Regardless of the age group at the Fenland Karate Club, we pride ourselves on giving our students the proper balance of karate and physical fitness training (strength, stamina, agility, coordination, body conditioning, and more). Our adult program is designed to give you everything you would expect from a meaningful exposure to all aspects of martial arts training, as well as the body-improving results of the exercise.
The focus of our karate training is on unpacking the traditions of Shotokan karate; developing a solid understanding of technique; practising accurate implementation against defined body targets; learning how to combine grace, fluidity, speed, and mental peace with hard, focused target-specific karate techniques; and to provide a safe atmosphere and opportunity to increase proficiency through various partnership exchanges/drills.
But there are some common misperceptions that adults often carry about karate. While the obvious answer is that karate teaches you how to “defend yourself”, there are many benefits of studying karate as an adult that are often overlooked.
