A traditional martial arts club, teaching self-defence, self-discipline and self-protection. Our kids and adult karate classes help students improve fitness, flexibility and co-ordination whist building confidence and self esteem.
Like all other MayoShinDo clubs our club is run in a friendly, quiet and non-intimidating manner. All our instructors are qualified, insured and DBS checked. MayoShinDo is great for students male and female, young and old. There is no minimum fitness requirement to start, so anyone from 6 to 70 (or more!) can learn. Our aim is to ensure all our students learn safely and learn good technique but most importantly enjoy doing it. Start at your own pace, and you will be amazed at what you can achieve!
Classes are held at the Community Centre, which is located just behind Sennen School. Although karate is the main focus of our classes, judo is often an optional activity offered to students. All classes cost £3 per student. Students are welcome to attend more than one class per day with discounted prices available to those wishing to do so.
The Sennen club is an ideal location for Cornwall students who live in the surrounding villages of St Just, St Buryan, St Leven and is only 9 miles from Penzance. We have a good range of male and female students of all ages and grades.
If you want to give our class a go just turn up on the night. If you have any questions then please contact us below. We look forward to seeing you soon. Your first class is free!
