Having trained many years ago, I decided in my 40’s to get back in to karate. I searched around & chose to give Surrey Karate a try. I’m so pleased I did, I felt welcome straight away & the lessons are geared to all levels. There are plenty of us female students & a real mix of ages, proving that it’s never too late to start training! I recommend anyone thinking of trying out karate to give this club a go, you won’t regret it!
My son Robert trained at the club for many years, starting at 7 years old. He often talks about his training at the clubs and how much he enjoyed the lessons, which gave him confidence and direction in his younger years.
He wanted to say hello to his old instructors and let them know he’s just joined the army!
Both my sons and daughter train at the clubs. As an instructor in the British army and someone about to compete in the invictus games, I wanted to find them a high quality martial arts club to train at. Having searched around and watched many different classes locally, I decided these clubs matched my expectations. They have exactly the right balance of discipline & fun and I highly recommend them.
After 30 years break, I eventually came back to the dojo during a tough time in my life with personal matters. Being back in the dojo, but more importantly Sensei Corin’s dojo, gave me a reason to carry on. My words will never adequately express my thanks to you and all the ladies and gents that I have been fortunate to meet at the clubs.
After a 15 year hiatus, I joined the Farnham Karate Academy, instructed by Sensei Corin. It has been a journey shared with my 3 children, all of whom have accompanied me in the dojo. Each lesson is different and the content suits all preferences, from sparring to kata and is attended by an incredibly friendly and welcoming set of individuals. The idea of achieving black belt had always seemed unattainable, but now at 1st Kyu, I finally believe it is within reach!
Karate has been great for helping me lose weight and improving my overall fitness and quality of life. Sensei Corin is encouraging, motivating, gives clear direction and is really excellent at explaining a technique and its application. You can see his passion when you enter the dojo which is inspiring. I have gained confidence and many new friends. I highly recommend Surrey Karate.
This is a great supportive and safe environment to train in. Everyone gets the attention they need to progress at a pace that is right for them be that with Sensei Graham or Sensei Corin.
I’ve been training under Sensei Corin for just over a year, having never studied martial arts previously. I joined at age 40 so naturally concerned if I would be able to keep up – but that was not an issue at all. Corin is calm, patient and treats everyone in the dojo at all levels equally and there is always something new to learn. The mental and physical benefits of Wado-ryu karate are phenomenal and I feel very lucky to be a part of this group. I’d recommend it to anyone (and I frequently do! ).
With my son interested in taking up martial arts aged 6, I thought I would join him, having trained intensively in karate in my teens. Based on that previous experience, it was really important to me to find a club that was fun for my son, but authentic and with a strong heritage and a budo ethos for me. After visiting the Haslemere dojo it was clear that Surrey Karate and the Wado Academy were exactly what we were looking for: excellent instruction for kids and adults, a friendly environment and a great way to maintain physical and mental well-being.
