Karate is a self-defence art. It is also a method of physical and mental conditioning.
Karate training will teach physical skills which you can retain for a lifetime, as well as ways of thinking and dealing with everyday problems.
The Style of Karate we teach at South Bucks Karate is based on both Kenpo and Wado Ryu Karate. The style features unusually fast hand and foot combinations intended for practical self-defence. Karate exercises are varied, easy to perform, and good for conditioning.

Learning and practicing Karate is relaxing and a very enjoyable fitness exercise.
The training begins simply with learning to loosen up by stretching properly. It progresses at the level you feel comfortable with.
Karate practice is superb for body conditioning. You don't need any special or expensive equipment; you can practice Karate at your convenience, in your home or at our Club. Unlike most sports it can be practiced throughout the year, without the need for a constant partner. Students find that Karate movements develop coordination, increased strength, and flexibility.
As with most arts, there is a wealth of knowledge that can be mastered, but it is easy to start learning and the benefits become apparent immediately. We try to make the learning experience both pleasant and fun and you should enjoy coming to the DoJo, whether to work with the instructors or to combine exercise with socializing.
