Beginners class is for students of all ages and is meant as a catch all for families who wish to train (parents and children together), adults who are taking up karate for the first time and children who are doing extra lessons in order to grade or because they are unable to make it to their usual class.

Beginners classes are suitable for white - black belts.

The dojo (training centre) is organised with white belts to the right and more senior grades to the left, as shown in the diagram.

As a White Belt you will be instructed to line up on the left side of the hall as you face the instructor.
