Sensei Emma Harris has trained for over 10 years in Karate and run’s the Martial Arts school. Emma, a 2nd Dan in Kaizenkan Karate has researched and developed a unique teaching syllabus dedicated to teaching karate to young children.

Emma is passionate in her belief that children learn best when having fun, her classes help to build self-confidence in children by believing in their own abilities and encouraging self-worth by using her monthly patch reward systems. Children improve their hand/eye coordination, memory, focus and listening skills using positive reinforcement.

In the event of a lockdown, children are taught via Zoom, so they won't miss out.

What our parents say...

I have never seen anyone have such control over a bunch of 3-4 year olds as Sensei Emma, without ever having to raise her voice. I cant even keep two girls in check, yet they all stand and wait their turn-it's amazing to watch! My girls love going to karate and it's a brilliant way to burn off energy whilst also learning some self control and respect. So pleased that we signed up!Shoned Seddon

Sensai Emma is fantastic, she not only brings fun and humour to the Karate class but trains them to build their confidence, improve their strength and become more focussed. My daughter's confidence has improved so much and she can't wait to go to class each week and learn her next move and gain another badge. Would highly recommend any child to attendRachel De Loayza

Emma has the unique mix of a caring and fun teacher with the discipline and skill of a black belt. Her classes engage the shyest of children and challenge the most confident. Would highly recommend Sensei Emma's classes for all!Rachel Williams Chris Arnold
