GENERAL CLASSES & BEGINNERS COURSES
We hold mixed classes every week and families are welcome. We have a strong membership who all started as beginners at some stage in their careers. Whether you choose to try this for self defence, fitness or just socialising opportunities, there is more to karate than just training in a room and then leaving until next time. You are welcome to visit, watch or join in. No equipment required, just loose clothing and a short health & welfare discussion.
PROMOTIONAL ACTION VIDEOS
YouTube Promotional Video Clip
Aquila have recently experimented with promotional video footage to assist music artists. We have to thank Darren, an established camera technician, who together with the band 'Razorwire' provided this opportunity to develop into this exciting venture. We are available for new ideas but wish to state that we do not promote unprovoked violence and none of the practitioners were harmed a s a result of the footage provided. We also support the campaign to remove violence from our streets and channel energy into healthy pursuits in the form of karate practice in a controlled environment. Contact us for more should you have a positive use for our services.
ADULT / SENIOR GRADE CLASSES
We have Black & Brown belt only training classes currently running on Tuesday evenings. The sessions are without breaks and intended to raise the bar on our usual sessions where younger people are in attendance. We are able to focus in a deeper fashion and hopefully give you a broader understanding of karate benefits.

You will need to bring your safety equipment, with sets of blue and red mitts/belts etc. We sell all equipment needed.
SPORTS KARATE TRAINING FOR OFFICIALS
Call for more information on these sessions as we will be discussing the World Karate Federation rules on Kumite matches and preparing for the referee and judges written examination. This is good for club instructors as if you do not know the rules, you cannot give your students the best chance of success on the circuit.
These classes are available on a 1-1 basis or a 2-1 maximum. You will receive close development advice to improve your performance and knowledge of partner work, kata or any combination of the syllabus you wish to learn more about. We will keep you on track for the syllabus and will not take you too far out of your comfort zone although you will be pushed towards your potential. Call for appointments before booking online.
CORPORATE PACKAGES FOR EXECUTIVE AWAY DAYS
We can come to your venue or you can bring staff to us. All packages arranged to suit the group profile, whether it’s a fitness experience or self defence for your staff. We also have team activities for the competitive staff who fancy their chances against other teams within the organisation. It’s all good fun which will give you an insight into karate and its benefits. This will not turn you into a superhero but it may do wonders for your confidence and health. Give your staff the benefit of some personal safety tips and let off some steam away from the routine of an office floor. Karate is good for reducing staff sickness and helps to keep people motivated.
