Will I get hurt?
Karate is not about getting hit. The emphasis of our Karate is on control and restraint. Light and controlled contact is the only contact encouraged. The club is about learning a Martial Art that includes etiquette and respect. Sparring is part of our Karate lessons but only once a student has the necessary skills to participate safely. Sparring instruction is given appropriate to the individual student’s grade. All lessons are taught with the emphasis on safety at SN Kempo Karate
