Due to COVID-19 fitness and martial arts clubs have had to adapt to fit in line with government guidance. With restricted numbers being allowed to train at once and keeping the premises Covid-19 compliant has made it harder for a small clubs to keep running.
Kazoku Karate-Do is an all inclusive club we teach students that suffer from mental health or have learning and physical difficulties. Are vision is to run all inclusive family classes where not only do the students learn a martial arts and get fit they also learn and understand about other students difficulties and how they can adapt how they approach everyone as an individual.
This way this will help stop the stigma around mental health, learning and physical difficulties.
Sensei David also suffers from depression, anxiety and A.D.H.D so fully understands the daily struggles that people can suffer with. David and Tony set up Kazoku Karate-Do in 2019 with the vision of running all inclusive clubs. David and Tony not only haven their Safe Guarding level 2 and Safe Guarding vulnerable Adults Certificates. They also spent seven hard weeks during the first lockdown to obtain their level 3 AQA in Wholistic mentoring. This has given them the tools to help young youths and adults by mentoring them through any current issues they may be going through.
Karate has been proven to help mental wellbeing and also keeping fit while having fun.
Our intention is to keep giving students achievable goals and provide a friendly safe environment for people of all walks of life.
We have students who come through the door who come to learn self defence, keep fit or just to be part of a social group all the way through to people who will one day represent their country in karate.
Staying open is our main goal so I can keep providing to the community. Keeping people safe and well is now more than ever a priority.
