Louise the TigerWe are pleased to announce that the Kugatsu Karate-Do is starting a new 8 week pilot Disability Karate class for children with physical and / or learning disabilities and their siblings.

The 8-week Pilot Junior Programme will provide a weekly 1-hour karate session free of charge to participants and their siblings.  

No pre-booking required! Just come along to the class on 26th October and register.

Children can wear jogging trousers and T-shirt. No other kit is required.

Following a successful pilot phase, it is our intention that the club will continue to deliver these sessions as part of our on-going programme of weekly karate classes. The participants would have the option to continue to attend these sessions and/or progress to our integrated sessions.

Karate is a fun, exciting and healthy activity for adults and children of all ages and abilities.  There are numerous opportunities to meet and make new friends and to participate in a wide variety of fun and competitive activities.  Karate promotes overall confidence, self-respect, physical and mental wellbeing, concentration and independence.

The striking of pads as well as the fun orientated physical activities are great for reducing emotional stress.  

Charles the Bearded DragonKarate helps children to be able to learn positive life skills early in their development as well as helping them to become successful learners, confident individuals, responsible citizens and effective contributors.

Karate is now confirmed as a recognised Paralympic sport and the World Karate Federation, over recent years, has organised two Para-Karate World Championships, with Disability Karate also being included in other national and international Karate competitions.  As such, a pathway for development and performance could potentially be a longer-term goal for the club as a result of this project.  

Presently, there are limited opportunities for disabled people to participate in Karate throughout Glasgow.  The support provided by Glasgow Sport, and the City, will help widen access to and participation in Karate for disabled people.
