The Warm Up

As many karate techniques require flexibility it is important to perform a warm up before training. This is done always at the beginning of the class with every student participating from beginner to black belt. The warm up is a traditional Japanese karate warm up and works on all the major areas in the body, developing flexibility and loosening out the muscles

After the warm up completes the class is broken up into smaller classes for more specific training.

  • Green to Purple
  • and Brown and Black Belts.
