What parents say about our classes
London school of Karate has helped with my daughters confidence, flexibility and fitness. It is supportive and the teachers always want the best for your child. There’s a real sense of friendship and nurturing as well as training and dedication to helping them reach their full potential.
I can't recommend this school highly enough.
Mother of Courtney aged 8
Amazing classes. My child has gone from strength to strength over the last 2 years showing not only confidence and agility but also a great sense of mindfulness.
In my opinion these classes are an essential life skill in self defence.
Mother of Bailey, aged 7
My older son has attended Karate classes with Joel for several years and my younger son just started in December. Both of them love it! London School of Karate teaches physical strength and agility but also mindfulness and respect to others.
I highly recommend it!
