I've been training at this club for many years, when being a female it can be quite scary joining a martial arts club. Bob Hague, the club instructor is very welcoming as well as rest of the people at the club. No matter how old or young you are karate is very good for fitness and for self defense. Both of my kids now train at this club , they are doing really well and enjoy going every Saturday. Through the week there are adults classes and ladies self defense classes which are mixed levels and abilities. I would highly recommend this club.
