Benefits of Karate
Vertical Line

Karate can be a highly beneficial activity for anyone to take-up; although it is an excellent form of self-defence, it’s not just for people who want to get a black belt!

Our Karate classes in Penzance and Pool (between Camborne and Redruth) in Cornwall offer numerous life-changing benefits including:

For example, improved self-confidence and self-esteem, improved anger-management, improved discipline and self-control, improved concentration and memory, improved motivation, a feeling of empowerment, etc.

Ethical and Moral Benefits

Karate cultivates excellent character - especially important for children and young people - by promoting respect, courtesy, good-manners, kindness, consideration, compassion, courage and loyalty.

Social Benefits

Coming to Karate classes is an excellent way to make new friends, develop social skills, develop leadership and team-building skills, etc.


Perhaps most importantly though, Karate is great fun! Is there any aspect of Karate that you or your child wouldn’t benefit from?
