Tiska Karate teaches respect, self-defence and skills for life

At Tiska Karate, students are taught the importance of fitness and self-defence. From the outset, they learn that karate is to be used for defensive purposes and are reminded never to use their fighting skills outside the dojo (training hall) except in cases of extreme provocation, and even then, only in self-defence. During the first few weeks of their training, children learn the essentials of basic etiquette. Emphasis is placed on politeness, and respect for their fellow students, instructors and parents. They soon become aware that good manners consist of having the utmost consideration for others. Karate can help equip children with essentials skills for life! T: 07709 327 274 W:
