Karate is for men, women and children. Karate is for anyone; big or small, inexperienced or experienced. The traditional style of Goju Ryu Karate Do originated from Okinawa, Japan and develops very high levels of strength spiritually, mentally and physically, and improves health and vitality. Karate also offers fitness, toning and suppleness. 


It also teaches self-defense and discipline to the highest degree. Dojo classes and private lessons are also available. 

Historically, Lord Ienaga Hattori (1150-1185) founded Igaryu Ninjutsu in the 12th Century Japan using techniques derived from the knowledge and disciplines used by the Yamabushi (mountain warrior monks) dating back to the 6th Century. Igaryu Ninjutsu incorporates strategy, weaponry and fighting techniques.


The school develops mental, spiritual, physical balance and conditioning. More than just an art, Iga Ryu Ninjutsu is suited to helping people to cope with all aspects of life. We train a range of skills such as strikes, throws, grappling, weapons and espionage
