My son (5) has just completed his yellow tip grading. It has been one of our proudest moments as parents, seeing our son beaming with joy on his achievement. He runs into class every week and skips out of it. As parents, we love to see its not just about the skills of karate but the values and life lessons taught to the kids in each class. The word of the week has been teaching my son great values as a person and something I would encourage in him in becoming the best version of himself…
I enrolled my son in elite karate academy in April after many failed attempts at different sports and activities and I am glad to say he absolutely loves it. I have seen a huge difference in his confidence levels and physical health, he has even been discharged from physiotherapy as his mobility and balance has improved so much. Gareth is an amazing teacher and the kids really respect him. I would highly recommend enrolling your child here if you are thinking about starting them in an activity..
Samvit has been training with Elite academy for more than a year and he absolutely loves it. He constantly looks forward to the days he has classes and always eager to learn. I see a huge difference since he joined the club. Training has boosted his confidence and disciplined. Sammy gives utmost importance to the 12 personality development words that they train on and practices them everyday scenarios. Thank you Sensei Gareth for shaping his personality.
My son looks forward to going to every single training session here. He is 7 and is autistic and he has fit in straight away. His fitness and concentration have improved, and I can only see it getting better. We will be attending for a long time to come.
Children growing up in today’s world can be very daunting for both children and parents. To find a place where all are welcomed, respected and taught a life skill while building confidence in a child is so precious. A very big thank you to Sensei Gareth and Elite Karate Academy for given my son the belief in himself to continue to train and learn with you. I especially love listening to the kids responses when doing words of the week. Cannot recommend highly enough.
Would highly recommend the club! If someone had of told me a few years ago that my son would be willing to walk into a karate dojo full of new people and noises and rules I would have laughed at them.For a time we couldn’t get Luke to even look at a person he didn’t know. We trialed Elite Karate Academy thinking it would just be a day out for him but we can’t believe how wrong we were. He has been brought to life at this club and now oozes confidence and self control we could have only dreamed of.Seeing him on the floor with his classmates at the expo was amazing and we are so grateful to the club and to Sensei Gareth
My daughter has been attending Elite Karate Academy for years now and she loves it! Now a brown belt she is hoping to be one of the youngest black belts in the academy in a few years. Sensei makes training fun and engaging and I’ve found my daughters confidence has grown. There’s no pressure on the kids to grade if they don’t feel ready and sensei listens to the students. Keep up the great work sensei! From Zoë and Joanna
