Family Karate is an excellent way for families to train together from beginner level all the way through to Black Belt. The family class allows juniors and adults to learn Karate together at a convenient time, giving families the flexibility needed within a modern, busy life. During the class students will still be split by age and grade to ensure that the needs of each student are fully met.
ESKA Karate offers a coloured belt system where all students start at White Belt and work up through different colours (Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Purple, Brown, and finally Black Belt).
This serves not only to measure a student’s progress but also provides a journey to embark on. Students are encouraged to set goals for these belts, which teaches the life skills of setting a target and working towards achieving it.
My son started karate with ESKA just over three yrs ago. He enjoys being a member of ESKA and has never regretted joining the club. There are lots of opportunities to take part in competitions and courses. The instructors always make the lessons not only interesting but fun. Since joining ESKA, my son has become very confident and is not far from his black belt. ESKA is a great club to join, whatever age you are.

At ESKA we practice strict control and are not a full contact club. All forms of partner work and sparring are done under the supervision of an instructor to ensure your (and your partner’s) safety; although, as with all sports, there remains a small risk of injury. We keep a full accident record book and all of our instructors have a current first aid certificate.
Our purpose-built home venue is The Dojo Norwich (NR6 6AX) but we hold classes all over Norwich and Norfolk at some of the best sports halls available. Check out our venues page and timetable to find the nearest classes to you.
We work hard to ensure all students enjoy their experiences with ESKA, which is why we offer a Free First Lesson at all our venues. Just complete a sign up sheet and turn up for your free trial.
Each grade has a different syllabus you are required to learn and complete in order to grade to the next belt.
Gradings are held every three months for all our students and give you the chance to progress to your next belt colour. Gradings are held at The Dojo Norwich; private gradings are also available.
