My name is Nik or Master James in class I have been training in Martial Arts for seventeen years now. I commenced my training at a sports centre in Stretford in 1994 and I passed my first black belt dan test in 1998. Followed by my second and third dan. Family Karate Clubs are very much run as a family unit by myself and my partner and two children. I am also assisted by Miss Roy who help and make Family Karate Clubs the success it is today.Myself (Mr James ) and Miss Roy are certified martial arts instructors and also enhanced CRB checked.
The Clubs are based on fun for the children with the emphasis on the key concepts being respect, discipline, concentration and confidence building. Part of the Martial Arts Training Programme for the children consists of mat chats ensuring all children are aware of the following:
- Potential Stranger Dangers
- First Aid
- Fire Safety
- Health and Wellbeing
- Road Saftey
- many more!!!!!
I also encourage the parents of the children to join in the classes if they want to. Currently my students age ranges from 4 up to 65+.
Please note all members are encouraged to progress at their own pace in an environment where they are free from physical harm or emotional intimidation.
We aim to teach karate in a fun way whilst giving our students the confidence and support they need all the way to Black belt. The classes are open to anyone regardless of age or ability you don’t have to be superfit or super confident just turn up and try a couple of lessons.
