On Sunday 26th July we held our first squad training session at the Old Poole Sports Centre. The response from Students of the combined ISMAA clubs was fantastic with about 30 students attending. More importantly was the fantastic effort that every single one of the students put into the session. I'm sure that many of them will have suffered considerable aching the next day but the experience they gained from the squad training will have easily outweighed the discomfort of the aches.

The event was hosted by our newly appointed squad coach Dan Weiss who has a vast amount of experience as a squad coach and also a competitor in Kata and Kumite. Dan put together a session which was both enjoyable and hard work and this was met by a huge amount of enthusiasm from all the students. A great deal of emphasis was also put on team spirit which is essential in buidling a strong and formidable squad.

Our ultimate goal is to put together a number of squads and also some teams so we can initially attend some of the competitions around the West Midlands and beyond. This will give those students wishing to compete an opportunity to gain some invaluable experience.

We are hoping to hold the next Squad training session in about a months time. The date and venue will be confirmed by your instructor as soon as we have organised it. please keep checking your clubs websites for updated information. We will also hopefully be setting up a dedicated Facebook page where you will be able to keep updated with Squad news.




For a number of reasons I have decided to postpone the grading, which was originally scheduled for Sunday 9th August The new date for the grading will be confirmed soon but I have to check hall availability. As soon as I have checked and confirmed the date I will notify you all via email and will post another notice on here.




At long last after many years of closure, the old Poole Sports Centre has been re-opened by a company called the 'Project Climbing Centre'.

Karate Lessons will be held every Wednesday from 6.30pm to 7.30pm. Hopefully extending to more nights and times as the club grows.

The Project Climbing Centre is located on the third floor of the Dolphin Shopping Centre, next to the Poole library. Parking is available in the multi storey car park, which links directly to the shopping centre.

All students welcome from beginners to advanced students, Male or Female, young or not so young. Come along and give it a try. You have nothing to lose because the first lesson is free.
