My son and I have been with Kenshukai since Oct 2010, my son was 5 years old when we started.
We have found it very friendly and sensible, we even got introduced to the different instructors, everyone was friendly and helpful.
My son likes to ask a lot of questions and no instructor ever rejected any of his questions regarding his karate, even after the lesson our Sensei will stay a bit longer to talk to us in case we require any help.
It has been really a pleasure joining Kenshukai as it has taught us confidence and self defence and the most important thing is believing in ourselves.
I started Karate because I thought, "Well, I'll give it a go" and now it's so fun I wish I could do it every day. I've learnt a lot and I like sparring. I learn self defence and other great things. The things I like the most are kicks, strikes and stances.
Doing karate has brought me closer to my son, we have developed a shared interest and it has boosted his confidence to be able to teach me when I am going wrong.
Karate has helped me maintain my all round fitness by stimulating both my body and my brain.
Kenshukai is like a family, we help each other to develop and progress, we share each other's success and support in times of struggle.
Karate has given me the confidence to realise that there is no such thing as a stupid question...unless you ask, you will never know.
Kenshukai helped me to realise that it is never too late to learn new skills and strive for new ambitions...I will reach my black belt before I am 50!!
In the dojo, there is nowhere to hide - your flaws are exposed; you suffer pain and embarrassment; you are stripped to the base and then if you will it and you stay the course, you are built up again, stronger and more complete, as you grow into a Karateka.
