Parents & Carers, We know, we know that if you look at any town or village you will find many activities and clubs for your child, and sometimes more than one martial arts club.
Everyone will have an opinion, this club is better than that club etc, but don't you owe it to your child to find out for yourself? At Nishikan Martial Arts we know that teaching your child is a partnership between you and us. We know that martial arts will give your child the best start in life, allowing them to socialise with their new classmates. We know that training with us will keep them focused on all of their teachers during classes. Our Little Samurai programme has been developed by martial artists with over 70 years experience between them. Let us help you equip your child for success in the real world.
Nishikan Martial Arts - The Reality Balance!
We are here to support you in anyway we can, from beginner to black belt, we'll make the journey with you.
All of our instructors are qualified experienced black belts with many years experience. Parents are most welcome to watch the session.
Any age, any fitness, our new syllabus is flexible and can be tailored to suit the individual, no more square pegs and round holes!
In most cases 4 years old, this does depend on the instructor.
Whilst we would love you to, the trial is no obligation.
We are committed to making our training and environment as safe as we can. We were one of the first clubs in the area to gain Sport England's 'Safeguarding Code in Martial Arts' Kitemark.
No previous experience is necessary. If they have done martial arts before and taken any gradings we will of course take this into account and place them at a suitable point in our curriculum, we do not make students start again.
Any suitable clothing to perform exercise in, tracksuit bottoms and a t-shirt work really well. Normal training is carried out in bare feet.
Absolutely, you are more than welcome to watch. You may find you want to join in!
Nishikan Martial Arts fully supports the Sport England initiative 'Safeguarding Code in Martial Arts' which we gained in June 2019. Each year the association will be subjected to an annual health check. Parents and Students can find Safeguarding information on the members only portal.
Nishikan Martial Arts has recently partnered with 'This Girl Can' and has held a very successful Ladies Only Session.
It is hoped that this will be the first of many more sessions. All of our other sessions are suitable for all genders.
Children develop their social interaction skills, which are important when learning to work as part of a team
Not only will the training help fitness but also balance, co-ordination and reflexes.
Building healthy habits at a young age will help them avoid an unhealthy lifestyle later in life.
The training is first class, Paul really brings the moves to life so that you can really understand them and how they all fit together for your kata. The new syllabus is great and really allows you to integrate the moves as karate should be, helping to gain a better understanding in application. The Honbu has a great team spirit,and feels just a great big family. The seniors really encourage and inspire the more intermediate levels and it is a pleasure to be part of the team.
