health and fitness of their students in a scientific, safe and fun environment.
Since its inception in 1987, it has conquered the area of Martial Arts in Abu Dhabi
by bringing in the professional Instructors, well-maintained Dojos (Training Areas)
and a reputation to bring the best performance out of their students.

Abu Dhabi with more than 1500 active students. More than 19000 students have been

and around Abu Dhabi. We also provide transportation for the students.
Children’s Karate Classes– We conduct the classes twice a week. Our syllabus are
tailored to suit beginners as well as serious tournament trainers. Many additional
skills like somersault, tumbling, gymnastic stretching, front & back midair rolls
and many special skills are included in the syllabus to motivate the students in
all kind of sports besides karate. We also conduct special classes for weak students
free of charges on Tuesdays.
Adult’s Karate Classes – We conduct separate classes for adults twice a week. The
bane of implacable body of an adult will be mitigated in the executive classes conducted
by the club. Many Yoga exercises are included in the training sessions, which may
help one to keep up a relaxed life style.
Kobudo Classes - We conduct the classes once a week. Kobudo is an ancient martial
art originated in Okinawa (Japan), the place known as the Cradle of Martial Arts.
It is taught in very few countries in the world due to the unavailability of proficient
instructors. We are proud to have our chief instructor, Ali Mohammed Renshi, a weapon
expert and one of the few masters in the world who holds a 6th Degree Black Belt
in Kobudo. We teach weapons like BO (Long Staff), Nunchako (the most useful hand
held weapon in the world), Sai (an ancient traditional weapon), Tonfa (the weapon
which police forces use in most developed countries) Kama, Chux, Sanchako etc.,
which will truly challenge one’s martial arts abilities.
