SAMA Karate Kids

Kids Karate

We currently run over 50 seperate children's karate classes across our areas spanning from Eastbourne to Battle. Taken by fully qualified instructors with many years of experience our classes are held straight after school, evening and weekends giving parents flexibility and choice.

Our weekday straight after school classes last for 45 minutes. Our evening and weekend classes last for 45 minutes for beginners, increasing to 1 hour once children pass their first belt (red belt). We normally take children from 4 years up depending on the individual child.

Our kids karate classes are £5 per lesson PAY-AS-YOU-GO, so this means if your children don't attend for any reason you don't pay! Compare all this to many other martial arts groups and children's activities and you may be surprised!

Respect & Discipline

Respect and discipline are the most important parts of our karate training. At SAMA children learn this from the very start. They are taught to line up in class, act on orders, learn to behave, control their anger and control their techniques. They also learn that karate is not to be used to hurt people at school or outside.


Mixing with other children in class decreases parent separation anxiety and helps children gain more confidence. In time we find that many children start to build confidence in themselves helping them at school and with their social skills.


Our students are taught that karate is only to be used as a means of self protection. The philosophy of karate is that the first move starts with a defensive one not an attack.


SAMA karate classes are great for helping children improve their all round co-ordination.

Healthy Exercise

Our special exercise programme, developed from over 30 years of teaching helps children build a healthy body for the future. Benefits include: strong bones, muscle strength and improved fitness.

Focus & Awareness

In today's fast moving and often stressful environment karate can help you to develop a greater self control and focus. Being aware of your surroundings and avoiding dangerous situations is a vital key to good self-defence.
