I remember when I was a child, feeling uncertainty about beginning martial arts. I wondered if I had what it took to succeed and I wasn’t the most athletic or confident child - quite the opposite. Little did I know that beginning my martial arts journey would be one of the most profound experiences of my life!
When I opened my school in 2008, I made a commitment to serving and empowering the community of Southend-on-Sea by teaching children and adults the confidence, leadership, and fitness skills that can only be achieved through martial arts.
We focus on the personal development aspect of martial arts, not just self-defence moves.
Our instructors are all certified black belts, qualified, and professionally trained to teach martial arts.
We help build character and leadership qualities, helping students reach their full potential
Karate is the style of martial arts practiced by Okami Martial Arts students.
The journey from White Belt to Black Belt is one of incremental learning and skill development, that students of any age and fitness level can embark on.
One of the most fun parts of karate is the ability to test your skills by competing in a tournament. Tournaments are not only fun for competitors, but they also become a great social experience for parents as well!
From sparring to forms to team demos, these awesome competitions are not only a place where our students can test their skills, but also a place where team spirit is built, fears are overcome, and character is developed. Most importantly, they are tons of fun!
