what They’re Saying

Client Testimonials

Liz began training in Glenrothes in 2010, joining her son and husband who were already training.

“I eventually decided to take the plunge and give it a try after a bit of nagging from my family. I can honestly say I’ve never looked back – I was hooked after the first few classes. It has done wonders for my confidence, and I get a huge psychological benefit from training in such a positive atmosphere. Being able to train alongside my family is a real bonus too. My fitness levels have rocketed, and the core strength I’ve developed has made great improvements to a back problem I’d suffered with for years. I’d recommend it to anyone.”


Drew began training in 2008, aged 5. His mum and dad train too, and he’s been to lots of training camps and even visited Dojos in Canada and the USA! Here’s what he wrote about Karate-do.

“I enjoy karate because it helps me to defend myself and it keeps me fit. It helps me get smarter because it uses my brain. It’s a bit of a challenge but that means it is fun. My favourite thing is basics like kicks and punches but I really like hold downs. I really think sometimes if I will get to a Black Belt? I hope I will do it anyway.”


Abbi began training in 2012. She has worked really hard and already had an opportunity to train with World Chief Instructor, Sensei Nakamura, when he visited Scotland.

“I am 9 years old and I have been training in the martial art of Karate for 1 year. During this short time, I have progressed from white belt to red/black and enjoyed every minute of this experience and journey towards black belt excellence. I train twice a week and practice at home. My strength and speed has increased, but most noticeable is my flexibility. I look forward to going to Karate, but most of all I have fun.”
