We offer Karate and Jui-Jitsu martial art instruction.
Deschamps Martial Arts believes that karate is a complete fighting system. Shotokan kata can be analysed to create self defence combinations that include striking, grappling, joint locks, pressure points and throws. To add to the complexity and application base, Chito-ryu kata are also incorporated for the adult classes.
Adult: Focus is on the Shotokan style, with elements of Chito-Ryu incorporated. Applications (Oyo) for real-world scenarios based on kata bunkai develop self-confidence and ability to respond appropriately to a variety of scenarios, not all related to self defence. Emphasis is on kata, applications and techniques largely found in Shotokan teachings.
Children: Shotokan karate is taught to children, classes are for those from 6 to 15 years of age, depending on physical attributes and skills. Techniques, Kata and self defence appropriate for this age group assist in the development of confidence, discipline and self control.
Little Dragons: For many, the first teacher is the instructor in a Little Dragons class! Focus is on fun, using games and imagery to impart basic techniques and kate to those aged 3 to 5 years of age. Parents are encouraged to join in with the class, but few can keep up!
