“The children enjoyed the taster sessions last week. The activities were varied with a good safety talk at the beginning. The staff were able to identify those children who were able and those who needed some support.”
Hapton CE VA Primary School
“The children thoroughly enjoyed the session. The leader of the activities was positive and motivating and did a great job to motivate and inspire the children. The session had good variation. There were opportunities for the children to watch, listen, ask questions and, importantly, to practise skills.”
Cecil Gowing Infant School
“Just to say thank you for attending the Sportfayre, the children (and adults) had a fantastic time trying the session. The stand and information that your had was of great help. The parents commented on how focused the children where when trying some of the moves.”
Attleborough Junior School
We wanted to say how brilliant the ‘ Taste of Karate’ you gave all our children was. Holding 14 separate sessions, one for each of our classes (of approx. 30 children each!) your instructor was extremely good. His manner of delivery was such that they all joined in enthusiastically and were completely engrossed in what he was demonstrating. Many thanks for offering us this opportunity.
Edmund De Moundeford VC Primary School
“Thank you for providing our school with the free karate taster day. All the children from Reception through to Year 6 thoroughly enjoyed their session with Dave who was brilliant. It was good to see the children learning new skills, being physically active and having great fun!!”

We would happily welcome Dave and ESKA back into our school at any time.”
