Welcome to The New Forest Martial Arts Website
Don't just do it, live it !
New Forest Karate was founded in
1994 by Sensei Dave Crawford
and Sensei Ellie
Bainbridge and is now known as New Forest Martial Arts
New Forest Martial Arts offers a wide variety of
classes around the New Forest and Southampton areas including
Applemore,Hythe, Blackfield, Marchwood, Totton (Hounsdown) &
Our club is friendly with experienced approachable instructors
and offers something for everyone. We offer classes in Karate,
Jiu Jitsu and Tai Chi, having been established for many years we
bring vast experience in dealing with both adults and children
with a wide range of needs, we are determined to help children
and adults learn to defend themselves and feel it has never been
more necessary than it is today.
Karate is primarily about
defence but we also insist on discipline in the dojo (training
hall), newcomers will be eased in to the etiquette required of
them but within a few weeks most juniors will settle in and have
a good idea of how things are run.
