Tadcaster Martial Arts School going the extra mile

Situated in the heart of Tadcaster, the popular martial arts school provide high-quality training for those looking to get involved. Priding itself on bringing the best out of its students, the school is about ‘so much more’ than just martial arts.

Tadcaster Martial Arts is part of a larger group of schools, Martial Arts 4 U, which is headed up by the experienced Nicole Pratt who has previously competed in National and International Competitions. The Tadcaster School is headed up by lead instructor Kay Calvert who has been training for around seven years, having also competed at national competitions.

With a host of other talented coaches at Tadcaster, the club told us that its students are taught more than martial arts.

“Our school is about so much more than Martial Arts. We want to teach young people that respect, discipline and focus are just as important as having fun in our classes. We love having a community element and embracing the social side, we also have families that train with us which helps to give our schools their own family feel.

“On top of this, getting fit is a great side effect to learning our skills. The focus of our ladies’ class is fitness as well as skills.”

The group has a number of classes tailor-made for different age groups throughout the week, all taking place at the school on St Joseph’s Street in Tadcaster.

There is a whole range of age groups attending classes. They start from three years, our Mini Dragons Classes are for 3-6 years, Ninja Kids Classes are for 7-11 years. There is also a teen-specific class for 12-16 years, then for adults, there is a regular class, Beginners and Ladies’ Beginners, so a complete range!
