Our Ultimate Training Weekends are one of the most enjoyable events of the year. We train for over 7 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 weeks.
If you complete the training over the whole weekend then you will receive a large certificate as a reward.
Haven Holiday Parks host this event at their flagship Presthaven Sands Park. 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 Friday evenings and all day Saturday. Sunday is a free day for students to spend with their family and karate friends. There is an indoor swimming pool, water slides, sauna, children’s pool, Go Karts, Outdoor aerial adventure park, amusement arcade, bars, restaurants and 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!

All students who complete the training will be rewarded with a certificate and each Guest Instructor will award a trophy on the day they teach.
