Kyokushin is a style of karate that focuses on sparring. But don’t worry, you’ll ease into it as your skills develop.
Training is tough but rewarding – not only do you get a great cardiovascular workout, but you’ll also develop self-esteem, strength of character and, of course, the confidence of knowing you can look after yourself when needed.
