Grading requirements and examinations ensure you learn the foundation techniques (kihon) needed to achieve shodan (first degree black belt) is achievable within 3 years if you train regularly. Senior grades are awarded in the traditional manner which is on an individual basis.

How do you test effectiveness? We use scenario based training in a range of natural and urban settings and practice randori in which two or more practitioners ‘play’ and ‘test’ each other in a free form use of skill and technique with due attention to safety and taking into account different skill levels.

Do you have beginner classes? Occasionally - but usually beginners may attend any class and are given specific exercises or a more basic version of what is being taught in the class.

Do I need to be fit to start? No! Just start.

Will I get fit? Yes, but...conditions apply! Our training drills, games  and exercises are based on foundation techniques to ensure you get a sweat up. With regular training  you will develop your flexibility, stamina and endurance. However, if you only do 1-2 classes  a week and no other exercise you will need to do additional home training to build and maintain fitness.
