Our Ultimate Training Weekend is one of the most enjoyable events of the year. We train for 6 hours across 2 days with the very best line up of International Instructors available in Shotokan Karate. It is the ultimate test of endurance and our students always leave feeling inspired, exhilarated and exhausted all at the same time!
This event is open to both children and adults but you must be graded to at least 8th Kyu Red Belt to take part in the training.
We hold training weekends twice a year. Training places are allocated on a first come first served basis. Book your place quickly because the last event sold out in just 2 days.
If you complete the training over the whole weekend then you will receive a large certificate as a reward.
Haven Holiday Park is the venue for this event at the newly refurbished Hafan Y Mor Park in North Wales. It is a fantastic getaway for all the family as there is so much to keep everybody entertained. Haven offers us fantastic self-catering accommodation at discounted prices for our group.
Training takes place on both Saturday and Sunday. There is plenty of free time in the afternoon for students to spend with their family and karate friends. The park has undergone a massive refurbishment.
New for 2017, Haven have recently completed a £3million refurbishment to their heated indoor pool. This fabulous facility now features three flume slides, a multi-lane slide, bubble pool, Lazy River and wave pool. There are also have play areas for children and a lane pool for those wanting to just swim.
In your free time you could enjoy a trip out on the boating lake, climb between the trees at the outdoor high ropes course or roller blade in sportsdrome.
You can hire bikes and pedalos, there’s just so much to keep the whole family entertained.
There is also an amusement arcade, bars, restaurants and daytime & evening entertainment. The beach is right alongside all the caravans and when the weather is dry, we always make time for a bit of beach training which is great fun!
