Posted on behalf of Yamato Damashii Karate Club

Yamato Damashii is a family-run Dartford-based karate club who teach traditional wado-ryu karate, they run engaging classes and are very good at helping new members to integrate into the club and feel welcome. Some children are very shy in the beginning, but the instructors work with them and help them to grow in confidence and become part of the group, we’d say that this is more than just a karate club, it’s more like a big, friendly family.

Karate can benefit everyone, young, old, men and women and it’s a fun way to get fit and learn a valuable new skill, you or your children will learn respect, become more disciplined, focused, self-confident, improve concentration and make new friends, all these things can help throughout life.  

Both kids and adults can learn in a fun environment and each individual can develop their body and mind, gradually and naturally and they may not even realise their own progress until they look back and see just how far they have come.

Yamato Damashii is affiliated with NAKMAS, an independent martial arts governing body and have been awarded Covid Safe status. The instructors are licensed, insured and DBS checked. All the instructors were once white belts and have progressed through many years of training and now happily pass their experience and knowledge onto others.

Classes are held every Wednesday evening at the Leigh Academy and at Becket Sport Centre every Saturday morning and your first lesson is free. For further information, see their website, Facebook page, Twitter or drop them an email.
