Keiryu Practical Karate
Lee Mullan, 3rd Dan Instructing
Karate was originally developed as a system of movements to defend against brutal attacks from ‘villains and ruffians’. It was not, in our view, devised to defend against attackers who had undergone some kind of formal combative training. Neither was it originally developed as a martial system. It was constructed by and for civilians, to be used against violent civilian attackers. It is within and from this context that our training at Keiryu Practical Karate has, and continues to evolve.
"Lee Mullan is an extremely enthusiastic karateka and is not one to rest on his laurels. Lee has an excellent pedigree in traditional karate and understands its application in the modern world. He is one of a small number of people to be qualified as an Introductory Instructor in my approach to kata application / practical karate and I recommend him and his group to anyone wanting quality karate with a genuine relevance to modern self-protection." - Iain Abernethy, 6th Dan

Programs & Class Schedule
We offer karate classes for children from 6-14 years of age.
Classes are fun and exciting for children. We create a safe and contained setting for learning. Play, fun and movement are important aspects of growth and development. These are incorporated into classes for children.
We modify our karate for children - making it distinct from the karate we teach our adult classes. However we give them enough knowledge and understanding for when they move onto the adult level. We see Karate as a comprehensive educational process and cater for all ages.
What are the benefits of taking part in regular karate lessons for your child:
An understanding of the basic principles upon which karate is based. Basic techniques such as kicks and punches.
Children gain more confidence in the balance and co-ordination within their system.
Confidence comes from success. So we award a belt system as an indication of a child's progress through their karate education.
These belts are earned as a result of efforts made to incorporate and visibly demonstrate what they have learnt in classes in exams called 'gradings'. As with our adult classes, we don't 'give' away belts, they are earned. As a direct result of success students feel more confident in themselves, this transfers to other areas of their lives, eg., in their schooling.
Karate helps build strong bones and muscles, builds the respiratory or breathing system - resulting in strong lungs.
An atmosphere of mutual respect for others is cultivated in the dojo.
