me personally welcome you to Elite Karate...
In joining the Club you
will be embarking on a journey into modern
martial arts, drawing on both traditional and
contemporary techniques from Thai &
Kickboxing to traditional Karate styles,
resulting in a practical and effective
Like most things in life,
I believe martial arts should progress. After
all, if you bought a new car or computer, you
would expect it to perform better than your
old one, because the new design will be based
on things learned from the previous versions.
In this respect, martial arts are no
different, things are continually learned and
improvements can always be made, and
practitioners and instructors alike should recognize
the need to update their art.
It is easy to fall into the trap of
continually wanting to learn new techniques
but forgetting to update what is already
known. You should look at everything you see
and everything you are taught, when you find
something that works better than what you are
already using then keep it and adapt it to
suit you personally. Just like the designers
who strive to update and build better cars and
computers, you should always strive to update
I believe that martial arts instructors should
take a lesson from these designers and should
always be trying to update their teachings and
adapt them to suit each of their students'
personal needs. After all, people come in all
sorts of different shapes, sizes and
abilities. The instructor's priority, must
always be, to equip. them with a practical
range of techniques that can be combined into
a personal but effective fighting system. Only
then will the students begin to gain
confidence in their own abilities.
You will also be making a commitment, both to
yourself and to the Club. A commitment to
devote time and effort to your physical and
mental development, helping you to become
fitter, more confident and more aware of your
surroundings. Above all, you will be
instructed in a code of disciplined conduct.
The information contained in our site, will
provide you with a basic outline of our Club.
Everyone at Elite Karate would be glad to see
you join us on what is, a long and rewarding
