What Our Pupils Think...

Neil Brewin

My son started karate with EMK at the age of four, he was a shy, quite timid boy who was even nervous with some family members. I obviously wanted to increase his confidence and I looked into Karate after seeing adverts for it. I can honestly say that from the first few weeks of joining punchin' pandas his confidence grew very quickly and he came out of his shell of which we we're both very pleased. He started school later that year with ease and now has a large amount of friends and has no trouble with meeting new people (both children and adults) He has now progressed to the leadership class that he thoroughly enjoys. I can only thank the EMK team in helping our son become the confident little boy he has turned into. We look forward to the coming years as Jacob hopefully goes all the way to blackbelt. Thanks again. :)

The girls have enjoyed every minute at EMK. The level of professionalism is exceptional and as a parent I am delighted that they are not only learning skills and discipline but also learning them from people who can genuinely be called role models. Thanks for all your work. 

Mrs. Mitchell

I think punching pandas class is very well ran by all who are involved, my son and daughter have started within weeks of each other and both are always excited and can't wait for their next class many thanks.


I joined EMK in Jan this year aged 38. I had some previous experience but was still nervous going into my first session. I have to say EMK make you feel very welcome and while serious they retain a unique brand of humour. This helps, especially when Mr. Moon is pushing us to our limits. What I value most is the dedication of the instructors. Every move is demonstrated consistently and tirelessly. I may have shed a kilo of skin from my feet but I would thoroughly recommend this to anyone.
