Karate Kids

These children are part of a group that were demonstating Freestyle Karate in the Clarendon Mall last Saturday.

They are certainly a lively, friendly, fit bunch of individuals. Their certified blackbelt instructor, Stuart Tomlinson of Evade Martial Arts also teaches kickboxing for adults.

Hello, Gerald. Afraid I'm late for tea. I'm going to nose around and catch up on your photos. I've been away all week.

Thanks for your kind words. The children really work hard with their training and have to go above and beyond to also learn routines for performances. Nice photo as well. We recently performed at ashton arcades shopping centre and will be appearing all over tameside this year so hopefully we will keep getting better and better.

How cute! Karate is such a good way to learn discipline, build stamina and good coordination. Have you given it a go?
