Choosing a Martial Art for You

Adult karate,Biggleswade Karate,Family karate / November 7, 2016

Whether you are a family or an individual, wanting to take up a new challenge, when deciding upon the right Martial Art there is a lot to consider.

We suggest starting to think about what you want to achieve.
Are you looking to keep fit?
Perhaps you are looking to enhance your social life and have fun?
Maybe you are looking for a way to increase your focus?
Your goals are key in deciding which martial art is right for you.

Another consideration is the quality of the instructor. All Instructors are trained to a high standard, but you have to feel comfortable with the way they instruct and their personality too. Take advantage of our FREE FIRST SESSION available to ALL.

Another big consideration is distance to travel. You don’t want to be travelling too far, so again look at the location and venue and how easy it is to park, after all you don’t need to be paying extra for car parking if you don’t need to.

There are a lot of martial arts out there, so let’s look at the benefits of each one from the following list:

What is the difference between Martial Arts?

It is a general term that covers all traditional fighting arts. There are many different styles of martial art. Simply too many different martial arts to mention. The styles are like choosing a motor car. Sports, luxury, 4×4, hatchback, people carrier?

It is often chosen as ‘fit for purpose’. To how you wish to use it and who it is for. Here we try to simply explain and hope that you will see how useful and suitable our style of martial art is to you and your family.
