipline and control and loves his lessons. Ady gives great teaching in an outstanding environment.–Victoria Woodley - Parent

Having never been involved with Karate before, we can only comment on Matthew's experiences - now he has settled in he really enjoys himself and appears to be doing well. Thanks for Ady's patience at the start.–Andrew Binks - Parent

Being out of my comfort zone was made a much better place to be and I've grown in confidence thanks to Ady and his patience, understanding and truly inspirational way he teaches.–Louise Spencer - Adult student

Simply brilliant, great facilities and classes.–Chris Kirby - Parent

It was a very enjoyable session and something very different from what I have done in the past, I always felt in gyms I have trained at Karate has had a bad reputation of the just turn up attitude and you will get your belt.   I can see there is far more to it than just that, my son and myself found it challenging and it kept us thinking and interested throughout the class.–Joe - Parent and student
