Business overview

Martial Arts - Judo and Karate classes in a family friendly environment.

Yawara Martial Arts is run by Sensei Dave Clarke and we have clubs in Wandsworth, Woking and Lightwater. Sensei Clarke started training Martial Arts (Judo) at the age of 6 in 1969. He started training with Sensei Frank Perry at the Honbu in Sandycombe Road, Kew, Surrey. Sensei Clarke is a 4th Dan in Judo, 3rd Dan in Karate and 4th Dan in Ju-Jutsu. He is a full time Martial Arts instructor and is therefore able to put 100% into his teaching.

Our Wandsworth club is a family orientated club run by professional instructors. Karate and Judo are the ideal sports for kids wanting to build self-confidence, balance, co-ordination, discipline and courtesy, while learning basic Martial Arts self-defence skills. The Wandsworth club in West London is located at the Wandle Recreation Centre on Mapleton Road SW18 4DN. In Wandsworth we run sessions in Judo & Karate for juniors at all levels where your child (or children) can learn the basics of Martial Arts in a safe and friendly environment.

Confidence building

My son was very shy when he was younger, but since he joined the club in Wandsworth he has really matured and is now a confident little boy. Karate classes really help building self confidence and Sensei Dave is very good with the children keeping a strict discipline without being too tough and still having time time for fun and games.
