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

2017  karate grading 

December 2018 Grading

We have been extremely busy in December with all students working hard for the December grading. Well done to everyone who participated.

Meanwhile behind the scenes our very own Sensei Marie has been working hard for her own grading showing that karate is a journey that is never complete. Many years after starting her journey Sensei Marie still practices all elements of our Dojo Kun. 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. For those of us that have the honour of knowing Sensei Marie we know she has lived her life by these rules - she is passionate about spreading the word of karate and practices what she preaches. She has currently been examined by some leading karate examiners and has achieved the honour of being graded as 5th Dan. Senei Marie is pictured below with her certificate and examiners Shihan Chris Green and Shihan Steve Duffy. 

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!
