What Can You Expect from Karate Training in Blackburn?

Karate is a discipline with various different aspects, including Basics, Forms and Sparring. Professional Karate training here at Family Martial Arts Centre will take you through these components.

  1. Basics: Technique is key to Karate and we will teach you the basics, including the different strikes, blocks, kicks, stances and movements that are central to this martial art. Learning these is a great way to understand how body movements can generate power, as well as building your confidence.
  2. Forms: Movement patterns are the second aspect to learn, and Kata will focus on these movements that are important for the artistic form of karate. These patterns not only increase strength, balance, agility and coordination, they also promote self defence principles too.
  3. Sparring: is the accumulation of these techniques, and involves sparring with a partner in a slow and controlled teaching environment. Initially, the techniques used will be predetermined, but you will progress to free Kumite, once your skills have developed.

How Quickly Will You See Results From Karate?

Karate training can bring results in a variety of different areas. From weight loss to personal achievement goals, different people approach Karate in different ways.

In just a few sessions many people can identify a difference in physical fitness, health, mental wellbeing, self esteem, and confidence. This confidence will only improve alongside your technical development. 

For people aiming for an improvement in concentration, planning and organisational skills, and overall mental health, just a few sessions of Karate can result in notable progress. That’s why so many children and adults with ADHD take up this martial art. 

If you are aiming to achieve a Blackbelt ranking in Karate, this is something we can help you achieve, here at Family Martial Arts Centre. However, the main objective of Karate is to perfect the art form itself, and to strive for personal improvement, leading to self perfection. This is why Karate is seen as a way of life, and not just a martial art.
