Senior gades and club instructors want to encourage the juniors to train more regularly than just once per week on a regular basis.
Sports Science research shows that training twice a week is 3 x better than once per week.
Three times per week is 5 x better than once per week.
Take advantage of the new club cost strategy to encourage frequent training:
The minimum age we take is eight years old, training for juniors and
beginners is a mixed class on Saturdays at 10:30 am and Wednesdays 6 p.m. to 7 p.m.
The main traiining site is at the Wrekin College Sports Hall, Sutherland Road, Constitution Hill,
Wellington, Shropshire UK, TF1 3BH. On Mondays & Wednesdays senior grades and adults (Brown and Black belts) train at the Telford College of Arts and Technology (TCAT) Haybridge Road Wellington

New members are very welcome, basic instruction for beginners is carried out in the Saturday morning sessions. Children and Adults are catered for separately.
Experienced and 'lapsed' Karataka are very welcome, please introduce yourself to Tony Atherden who will organise a program of gradual re-introduction.
The club is affilitated to the Shotokan Karate International Federation, headed up by kancho Hirokazu Kanazawa 10th Dan; we follow their training syllabus.
Lessons include a warm up and basic karate techniques to start with followed by appropriate training for the differing grades;we have two or three very short breaks, so please bring suitable still drinks preferably in sports bottles. Wrekin College has good facilities and showers are available after training. Approximately 3 to 4 chances to grade per year are available and usually twice per year the opportunity to grade with Kanazawa himself is presented.
