The Karate Youth Initiative
Reg. Charity No. SC039618
Dunfermline Police Station
Thursday Nights 7pm—8.30pm
The Karate Youth Initiative is the only free club in the UK and teaches upwards of 120 kids and adults at Dunfermline Police Station on a Thursday night. Here’s how YOU can get involved.
'What is it? Simple, it's karate.
How much does it cost?....absolutely nothing.
Karate, like many sports, can be very expensive costing a hefty £500 per year for each student.
So if you, your brother or sister, mum or dad wanted to do it, it's often a big no-no - unless you have won the lottery.
We decided to try to raise funds so we could teach people free of charge.
This includes those who could not afford to join a mainstream club, or youths who may be on the verge of getting into bother with the police or at school.
People who might get into bother simply "cos we have nothing to do" (does this sound like someone you know?), or are perhaps just a bit of a handful at home!
If this is you or your child and you want to build up your fitness, need some direction and self control in your life then why not get involved?
Set up in 2005, the Karate Youth Initiative is now a registered charity and we even supply free karate suits to new members.
We're aiming to teach people from 6 -100-years-old the traditional art of JKA (Japan Karate Association).
What makes us unique is that this is karate free of all charges.
Who knows, you might be the next Scottish champion!
The Karate Youth Initiative takes place each Thursday at Dunfermline Police Station, 7-8.30pm.
