What Our Martial Arts Students & Parents Are Saying?



I've wanted to join a kickboxing class for a long time but being a bigger woman I was apprehensive. I liked the Newcastle Karate page, read the reviews and watched the video clips and decided to give the two free classes a go. Marc and the ladies were so welcoming. I felt so comfortable. After the second class I was keen to join. Looking forward to continuing on with classes and getting fitter. Ladies’ Kickboxing is the highlight of my week!




Very happy mother

My husband and I had been looking around for a karate class for our son & when we walked into Newcastle Karate not only were we impressed by the size of this venue but we were greeted by Marc with a friendly smile & a lot of great information about his classes & his team We didn't feel any pressure to sign up but by the end of the class & the smile on our son's face we knew this was the place for him , he has just received his next belt & is feeling very special so thank you to Marc & his team for giving Jett just what he needed, I constantly tell all my friends about how good this place is.


Very happy mother



A very professional and excellently run dojo. From the first class Sensei’s to the large mat area, gym and outstanding facilities. Members are very friendly with a great community feel. My son & I highly recommend it for all ages.




I’ve been training in the Ladies’ Kickboxing class for over a year now and have noticed a huge improvement in my fitness and strength. I really enjoy training in such a fun, friendly and welcoming environment with a supportive group of women and fantastic instructors who are constantly encouraging me to improve my skills.




I have been attending the Ladies’ Klickboxing for almost 3 years. What a great way to learn skills, raise fitness and meet new people. All walks of life have come through the doors and become a part of the Newcastle Karate crew. Friendships have been made, confidence levels have grown, and opportunities to diversify to other classes have been offered. I personally loved my time when I trained with my daughter and saw her grow in strength, confidence and self-defence. It brought comfort to me, knowing she had the basics if she ever required it. This comfortable, relaxed setting is what you make of it. I personally have grown so much from coming here, and love nothing more than to let my frustrations out on the pads.




Newcastle Karate is a fantastic dojo. The facilty is great with lots of mat space and plenty of heavy bags. The instructors are all amazing, a wealth of knowledge between them. I look forward to many years of training with this great team.



My son Isaac began the Kids BJJ classes at the start of the year. He is a shy kid and I still remember the way there for his first lesson he said "Dad what if the kids don't like me". As soon as he got there the kids and coaches made him feel comfortable straight away. Isaac plays other sports but he now tells me he would pick bjj over all of them. I would say his behaviour has also improved since he began his classes. He loves it. Not long after I decided to give the Adults BJJ a go and at 41 years I am really enjoying the challenge. It is very family friendly and I cant recommend enough!
