What People Say


"Delighted we enrolled our daughter in karate, the way the classes are run are very professional plus the level of instruction is second to none "

A.D.

"I couldn’t recommend Kilkenny Karate Club highly enough. My seven year old daughter walks a bit taller after every class. Older grades help the young in a lovely, friendly atmosphere. This is a great community which offers self-defence, exercise, better concentration and real achievement through the belts. Delighted to be part of it."

K.M

"We would like to thank Kevin for a brilliantly run class. The children thoroughly enjoyed themselves. So much so that we are holding a second class this term. He covered a lot of fitness issues and healthy living as well as the Martial Arts. Looking forward to this term."
