Format of a class
Classes run to a similar format, starting with a targeted warm up. We then cover the three "Ks" of Kihon (basics covering stances, punches, kicks, strikes and blocks), Kata (set, choreographed moves performed against "imaginary" opponents), and Kumite (sparring). We have structured training programs for complete beginners or returning experienced martial artists.
