welcome to paul pears karate
Paul Pears Karate was founded in 2008 and is built on `Traditional Values` and it has everything needed to be an effective Martial Art, making it perfect for adults and children wanting to learn a Self-defence system to protect themselves.
"My system of Martial Art adapts to you, regardless of your ability or age. It is easy to learn, easy to practice and of course, a very effective Self-Defence System! Below is a brief meaning of what I teach and there is a full description on the Articles page".
유 Yu - [Soft] This utilises your `internal strength` and helps to give you more concentration and focus. You do not always have meet force with force. There is a saying "if you can`t do it slow, you can`t do it fast".
캉 Kang - [Hard] This utilises your `external energy` and creates a strong foundation for the rest of your life. It also has to do with determination and your willpower, never giving in nor yielding, but always staying focused at the task in hand.
도 Do - [The Way] or [Way of Life]. Martial Arts training will change the way you move and the way that you think. Anyone practicing our Martial Art, will have a more optimistic and a happier outlook on their life. There are no problems… Only answers! You do not have to be fit or flexible, that will come with time and the right teaching and training.
We have Adults and Children (from 8 years of age) in our classes and it is where families can train together. It is one of the few activities that the whole family can do together and at the same time.
Regardless of your ability, age or fitness levels, Yu Kang Do is achievable for everyone and is very rewarding!
I believe the two most important things in life that a person can learn and especially children, are... Learn how to swim and learn a Martial Art! Both can save your life and are especially beneficial for your health.
