Suzaku Sparks

Our Sparks classes are specially run for young children between the ages of 3-8. The class is designed to focus on the fun aspects of martial arts and allowing children to develop at their own pace. We try to be flexible with training requirements, please speak to us if you have any special requests.

To further ensure that fun and development of the children are at the heart of these lessons, there is less pressure on the children to go for their next belt and gradings are held in familiar surroundings.

Your children have the oppotunity to learn in a safe, fun and energetic environment, build their confidence and make new friends.

The first lesson is free, so it does not cost anything to see if your children like it.

All our instructors are fully CRB checked, First Aid trained and fully insured with many years of expertise.

Generally, we encourage children who reach the age of 8, to start crossing over into the main class.
So, they will attend the Pee Wee class as normal, but also train in the first hour of the main class.
We know that every child is different and this decision is taken on an individual basis. Wherever possible, we try to ensure that a group of children will cross over together, so the change is not too daunting.

By the time your child reaches the age of 9, they will be need to be fully participating in the main class. The main reason for this is that they need to be learning new skills that are not taught in the Pee Wee class for their gradings.

Your children will hold a membership with WYSOK (West Yorkshire School of Karate and Oriental Arts) Association who is governed by NAKMAS National Governing Body (National Association of Karate and Martial Arts Schools)

Sparks Instructor - Sensei Kim
My training started in Wado Ryu in 2011. I originally joined to help my son with his confidence and self esteem.

It quickly became one of my passions leading me to train in other styles and weapons.

I have gained a great sense of achievement whilst watching my son develop and achieve his cadet dan grade at the age of 10.

I now take great pride in being the face of the Sparks classes and watching, encouraging and supporting each student through their own personal journey.
