Amongst other things, most karate sessions include some warm up exercises and training drills.
Each class begins with a period of gentle stretching exercises to help the body to loosen up and prepare for sudden fast movements that might otherwise cause injury.
Karate practice is divided into three parts: kihon (basics),kata (forms), and kumite(sparring). There are training drills for each of these which are sometimes practiced alone or with a partner. Training alone can help us to concentrate on the way we perform a particular movement. Practicing with a partner can teach us when and where a technique is performed.
We are fortunate to have mats and matted areas for ground work
