Personal fitness

Goju Ryu Karate – a traditional Okinawan Martial Art is not just a form of self defense. It is a discipline that increases personal stamina and fitness.

A frequent concern for beginners is will they be fit enough to attend and live through a session? The answer is not to worry about it – every black belt struggled through their first training session just like you will – it is all part of the learning process.

The first thing to note is you will never be asked to do more than you feel you are capable of.

The second point of interest is within a few months you will be surprised at how just one training session a week can transform the way you feel about yourself, and the number of press–ups you can do.
