SAMA Southwest Adults Karate

Karate - Sama Southwest
Adults Karate is aimed at teaching self-defence, self-discipline and respect to adults with the addition of improving physical and mental health, strength, reflexes and stamina.

SAMA KARATE is a way of life. The method that we teach is very traditional, we have a strong emphasis on discipline and self-pride. Etiquette in Sama makes up a large part of our training.
Discipline is a word often associated with martial arts, as karate students we are no exception, we pride ourselves on it. As Instructors, we encourage the same sense of pride in our students’ ability to control their movements, emotions and spirit.
The fitness aspect of the practice benefits students with strength, toning, balance, timing, speed, reflexes, coordination, cardiovascular workout and flexibility. In addition, with time karate can help gain self-confidence, a positive attitude to all aspects of life and a sense of achievement.
Sama classes although based around the traditional ethos of karate are friendly and welcoming. We take the individual adult needs, skills, fitness, age and abilities into consideration. That is why here at Sama Southwest we have many students of all ages and abilities training with us regularly.
We don’t expect you to be a black belt in record time but we do know that you’ll enjoy it! The hardest part is walking through the dojo door. A change of life is just a click away.
