We run two classes every Wednesday evening at Nailsea School, both in the Dance Studio, accessible using the school's Community Entrance.

Our 6.30pm class caters for adult and children, from complete beginners upwards. Our 7.30pm class is for adults and children from 3rd kyu and above (brown and black belts). By teaching two separate classes we can tailor the content better. You will learn techniques and movements that are appropriate for your level of experience - so no one has to feel out of their depth.

For those looking for more training nearby, our sister club, Backwell Karate, also trains on Friday evenings and Sunday mornings, or you can visit any Bristol Karate Academy dojo and expect a warm welcome.

We cover a full traditional Karate syllabus, taking you through Karate basics, kata (traditional sequences or forms) and sparring, from controlled drills for beginners right through to free sparring for those more experienced.

Overall though, the emphasis is on your own personal development and helping you to reach your goals. That's why, when you start and at regular intervals, we'll ask you what you want to get out of your training at Nailsea Karate: whether it's reaching your next belt, competing in a tournament or simply keeping fit while learning a traditional martial art.
