Our first martial arts experience in Grove and Wantage area. Fantastic family run business but so fucced on training and ethos of karate is self defense. It instils a very good foundation in any child/adult when it comes to facing crime or similar situation. Would highly highly recommend this for self defense karate. All sensais and senpais are amazing and great role models. Thank you GMA for everything 🙏
My son joined Grove Martial Arts when he turned 4. He is so excited to go every Saturday morning to learn something new and have fun at the same time. We can also take him to sessions throughout the week for no additional cost which is a bonus! The team at Grove Martial Arts are so friendly and welcoming and really take the time to make sure your child gets the most out of the session.
This is by far the BEST club my 6 year old has ever done. He concentrates (more than I have EVER seen before), takes it seriously and has fun at the same time. He continually asks me if it is Karate day! The instructors are fantastic and he loves working towards new belts. It is also fantastic value for money as you can go 1,2,3 or 4 times a week all for the same price! Honestly, I would 100 per cent recommend to anyone. I am SO pleased he did his trial. If you are considering it, go and have a go as I am pretty sure you won’t regret it.
My 6 year old loved going to Grove Martial Arts. He learnt so much. Everyone is so welcoming. Compared to other after school clubs, this is such Good value for money. We hope to join up again soon! (NB we stopped due to personal reasons)
Our Grandson, age 6, loves GMA. The 4 free trial classes are so helpful, and for the monthly fee, he trains 3 times a week, and it included his Gi. On my first visit, I was so impressed with the way the class was run and how calmly a difficult child was dealt with while the other children were guided away so the class could continue with absolutely no fuss. The children's focus is guided towards defence rather than attack initially, and this is taught in a fun way and taught in an age appropriate approach. It was and is lovely to see a large group of young children both fully engaged and enjoying the class but also learning some very important lessons about self-defense and self-protection. A big thumbs up. And if you are considering GMA, then don't hesitate to come see. Highly recommend.
