Borstal Ninjas is a unique play-based martial arts activity programme which gives your child an active start in life. Our lively, fun sessions provide an introduction to some basic martial arts skills as well as encouraging the development of motor skills, physical movement, discipline and communication.
Children aged 4 to 7 are supported to reach different levels of achievement in a non–competitive environment. Students wear traditional black karate uniforms, with an opportunity to gain different colour belts and award badges for each new achievement level reach. Upon reaching the age of 8, students can transfer to our Family Class where they can continue their martial arts training.
Classes are on Tuesdays 5:15pm to 6pm and Fridays 4:30pm to 5:15pm. We have a "Pay On The Door" policy of £5 per lesson. Black Karate Gi’s are £15. Although gradings are free, we charge £2.50 for new belts. All Club Instructors are CRB checked and hold PII.
Our Family Karate Club is for children aged 7 and over, as well as mums & dads who are keen to train with their children. Single adults are also most welcome. All students at the Family Club are given the opportunity to learn Wado-ryu Karate to Black Belt level.
