We aren’t just one club, due to the number of clubs we have we are an association which is affiliated to the English Karate Federation (EKF) the governing body for karate.

How old do I have to be to join CMAKarate?
We look at children from the age of 5 years and the four taster lessons allows us and them to decide if they enjoy karate. There is no upper age limit for karate.
