Can I just turn up?

Yes! Please come along and watch or join in

What should I wear?

If you don't yet have a dogi (white karate suit) then please wear loose tracksuit bottoms and a t-shirt or whatever you would wear to the gym.

Am I going to get punched or kicked?

The kumite (sparring with a partner) aspect of karate is built up slowly once you have passed the first two belts so you will be safe for a while ;) We teach all belts to show the correct control so that if with a partner if and contact is made the technique is 'pulled' so not executed with full power and until this can be achieved no contact is made.
