About Martial Arts for Life

Martial Arts For Life is an independent organisation dedicated to teaching safe, traditional, practical and fun Karate and martial arts in the Yorkshire region. We are led by Master Janet McKenna (5th Dan) and her team of qualified, professional instructors.

People who are new to Karate (or student returning to Martial Arts training) are sometimes nervous about what is involved, whether they are fit enough and how they will fit into our classes. Fortunately, Martial Arts for Life run open, affordable, friendly and welcoming classes for adults and children alike.

We practice a safe, non-contact form of Karate; our professional instructors are fully qualified, insured trained in basic first aid and DBS checked.

Our classes are suitable for people of any fitness level, including those who are looking to get fit for the very first time! Our students frequently tell us what a great full-body workout they get from our classes. Beginners often comment on how welcoming the club is and nerves vanish within minutes of walking through the door.
