C.E.S.K.A. Karate for the whole family

Teaching children

CESKA offers a children’s program for children ages 6 and above. As with our adult karate classes, the emphasis is on traditional karate skills, including blocks, punches strikes and kicks performed while in various karate stances.

At our main open clubs like (Brackley/ Buckingham / Towcester) children train in the same class as adults, obviously we always pair up children with children in kumite (sparring) within the lessons. We see better karate development with children learning alongside adults and this makes the classes very family friendly. Many parents can train knowing their children are in the same class as them, safe and enjoying their class

The open classes have become very successful and are adopted in many karate associations

In ou closed school classes (like Beachborough and Winchester House) the classes only have the school pupils in the class.

Japanese terminology (wording) is slowly introduced in the classes so its fun for them learning the wording.

All students wear the traditional white gi (uniform) and their level of personal advancement is indicated by the colour belt they wear during class. However, our focus is on student self-development rather than ranking, and children are encouraged to advance at their own pace.

In a typical class, children do warm-up exercises, basic karate blocks, punches and kicks. As they become more confident with the basics, students will learn kata (a prearranged series of movements). Our instructors always ensure that the children have fun while learning and the children learn quickly in an enjoyable fast paced environment.

Children benefit significantly from karate training and in particular will benefit in the following ways:

Develop their self-confidence
Enjoy regular exercise in a friendly, encouraging environment
Develop their self-discipline
Improve their strength and co-ordination

Teaching adults

Adults in karate are looked at from the age of 14 yrs So we encourage the young adults to train and develop their karate skills alongside over 18yr olds especially in our advanced classes (Brown & Black Belt Class)

Our aim in CESKA is to ensure all classes from reception classes to our mixed children & adult classes are interesting and enjoyable. We all learn when in an enjoyable and safe environment.

We welcome all to come along, children women and men. No martial arts experience to experienced to those with experience years ago. Come along and join CESKA and enjoy a martial art experience.

Through the practice of karate you will enhance all areas of your life with greater self-confidence, self-esteem and physical conditioning.
