Both my son’s and I joined the Academy about six months ago; we all really look forward to going to lessons. My boys do two lessons a week and are progressing well, I try to do three lessons to try and get/keep fit. All our fitness has improved and we have all moved on to our yellow belts now and hope to have our orange before Christmas. Sensei Dervish make’s all lessons fun so it makes you want to go to all the lessons you can. Both my boys are benefiting from the respect and confidence from doing karate that we are noticing in all aspects of their lives at school and home. The Academy really has improved our lives. Danny Stewart and the boys
