Karate at School

We are offering kids classes at a variety of schools in the London area, in the form of after-school and lunchtime clubs. These classes are designed to fit in with the requirements of Key Stage Physical Education by helping them improve in areas such as hand-eye co-ordination, agility, balance and co-operation in physical activities. We also teach them skills that can be applied to their physical well-being later in life, such as stretching, as well as undertaking correct recovery techniques to prevent injury and passively increase mobility. We believe that the way in which we teach Karate at schools meets all of the requirements of Key Stages 1 and 2 Physical Education, particularly through our teaching of Kata (A set routine of movements) and Kumite (sparring), which teaches children to use a range of movement patterns  and tactics for attack and defence, both individually and as a team, within a controlled environment. Our club name, Tanren, can be interpreted as bettering oneself through repeated training and removal of imperfections; this is directly linked to the way in which teach, which focuses on the bettering of oneself both physically and mentally, within a fun, safe class.

We are currently only offering classes at Marie D'Orliac school in Fulham, but we hope to be teaching kids Karate at your school in the next academic year (Starting September 2018).
