The self-defence lessons that we provide are based on our Shito-ryu style of karate which, as a style, has its grounding in potential ‘real world’ fighting situations. The techniques that we use, such as blocking, are very direct with no unnecessary additional movement. They are made even more effective because of this; any unnecessary movement adds time. Time is something that you normally don’t much of in a fight.
If confronted with a threatening situation, our advice would always be to walk or run away. The risk of injury is always too real. However, our classes will prepare you for scenario’s where confrontation cannot be avoided. We teach techniques for defending against knife and bottle attack, for example, as well as throwing techniques. They are really useful in scenarios where self-defence is a requirement.
Our Chester self-defence and karate classes are held at the Firs School on Newton Lane on a Thursday evening. All sessions are run by our chief instructor Steve Bolland who is a 6th Dan Black belt in Shito-ryu karate and highly experienced in teaching self-defence techniques. The club is highly professional and is affiliated to the English Karate Federation which governs English karate.
Even more importantly, the sessions are made to be fun and engaging, as well as being respectful to karate traditions.
You are welcome to sample a free session at our Chester venue, with no obligation. Just call us on 07855 487026 or fill in the contact form, come in some loose clothing such as a t-shirt and tracksuit, and let’s have fun!
