"I have 3 children who train at Kennedys Karate. My oldest began when he was 6, and is now 13. When the idea of karate first came up, I was quite anxious that it might encourage my kids to be ‘aggressive’ and teach them to solve conflict with physical force. I went to watch a kids class at Kennedys Karate, and was pleasantly surprised at the quality and perspective of the instruction the children received. The children understand they are only to use the techniques they learn in self-defense situations and they are taught to respect the knowledge they are gaining. Confidence, co-ordination, and self-defense skills are just some of the benefits my children have received from their training. It got to the point that my husband and I decided we may as well start training in the adults class and make it a ‘family thing’!! I feel confident that, should my children ever be in a situation where they will need to defend themselves, they will have an idea of how to do that. We have a 3 ˝ yr old granddaughter, who is already trying to learn the punch routine and can’t wait till she is old enough to join the class!!"

"As parents we have found Kennedy Karate classes to be excellent for our 5yr old son in so many ways - not just physically but mentally and emotionally too. Kennedy Karate advocates respect, understanding of other's needs, self discipline,self control and responsibility for oneself as well as the group. The instruction is excellent and encourages individuals to achieve their potential. Students develop skill, strength, flexibility and all round fitness and are encouraged to take grades to reward them for their efforts and standards of achievement. The motivation is excellent and before long students become 'self-motivating' which in itself motivates others. My son is proud of his achievements and is demonstrating the qualities outlined above already after being with the group for 4 months. We recommend Kennedy karate to anyone. "
