Welcome to Red Tigers Karate near Selby
Welcome to Red Tigers Karate Club, the karate club with the family at its heart. We invite you to see for yourself just how rewarding and enjoyable karate can be. We are a wado ryu based karate club in the village of Bubwith.
Wado Ryu is a style of karate originating from Okinawa in Japan, founded by Hironori Otsuka. He developed a style of karate very much influenced by jujitsu (one of Japans oldest martial arts), from one point of view Wado Ryu might be considered to be a style of Jujitsu rather than karate.
Unlike sports such as football, rugby and tennis where the closest you come to participating with your child is to stand in the cold or coach your childs team, karate will allow you to stand side by side with your child as you train together.
Training finishes to suit the students, either 7.00pm, 7.30pm or 8.00pm. We understand that sometimes children need to be home early on school nights ect., so we provide a mechanism to assist with that.
