Our Karate Programs

For Beginners, Intermediates and Advanced


We have programs for everyone at Sakura. Beginner classes, Intermediate and Advanced classes split by belt level and age. Our programs are balanced, engaging, fun, enjoyable and motivating.

Classes consist of a warm up, stretching, lots of basic technique, impact training (hitting pads), kata (pre-arranged forms), kumite (sparring – not for beginners though), lots of practical self defence that works and of course, fitness training.

Our classes are enjoyed by all students. Class sizes are kept relatively small (10-18 students per class) with normally 2 instructors for every class. It is a great environment for people to learn in a safe and encouraging way.
