The Junior classes are structured to be fun while instilling the traditional values of discipline and respect for others. The children are encouraged to improve but always at their own pace. Achievements are rewarded but not guaranteed. This ensures that the child’s performance is something that they can be truly proud of.

The Senior class includes TAE-BO, Self Defence, Sparring and Karate.
TaeBo is a form of cardiovascular exercise popularized in the late 1980s by Billy Blanks.
This form of fitness regimen is fun and energizing as it is an intense workout that incorporates kicks from kickboxing, choreography and electronic music from hip hop, forceful punches from self-defense and martial arts, stretching and holds from yoga, and constant movement from aerobics.

The Club is now on four days a week:

Monday, Wednesday and Thursday's.
Junior Classes 7 - 8
Senior Classes 8 - 9.30

Junior Classes 10 - 11
Senior Classes 11 – 1.00
