Great exercise for the whole family and excellent instruction from professionally trained experts. Can’t say enough good about these centres. It’s not just karate and it teaches youngsters important life skills and upholds strong values. More...

I began one year ago very sceptical after 40 years playing rugby, but soon became hooked! The quality of coaching, the friends/family I have made over this time has been a great benefit to my quality of life and wellbeing, being diagnosed as pre diabetic after 6 months of hard work this was reversed I’m fitter, slimmer and so much happier than I was previously! I feel very much indebted to all the instructors in Prestwich for helping me become a healthier and more contented person!!! More...

I joined in May and attend 2 classes a week. The Nelsons are a family of 4 very dedicated Black Belts, who share their knowledge & experience with all their students, offering support & encouragement in every lesson, therefore making it enjoyable. I am now, after 3 months, slowly starting to see & feel the benefits & would recommend anyone to give it a try, you won't be disappointed. More...

Me and my 5 year old daughter attended the class at the Maccabi on Saturday. The whole Nelson family was there to welcome us into the class! The class was exciting, energetic and the moves were really well explained. The family did lots of demonstrations to help us understand WHY you need to move your body in a certain way, this was really helpful. I had mentioned to Mr Nelson that my daughter has moderate hearing loss and I noticed that he often stood close to her and got eye contact which really helped her focus. The kids in the class seemed to love it as well as the adults. The instructors were BRILLIANT with the most shy members of the group and managed to encourage engagement without being at all pushy. The venue itself is great, the lady on reception at the Maccabi was really friendly. Overall, the class was spot on. I would definitely recommend it. More...

I type this on the day my son gained his blue belt and i've watched him over the last 7 months as his confidence ,stamina ,strength and fitness has grown . The Nelson's are not only excellent teachers they are also very supportive and encouraging, helping them to believe in their abilities , they have created a very friendly environment where everyone has become friends and supports and encourages each other, making the journey to black belt a very enjoyable one even for me the spectator.
I most definitely made the right choice for my son.

This review is for Family Martial Arts Birthday parties! My son had his Sixth birthday here and it was a really easy, fun and affordable experience. He and his friends loved it, boys and girls alike and it was great to watch. The Nelson family was so sweet and kind to all the kids.

It began with a quick warm up, then there was a lesson on how to do simple moves.

The kids were all having a great time learning and practicing and then doing a fun obstacle course. All of the kids were engaged - whether they had seen Ninja Turtle fans or Frozen fanatics!

This was great for our group of mostly four year olds because they could listen and follow instruction. The package is for up to 30 I think but we only had 22 and it was good number. It was well paced, not intimidating and they emphasised that it is only for self defence, and it was about respect.

With 20 minutes to go, they stopped and tucked into a buffet (provided by ourselves), and our Son then got to cut his Birthday cake with a Samurai sword - he was beside himself. To finish all kids received a medal and a certificate.

The party is an hour and a half which is just long enough to hold interest and not cross into "little kid crankiness" territory. Also very affordable at about half the cost of parties at all the other sort of kid places like the usual soft play areas etc. Highly recommended.

So I decided to take me 3yr old along to karate. I got lots of mixed reactions from friends, what will she learn there? She's only 3! Even my husband was a bit wary. Well we proved them wrong! My little girl is quite shy and it takes her a while to join in, Mr and Mrs Nelson fully understood this and there was no pressure on her at all. Anyway to cut a long story short my little lady got star of the class yesterday for joining in her exercise class with such enthusiasm and passion! She has never joined in before and I put this down to Tiger tots! So if your having second thoughts go with your heart come and give it a try it's worked for us! ����� More...

Highly recommended!

I've been attending Tang Soo Do classes twice a week with the Nelson family for just under half a year now, and I have to admit that I can't even remember what life was like beforehand! Since joining the training centre I have made good friends, learnt invaluable training skills, self-belief in my abilities and therefore a huge boost in confidence, and a change to my fitness regime (I didn't need to particularly lose weight but it is helping me to become strong, tone all over and to exercise outside of class more easily).

The Nelson's passion for Tang Soo Do is apparent in their teaching, and this overall makes the whole experience fun and interesting in every single way - keep it up, I can't wait to see what the next 12 months will bring!

My 7 year old daughter absolutely loves her Martial Arts and I have found Mr and Mrs Nelson to be very helpful and caring. Before she started my little one a bit jittery but thanks to Mr Nelson she feels a lot more confident and her kicks have improved. Absolutely smashing club. Highly recommended! More...

My little girl been coming to your Saturday morning classes and what a difference I've seen! It's not all about learning to kick and punch either! Her confidence has grown so much as well as her ability to concentrate, focus, listen and follow commands. She was really shy when she first started and wasn't used to listening to anyone else but me and her dad. She absolutely loves The Nelson family who just know how to act with every individual child in the room! I'm so glad I decided to bring her along! Would recommend them to anyone ��� More...
