Karate/Kobudo Frequently Asked Questions

Here are a few questions about the Karate/Kobudo section that might be on your mind. For anything else, please don't hesitate to contact us.


I am interested in trying out Karate, but I've never done Martial Arts before...

The practice is open to beginners or practitioners of any level. Everybody is constantly learning new things: wether it's about new techniques, the way your body moves or even about science.

When is the best time to join practive?

You are very welcome to join us at any practice, just to take a look at how we do things or to start practicing regularly. Check the Class schedule and come at your convenience.

I can only come once a week/month...

That is not a problem, we do not take attendance at any of the practice. One of our aim is personal growth, each person has his/her own rhythm and can chose to attend at any time regardless of the other members of the group.

Do I need special clothes?

The members practicing regularly are usually wearing a Karate Gi, but it is not required. Any clothes in which you feel confortable moving will do.

Do I need to bring anything else?

You are welcome to bring anything you need, like a bottle of water or a towel. You don't need to bring any other equipment. We have some extra bô (wooden stick) that we can lend to guests or new members we practice bôjutsu.
