WHAT IS DART KARATE?
Affiliated to the World Combat Association, Defence Attack & Resolution Tactics (DART) is a practical karate system designed to develop and enhance the necessary survival skills to avoid, deter, negate, survive and escape violence.
DART Karate evolved from a Shotokan Karate base over a number of years from applying research in the following subject areas to effective martial arts techniques and training: Sports Science, Psychology, Violent Crime Statistics, High Contact Pressure Testing of drills, and the Law.
- new friends and fun
- effective self protection and self defence skills
- a safe and supportive training environment
- increased fitness
- improved self confidence, flexibility and coordination
TRADITIONAL OR MODERN KARATE?
DART Karate classes may look modern to the untrained eye, but they are actually very traditional. Many karate systems wear white suits and follow a fairly recent Japanese tradition. DART Karate classes are orientated towards self defence, and follow an older Okinawan tradition of innovation. We wear a lighter uniform to allow us greater flexibility with training equipment such as protective armour.
DART self protection classes at the RGS are held
every Wednesday after school 1555 - 1710 by the Climbing Wall. The
majority of our training involves paired martial arts exercises, and each team
of students are coached at a pace appropriate to their own training needs.
Students learn high quality self protection tactics and practise effective
self defence drills with partners.
