Benefits Of Karate


Karate can be of great benefit to all who practice it on many levels - physically, emotionally, and spiritually. Listed below are just some of the benefits of Goju Ryu Karate

CONFIDENCE  - Karate improves general well-being and vitality whilst encouraging assertiveness and self-confidence.

CONCENTRATION - Karate requires mental activation and therefore helps to improve focus and concentration.  Karate also helps with co ordination as the movements learned in the dojo encourage the student to master their own body. 

FITNESS AND STAMINA - Karate is a good cardiovascular workout and provides excellent cross training for a variety of sports. Karate also encourages perfect posture as it relies on the core stabilisation and hence strong abdominal muscles.

SELF-DEFENCE SKILLS - Karate is an effective martial art for self-defence as well as being an exciting dynamic sport. Karate also improves muscle strength and speed enabling you to react faster in life threatening situations.

MOTIVATION - Coming to the classes each week and seeing your progress over a period of time can be extremely rewarding. As students are graded regularly their progress is formally recognised - and students feel proud of their achievements.

WELL BEING - Being fit and healthy and enjoying regular exercise helps to imrove the mood and can make you feel happier.

FUN - Karate can be fun for the whole family.
