Karate (QMBL)


A friendly karate club geared towards anyone who would like to try a brand new sport as a beginner and always thought it would be great to try, all the way up to black belts and world champions.

We teach karate, ju-jitsu, self-defence, weapons, grappling and kickboxing, all as a wide-ranged 6 in 1 curriculum. We focus on developing strength, speed, accuracy, flexibility discipline and many more attributes for your overall improvement.

Whether you would like to learn a new important skill, get fit, or meet new people this is the club for you!
