Why choose Kyudokids?
Here are six reasons why we believe it's never too early to start your journey
Individually focussed teaching, with Senseis who have extensive experience of working with younger children: Classes are split into small groups, creating a low ratio of students per teacher and efficient progression. There is also only one grade, which once attained allows students to join the main school.
Traditional: Although Kyudokids is an introduction to karate, the syllabus is still derived from the Goju-Ryu style of Karate practiced by Kyudokan. As with most traditional martial arts, Kyudokids isn't just about learning how to punch or kick - children will benefit from gaining self-confidence, meeting new friends and getting used to listening to teachers.
Support: Kyudokan has a strong admin team that ensures our members are up-to-date on all club information. We have a free app ( and ) featuring class timetables and booking, club message board and progress tracking.
Preparation for 'big school', Kyudokan Karate is karate for real life, and may be daunting for younger children: Kyudokids is the ideal stepping stone to our general classes. There is no contact in the Kyudokids classes, the focus is on fun.
Unrivalled Value: An all-in monthly fee of just £30 for attendance at one of our Kyudokan dojos. Our monthly fee includes everything - we do not charge extra for gradings / belts or insurance, and there is no joining fee. Our members only shop offers everything you need, usually at less than MSRP.
Belonging: Kyudokids is part of a very well established and respected karate school that has been running for over 40 years. We take great pride in the fact that some students are 3rd generation where parents and even grandparents have trained or are still training. It is truly a club with a family atmosphere
