Challenge yourself and learn Martial Arts as a family
As a family focussed Martial Arts club, we think we have a good understanding of the needs of parents and the needs of the children we teach Martial Arts to.
We would like you to be a part of your child’s learning as your support is vital to their success. Therefore, we arrange regular open weeks for the children’s classes where you join in and a take a Family Martial Arts class together with your child, so that you can understand what you can do to help them at home and what it is they do in their Martial Arts training. Additionally, when the members, both children and adults are ready to attempt their next grade, we encourage parents, children and siblings to attend to provide moral support and encouragement to the person grading and to help all our Basingstoke students to enhance their Black Belt attitude.
The ultimate in parental encouragement is for you to take on the challenge yourself and learn Martial Arts as a family, alongside your child and other younger family members. Kids and Adults both benefit from quality time spent together and children especially love the opportunity to beat the grownups at something and teach them a thing or two!
With this in mind, we have a special spot in our timetable for family only classes, allowing you to all train, learn and have fun together. So show your children how proud you are of them and get involved today.
What do we teach in our family Martial Arts classes?
As parents ourselves and as qualified Martial Arts Instructors, we have a very clear idea as to what is suitable to learn in our family classes. Some of the things we teach in an adult only class are not appropriate to teach to youngsters. This is due to either the development of their bodies or because of the nature of the technique itself. We ensure that what we teach is appropriate both in terms of safety and content for the Martial Arts class for the family.

Focussing on Fun
In our family classes the focus is on fun exercise. Whilst of course, learning to become exponents of Karate / Judo / Kung Fu to reach the coveted Black Belt. Both children and adults practise the same technique. We understand that due to age (both old and young) people can have some physical limitations, so we work with them individually to tailor their Martial Arts techniques to suit their own body.
We play games that are designed to build teamwork in the class and to get people a little competitive. The kids (including the slightly older ones) have a great time with the games as they are an excellent way to get fit and practice some of the skills and principles of the Martial Arts that we teach. We have to say that we think the adults enjoy the ‘games’ just as much as the children do, if not more so.
Both children and adults enjoy using our equipment.
We provide separate sets that are suitable for each group to use. Students work individually on some equipment and together with a partner on others. This is not only a great way for adults to stay fit, it also helps the children to develop their skills both in a fun and engaging way.
Both adults and children are welcome to attend our other age specific Martial Arts classes that we provide to learn more about Judo, Karate, Tai Chi, Kickboxing or Kung Fu. Come and try a free taster Family Martial Arts class with us, close to Basingstoke town centre.
