The club has members ranging from beginner level to 2nd Dan (Nidan) Black Belt. Members come from a broad range of professional and social backgrounds. Students range from 4 years old, through to adults. All classes are mixed together, creating a relaxed, family-like atmosphere.
Gradings are held regularly throughout the year, where students take an exam to achieve their next grade. For many young students this promotes self-confidence and a sense of achievement and motivation.
Additionally, students participate in courses run by Sensei Sahota and take part in an annual TISKA National Competition, giving students the opportunity to demonstrate the skills they have learnt and developed through their training.
WHY NOT ENROL AS A FAMILY…
TISKA Karate is something that parents and their children can do together. There are many examples where parents and there children have gone all the way to black belt together and take the belt test on the same day. I always encourage parents to give it a go, particularly those who generously give their time to bring their children along, and find themselves sitting through classes week after week kicking no more than their feet.Classes in Northwood
