  • 5 star review  My son attended Muscliffe Karate Academy for nearly 10 years. He began aged 6 and has just left to concentrate on his GCSE exams after gaining his second dan. He achieved his black belt aged 12. Karate, and Sensei Gary in particular, gave Ben so very much more than merely a hobby or a sport. It gave him resilience, respect and a sense of self-respect that enabled him to make sensible life choices when those around him were choosing to take a different path in life. In short, Karate really has made Ben into the young man he is today - capable, enthusiastic and with a clear vision for his own future that he is determined to achieve. I cannot thank Sensei Gary and Michelle enough.

  • 5 star review  Our son has been attending for 2 years and the effect it has had on him has been outstanding. His school grades have increased dramatically, he has become healthier, more confident and shows more patience and self discipline than we ever imagined possible. The team are fantastic and actually care about the children and what occurs in their day to day lives, giving advice and support whenever needed. One of the things that impresses us most is the motivation that is provided to the children through inspiring talks and monthly motos assisting them in making sensible life choices and teaching them safety awareness. We are very grateful to have found Muscliffe Karate Academy and look forward to our twin girls attending in the future. Andrea Bailey.

  • positive review  My son adores his karate lessons, for a non sporty kid this is perfect for him and with monthly tag tests and sign offs for belt gradings it’s THE perfect environment to learn. I can’t believe how much he’s come on in less than 1 year. Highly recommend and thank you MKA xx

Sensei Gary is hands down the best teacher/life coach I have ever has the pleasure of meeting. A fantastic role model for the children. Fantastic, keep up the good work.
