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

Prices:

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:
 
     
 
Courtesy
Honesty
Integrity
 
 
Perseverance
Self Control
Determination
 
 
Modesty
Loyalty
Sportsmanship
 
     
  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.
