At SNW Karate, we teach the Shito-ryu style of karate which is a highly effective form of self-defence. This style of karate is ‘real world’ karate; 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. A some ‘real world’ fighting happens at close range too and again the Shito-ryu style is tailored for close range scenarios.
In the process of leaning the style, we will practice techniques for defending against and even disarming a knife attacker, and well as effective methods of taking down and grappling with an attacker. We also teach the fact that the best form of self-defence is to avoid and even run away from a potentially dangerous situation rather than fight because the potential for injury of some sort is always high if you engage in a fight situation.
