The self-defence lessons that we run at our Birkenhead venue are based on the Shito-ryu style of Karate, which is one of the four most popular styles of karate practised. The style has its basis in ‘real world’ fighting which can be a close quarter confrontation which will require speed of action and movement. With the Shito-ryu style, techniques such as blocking, are very direct and accurate with no unnecessary movement. Unnecessary movement adds to time, and time is something that you haven’t got much of in a fight. We would always advocate that you walk or run away from a potential fight situation. There is always the risk of injury. However, in a situation where confrontation is inevitable, we can help you to be better prepared.
Our self-defence lessons are held on Monday and Wednesday evenings at the Wirral Tennis & Sports Centre, Valley Rd, Birkenhead. We welcome all ages from four years old upwards.
Our head instructor is Steve Bolland who is a 6th Dan Black belt in Shito-ryu karate. He is also highly experienced in teaching self-defence techniques. The club is highly professional and is affiliated to the English Karate Federation which governs English karate.
