The Training Environment

We teach in schools, recreational centres and community facilities within the Greater Manchester area, every night of the week and at weekends so there's a suitably timed class out there for everyone! [Find your nearest class...]

Many people are apprehensive about joining a karate club because perhaps they feel they are too unfit/weak/old/large etc. to do karate. Here are Cobra Karate, we would like to reassure you that we are open to ALL and we will never discriminate on the grounds of age, sex, ethnicity, religious beliefs or physical limitations.

In the event of an existing illness or injury, it is always advisable to consult your doctor/GP before commencing any new physical fitness regime.


We encourage families to train together including children and adults. Family training encourages co-operation, teamwork and shared values. We offer substantial discounts when two or more members of the same family train together.

Whilst offering families of parents and children the opportunity to train together, we have classes which have add-on second classes that run afterwards that are geared up towards developing older students and advanced grades. We also operate a special class that is open to 3rd kyu brown belts and above by instructor invitation only.

Please note that children under 4 years of age are not currently permitted to train with Cobra Karate because adequate insurance is unavailable below this age threshold.


enviro2.jpgWe love the karate we teach and hope you will love it as much as we do. However, we never lose sight of the fact that to the majority of our students it is a hobby which you chose to do for fun, just like any other sport. We are relaxed about your training schedule and we will work hard to ensure you enjoy training at our club regardless of how often you can make it.

As you progress on your journey to black belt and beyond, your milestones are rewarded with coloured belts, known as kyu grades. To progress through these grades, you will be assesed by a panel of instructors in a small group environment. We will monitor your input at these gradings thoroughly and fairly to ensure that the colour of belt around your waist accurately reflects your development in skills, technique, discipline and mental attitude. We commit to giving each and every student thorough fedback on their grading assesments - what they did well, and what they need to work on. [Read more about our gradings...]
