Successful grading at Worle

KARATE is one of few things that requires patience and does not come instantly at the touch of a button. It has changed little over the centuries and is ideal for all to learn the values of patience and hard work.

Again St Marks School in Worle was the venue for Weston Karate Club's last grading of the year.

December is usually the club's largest grading of the year due to few students taking holidays and less distractions as the dark nights arrive.

Connor Neale, aged 11 has showed amazing patience over the years. He started Karate at the age of seven and he first graded in 2006.

He initially struggled with the concentration and discipline required, so was not allowed to grade for some time. Surprisingly he did not give it up and with the support of his parents continued to train.

Last Saturday he finally did grade after missing six gradings (21 months). Many congratulations, Connor keep up the good work.

Karate is an excellent self-disciplined activity for anyone to learn self defence skills while exercising. It is especially beneficial for children lacking in confidence and co-ordination. Many of our students' parents have applauded the almost instantly visible improvements in their children.

Next year the club will be celebrating its 25th year in Weston.

Anyone wishing to start in the New Year can do so with a completely free two-week trial.

New classes for children from the age of seven and adults are on Mondays, Tuesday and Wednesday. Also if you have trained in martial arts previously and would like to get back into training we offer support to help you back.
