Foundation Training:

Foundation training is a repetition of individual punching and kicking techniques. Through repetition training, the correct foundation technique is developed quickly and through proper form, power and speed are achieved. Without a solid foundation at the start of your training, it’s impossible to build an all round martial artist.

Solo Drills:

The combination of specific punching and kicking drills trains the mind and body to automatically remember a sequenced combination of effective techniques. These drill sets develop a muscle memory of specific combinations, targeted at the vulnerable areas of the human body.

Impact Training:

Through the use of kick shields, thai pads and focus mitts, students learn to develop ultimate power and speed while feeling the realism of impacting an opponent. This is a large component to our program at Newcastle karate and often neglected in most martial arts schools.

Two person drills:

Specific pre-arranged two person drills develop timing and distancing skills. They also teach the student how to cover up and use evasive movement to move out of danger, while also learning how to bridge the gap and deliver a counter attack. The two person drills teach more than just punching and kicking, they also incorporate joint locks, strangulations, throws and techniques of restraint, both standing and on the ground.

Self Defence:

The school has a solid focus on Habitual Acts of Physical Violence, These common attacks and responses to are drilled in the class to ensure the students have enough confidence to use them, should they ever be in a situation where they have no choice but to defend themselves.
