Additional Support Needs – Karate Taster Session

Active Schools would like to let you know about an exciting opportunity coming to children and young people in Edinburgh. In partnership with Scottish Karate Federation, Dalry Karate Group and Lothian Disability Sport we are developing an Additional Support Needs karate club.

The first phase of this will be the delivery of karate taster sessions for primary and secondary pupils. These sessions are open to all disability groups – physical, learning and sensory impairments.

Venue: (EN)gage Sports Centre, Edinburgh Napier University, Sighthill Campus, EH11 4BN. This is an accessible venue.

Date and Time: Taster session, Saturday 3rd June 11am – 1pm.
Primary 11.00-12.00am
Secondary 12.00-1.00pm

Club sessions will happen every Saturday thereafter 11.15am – 12.15pm at (EN)gage Sports Centre.

The sessions will be delivered by qualified karate coaches who have training and experience of working with children with additional support needs. The maximum participant numbers per session will be 15 children/young people.

The sessions are all about having fun and giving participants the chance to try out Karate, no prior experience is necessary.

We would welcome parents to stay and watch sessions and meet karate coaches.

If your child is interested in attending the free taster session please phone me to book a place and I will forward an application form via email or take your details over the phone. Please note there are limited spaces therefore places will be allocated on a first come first served basis.

Should you require any further information please do not hesitate to contact me, Jill Coleman 07920768288,
