Would You Like….

Not having to worry about knowing your Kata for your grading in June?

Not having to worry that your kata is good enough for your grading in June?

Would You Prefer to…..

KNOW your new kata is ready for June gradings?

SO MANY students have benefited from attending these friday sessions.

Kata is the foundation of martial arts, it not only helps with learning blocks and strikes, but also improves memory, discpline and focus.

For students that are on the Advance /Elite packages (2 classes per week) there is the dedicated KATA class that concentrates solely on your grade and kata.

Each class has 2-3 instructors to help you get your kata its best, but you will still need to practice at home too.

You need sparring pads

Like most sports you will need equipment, same with your martial arts.

You need sparring equipment which consists of sparring gloves and shin/foot pads.

RED & YELLOW Belts need a minimum of hand pads/gloves

GREEN Belts need hand pads/glove and shin/foot pads. 

These can be purchased via our on-line shop HERE 

Best thing is that when you purchase from us, you will know that they meet safety/insurance standards and are competitive in price.
Also purchasing from SESMA you are supporting YOUR club and not amazon/Sports Direct or a business that you have no connection with. 
Kickboxers: Please do not be offended if we do not allow you to wear your gloves for sparring due to being the wrong weight gloves.
