Welcome to WHPS Go-Dai Karate School; a karate school for junior grades (under 16's)!


Training fees are payable every 15 weeks in advance at £37.50 = £2.50 per week!

We train every Saturday morning at:
Walton Holymoorside Primary School,
Holymoor Road, Holymoorside, Chesterfield (Click link for map). Training schedules (term time only) are shown below:

Juniors only (up to blue belt): 9.30 - 10.30am
Juniors only (blue belt upwards) 10.30 - 12.00pm
  WHPS Karate School was formed in 2004 by Sensei Nigel B Briggs, 5th Dan to enable karate and the martial arts to be learned by younger students in comfortable surroundings at a weekend, which does not affect other school related activities (especially getting up the next morning!).  
We are a non-profit making organisation - all training fees are paid into the WHPS school budget.
So far, we have raised £38,071 for the school!
Our syllabus builds from the basics of developing self-discipline and a positive mental attitude, through to improving concentration and self-confidence. Every student attending our courses will be assessed for his/her strengths and areas of development. We teach much more than just kicking and punching; listed below are just some of the aspects our syllabus builds upon:
Self Control
  We believe that teaching these life skills to children at a young age can have a tremendous effect on the outcome of their lives and how successful they become.
