Welcome to Karate Kids Hemel - the website of  Sasori Karate Dojo!

Karate classes for children aged 4 and up

 

Sasori Karate Dojo, Hemel Hempstead, is a Goju Ryu karate club that has been established in Hertfordshire for more than thirty years! Sasori specialises in the teaching of karate to children aged 4  and up based in Hemel Hempstead and the surrounding areas. We offer various levels of training from beginner to advanced, at two separate locations.  On a Monday night you can find us at Lime Walk Primary School and Thursdays we are at Apsley Community Centre.  Come on down to see us. You can be sure of a warm welcome!

The benefits of karate for children are numerous - we have even created a page on our website giving more information.  We believe that the Dojo Kun is a great way to live your life therefore we teach our children the following principles:

                • To strive for perfection of character
                • To be honest and sincere
                • To foster the spirit of perseverance
                • To be humble kind and polite
                • To refrain from violent behaviour

July 2016 Sasori Karate Grading 

December 2016 Grading

We have been extremely busy in December with all students working hard for the December grading. Well done to everyone who participated - it was a great grading we were very impressed to see all your hard work pay off. On December 15th we had the annual presentation evening where we saw demonstrations from junior, senior and adult students. We also saw the finals of the kata and kumite competition. The children enjoyed all aspects of the evening and we hope it gave you an idea of what the children have been working towards. We were very honored to have the Mayor and his wife attend the event. The mayor enjoyed the evening and made a very inspirational speech to the children.

We wish you all a very restful holiday and look forward to seeing you all again in January.

Karate is for everyone

Watch this video and see the concentration. It is really a humbling experience. There is a little introduction at the beginning but then the kata and application of the kata Bassai Dai will simply blow you away. Amazing. Dave Kengen started karate at 6 years old. What do you think?

 

 

We are pleased to say the number of students that have registered on the website is growing but a few members have still not filled in their details.  If you register on the website it will enable us to send you reminders about forthcoming activities as well as some tips to aid with your training. We can also try to notify you if the class is cancelled for any reason such as bad weather. There is a lot of information on this website that is only available to students who register such as the grading syllabus, picture gallery, and the black belts thesis which are all very interesting to read.. To register simply press the 'register' button at the top of this page and complete the form.  It helps us if you use a name that easily allows us to identify who you are!
