Karate is for everyone from 7 years onwards (children from 4 years can come for a trial session to see how they get on). Traditional Shotokan karate lessons for all ages and abilities. At Lympstone Karate our motto is ‘work hard and play harder’.

Lympstone Karate teaches traditional Shotokan karate lessons weekly on Tuesdays and Thursdays. For anyone starting for the first time you will have a few weeks with a group of other beginners or individual instruction with one of our qualified instructors.

Benefits of karate include improved fitness, co-ordination, flexibility, confidence, improved self-esteem and it’s a great way to make new friends.

The lessons are taken by Sensei Marianne Fox, a 3rd Dan with KUGB (Karate Union of Great Britain).
