We are delighted to welcome Adults to Black Panther Karate as new Students.

We like to give our students the best possible chance to succeed and make a point of believing in them. Because of this we are known as "the friendly family club".
Do you want to learn one of the most exciting Martial Arts in the world, which includes - Shotokan Karate, "Street style" Self Defence and some Jujitsu. Our adults and karate kids can grade up to and including black belt in our Dojo's.
It is also a wonderful way to "Keep Fit".
Our style of karate has all the benefits of kickboxing and Taekwondo with none of the dangers, as we use light contact only. You won't be disappointed if you join us. We have a lot of students who come to us from other clubs and they are surprised at the high level of our tuition.Karate for Adults and all the family - Over 30 years at the Top!
One of the reasons that the Black Panther Karate is so good for adults and children is because unlike most other forms of exercise the brain is exercised at the same time as the body. Thinking while you exercise keeps the brain alert and fit.
The MARTIAL ARTS moves that are learned at Black Panther Karate are imprinted in the mind by practicing over and over again. Not only does this exercise both the body and the mind but because the moves become "second nature" you will respond to surprise attacks in the street.
This also keeps the mind and the body in good condition for old age. Many people, both men and women, continue training in this style of martial art well into their sixties, seventies and even eighties, practicing at a pace suitable to them.
If you have trained in karate when you were younger (at BPK or other karate club) and you would like to get back to training contact Shihan Christine Alleyn 5th Dan Chief Instructor BPK. Shihan Christine being of mature years herself understands the need to complete something later in life that was started at a younger age and will do all she can to help.
Black Panther Karate have many black belts who have returned to training in later life after a long lay-off, some gaining their black belts in their fifties and sixties. They also have a number of girls and boys who obtained their black belts in their teens and one at the tender age of eleven.
The fee represents the cost for the whole three/four-week course (one lesson each week) and 4 week course includes a free lesson at the level you wish to train (beginners, intermediate and advanced). The membership during this time is also free.
You are also able to choose the day and the location that suits best.
If you are a parent and interested to offer your child a karate training, too, you can optimize your time by attending our 'family classes',over 7 years only where you can train along with your child for three/four weeks. But please keep in mind that the session with children will be only one hour long, as generally that represents the upper limit of their attention span.
Intermediate students are taught separately from the beginners to start. Also the level of instructions is tailored to student's growing interest.We recognize previous gradings with a Licence.
