The class of 2018

In March 2018 Woodlane ran an ‘Adult new Starter’ class to attract new students into the club.  Ten students attended on that first night.  A year later and most of that class are still here, having progressed through a year of quite intense training and passing a number of gradings.

Here is their story, told in their own words, of the experience of starting out in Karate  as ‘adult starters’.

I started my training as a senior student in March 2018 along with a number of other seniors.
I have found the classes so helpful with regard to fitness and learning self defence with everything explained in detail.
There is a great friendly atmosphere at the club with the best possible instruction.
I am really enjoying the classes at Woodlane. It is suitable for all ages and fitness levels.
