Martial Arts for Self-Defense

Yes, it is good to know how to defend yourselves but most instructors will tell you that there is no winner when it comes to standing toe to toe with an assailant and trying to beat them. The best self defence strategy is to always escape as fast as possible and run away. What martial arts will do, is help teach you how to escape, how to break a grip, possibly disable the assailant and then get out of there! One of the key factors to your escape is confidence in the knowledge that you CAN escape.

Welcome to Plymouth Karate Academy The Plymouth Karate Academy was founded in 1999 by Sensei Stuart Hick and has gone from strength to strength, training a wide range of members of all ages, backgrounds and abilities. Many people consider starting a martial art, but give up on the idea because they feel they are too young, too old, or not fit enough. But nothing could be further from the truth. Here at Plymouth Karate Academy, we teach effective Karate and Self-Defence with genuine applications to modern day situations, using the skills passed down to us from our mentors. Most importantly you won’t find us knocking at your door trying to sign you up for lengthy expensive memberships. We are not like the big profit making martial arts schools. All of our instructors give their time freely in order to ensure the continued high standard of training that we ourselves, as Traditional Karate Students, have become accustomed too. As a result your training fees go towards the day to day running, administration and continued growth of the Academy. This in turn is how we manage to keep our tuition fees to a minimum, whilst still delivering a high standard of technical knowledge and tuition. All Plymouth Karate Academy Instructors are trained the highest level and the club has over 60 years of combined experience to ensure that you benefit from the very best coaching and training available. All our instructors are of course fully insured and CRB checked.
Ashiita - Kai Karate Kids

  • Self Defence
Our students have constantly proved themselves in competitions at all levels from local grandslam events to international tournaments time and time again... Ashiita-kai is the south west's premier freestyle karate school. We teach proven competition techniques designed to suit all comers in a safe, friendly environment. Some of our students train regularly for the competitive aspect but many train to simply get an all round workout. The Ashiita-Kai Dojo is open to any and all who wish to train, irrespective of whether they train elsewhere or not. The Sensei (Russell) doesn't allow "red-tape" and "politics" to get in the way of training, and there is no room for egotism within the Dojo walls, so you'll find no "big-heads" or "show-offs" there. It is a genuinely friendly and enjoyable atmosphere, and although the respect, discipline and etiquette are still present, the two main rules of the Dojo are;- "Don't overdo it and risk injury" and "Enjoy yourself." On top of this, there is great open-mindedness. Russell and many students are regularly attending seminars of various styles throughout the year, because they are smart enough to realize that you NEVER stop learning. Everybody has different abilities therefore the techniques we teach are designed to be tried by all and then adopted and adapted by each student to suit their own natural ability and subsequently build their own repertoire of techniques into their own unique arsenal for competitive use. We encourage students to absorb what is useful and discard what they find useless. Whatever your experience whether you have years of martial arts training under your belt or have never thrown a punch in your life, Ashiita-kai is great way to get fit and learn self defense - everybody is welcome!!
