Karate – Way of the empty hand
Martial Arts, our Shotokan Karate in particular can be many things to many people. It’s not simply about punching, kicking and fighting. Look back 100 or even 5000 years at its history and yes, we see fighting method that has been proven to be very effective. But look a little deeper at the Samurai for example and we see an education that teaches respect for other people, honor, understanding and self-respect. For us at Cambridge ESKA, its about coming together with a common interest, fostering trust, building confidence and self-esteem and lasting friendships. Our physical exercise provides the education and training to improve health and overall well-being, which in turn promotes confidence and self-esteem.
We are passionate about helping people to improve and move forward on whichever path they choose to take. Testimony to this is our support of numerous Duke of Edinburgh awards two of which are Gold awarded to our club Black Belts.
We have club members from all walks of life, entire families and we are privileged to have several members of the Japanese community training with us. Our age range goes from 5 to over 60.
Most importantly, we have fun whilst learning the same time.
