WHY NOT ENROL AS A FAMILY (Discounts may apply)
In addition to the benefits described above TISKA Karate is
something that parents and their children can do together.
There are many examples where parents and kids have gone
all the way to black belt together and take the belt test on
the same day. I always encourage parents to give it a try,
particularly those who generously give their time to bring their
kids along, and find themselves sitting through classes week
after week kicking no more than their feet.
Maidenhead club is one of the association’s many successful clubs and offers training sessions each week and is run by the Chief Instructor of TISKA Mr G. Sahota
Gursharan Sahota was born in Kenya, East Africa but moved to the UK at the age of 12. He took up Karate at the age of 14 in the local Bedford club and was awarded black belt 1st dan (shodan) four years later.
Now an 8th Dan, Gursharan has competed in a multitude of kata and kumite events, many at national and international level. But the most significant event in his career was the visit he made in 1984 to Japan. There, he fulfilled a great ambition by training in a Japanese dojo under the instruction of Sensei Hirokazu Kanazawa.
This experience proved to be a turning point for Gursharan. On his return to England, he realised the trip had been the inspiration he needed to dedicate his future to training and teaching karate as a way of life.
