These non-contact classes are held twice a week and tap into the many documented benefits of martial arts training. Exercise, mindfulness, breathing, balance, muscle tone, movement and mobility and cognitive processing work done to each participants own capabilities but in a social environment.
Neuro-Karate is different to other exercise programs for because it’s tailored to each participants individual profile. Research has shown the positive benefits exercise can have for people older people but when the exercise is tailored and neuro-active, the brain is encouraged to naturally re-wire itself and the positive results are amplified.
Neuro-Karate sessions are non-combat workouts, meaning participants won’t be fighting another person. Classes typically include exercises that help you improve hand-eye coordination, agility, speed, endurance, and strength utilising the traditional methods of karate.
Sessions will be conducted as a 10 week program with the first session commencing on the 12th July 2021.
