Just wanted to pass on my thanks for the way you teach and encourage your students. Louis' confidence has really developed over the last few years without him becoming cocky and I believe much of that is down to his karate training. Thanks again and keep up the good work.–Steve Hargrave - Parent

Oscar has come a long way since being taught by Sensei Ady, he has learnt discipline and control and loves his lessons. Ady gives great teaching in an outstanding environment.–Victoria Woodley - Parent

Having never been involved with Karate before, we can only comment on Matthew's experiences - now he has settled in he really enjoys himself and appears to be doing well. Thanks for Ady's patience at the start.–Andrew Binks - Parent
