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
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
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
£40,331 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:
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.
