Martial arts are not just for kids! Even adults, men and women alike need to improve upon important life skills such as:


    At Bernardo Karate we teach martial arts in a positive and supporting environment. Learning and developing self-discipline in this type of environment leads to improved confidence, focus and perseverance. This, in turn, translates to higher productivity and better relationships at home and at work. Our Adult Bernardo Karate programs help students build a strong foundation of healthy habits and disciplines which helps them to follow through and achieve the goals they set inside and outside of the dojo.


    In our Bernardo Karate classes, Adults are taught how to properly react, respond and recover from their mistakes. Our students who come to class and practice regularly develop resilience and invariably bounce back the fastest after failures or setbacks. All of these things lead to higher confidence, greater willpower and motivation not to quit when things get tough. Developing this skill is imperative to success in all areas of life.


    Developing self-control is another important life skill we focus on in our Adult Bernardo Karate programs. With confidence, you can control your body, emotions and how you react to stressful situations. The daily practices, habits and applications taught in every Bernardo Karate class help each student develop confidence and willpower and a strong, unshakeable belief in who they are and what they are capable of accomplishing.

Here's What Our Members Have to Say!


I have never been in a place where the people were so caring. They have pushed me to a new fitness level and I plan to continue to challenge myself and increase my goals. I recommend to everyone I know.

Jacques Chomiak

Trained here and got up to 2nd degree black belt. Great instructors keep a whole class intense for people with different skill. Every instructor is very adept and knowlegable in forms and technique. Very friendly atmosphere and attending is worth it. Definitely London's best Martial Arts and cardio kickboxing studio!Jacques Chomiak


I’m impressed with the school and staff! The atmosphere is positive and encouraging. I always look forward to my next workout!

Louise Cottrell Cassar

We started karate because my son said Why play with action figures when I can be one?
It's been 2 years and we love it there. My son is a blue belt and my 5 year old daughter is in little dragons. I just joined and am loving the adult classes. I can't wait to start kickboxing!
A family that plays together stays together

Jennifer Watson

My niece and I did the kickboxing cardio class from 6-7pm and had an amazing workout. It was our fist time doing the class and the teacher Leah was great at explaining, Leah and the rest of the class made us feel welcome. We can't wait to join and come to more classes.
Thanks for a great experience.
