What if I don't feel confident enough?
We foster a friendly atmosphere, with very little formality. Our instructors encourage all students to train correctly and will only ever ask students to do what they're comfortable doing.
Karate can help develop self-confidence and a sense of belonging. The WSKU dojo is a place where all are welcome and are invited to develop spirit, strength and character.
How much does my size or weight matter when training karate?
Karate can be practised by people of all shapes and sizes. The most senior and revered karateka such as Shirai, Kase, Asai, Ochi sensei to name a few, have demonstrated that mastery of this martial art isn't restricted to one particular build.
Does karate improve confidence and self control?
Confidence will come from being around other karateka, training with the senior dan grades and embracing the martial nature of karate. All our training is about taking instruction and implementing a fighting art, with control. That control keeps everyone safe, sharpens your skills as a fighter and by extension cultivates self-control.
