ReviewsThis club is like my second family!
I would like to say thank you to Solihull Karate Academy for the fantastic three years that we spent with the club. Due to a change in my workplace we moved out of the area and it’s been really tough leaving this fantastic club. Special thanks to Sensei Hegarty for the excellent karate classes and the wise advice preparing us for the gradings and competitions. This club is like my second family, I've made lots of friendships, so did my sons.
A fantastic team and lovely people to train with. Big thanks to everyone!

Given my children an inner confidence....
I have done lots of different exercise classes over the years, however, the best all round work out has to be Karate. It was something that when I was younger, I had often thought about trying but never found or made time for. When my children joined the Club a few years ago, I decided to give it a go and I have never looked back. I am fitter, stronger and more confident after having practiced Karate regularly for several years. Shotokan Karate is a fantastic Martial Art teaching discipline alongside sport. Whilst getting fit, you exercise mind and body by learning Kata, Kihon and Kumite – the skills taught for fast reaction and self-defence. Our Club is a friendly environment within which to train and has certainly given my children an inner confidence, kept them fit and helped them form new friendships. Sensei Hegarty is a great instructor and has taken me, my husband and my son on a karate journey from White belt up to First Dan Black belt. I really enjoy Karate and I am sure that I will continue to enjoy training for many years to come.
Why sit on the bench watching the children? Try it out and I guarantee you’ll be happy you did.

Feels more like a family....
I Joined Solihull Karate Academy 5 years ago, It is a great club to be a part of, everybody is friendly and sometimes I can say it definitely feels more like a family. My two boys joined first then my husband and I decided to join. I had trained in karate when I was younger and had always regretted giving it up, I am now a 1st Dan Black belt and I also help out with teaching the classes, which are both great achievements.
Karate builds confidence both mentally and physically and also to be respectful and disciplined, karate is a great way to keep fit and active as an individual or as a family.
Sensei Greg Hegarty is a fantastic teacher if you train hard and put in 100% effort and more he will definitely bring out the best in you and help you achieve your goals.
