I offer private lessons for individuals and semi-private lessons for small groups of 2 to 6 people. Whether your looking to hone in on certain aspects of your training, preparing for an up-coming grading or maybe you want to enter competitions, a lesson plan can be made to accommodate your needs. I can guarantee you’ll leave the dojo energised and enlightened with a higher knowledge of your karate training.
The cost of a group lesson is £60.00 per hour, £100 for 2 hours; this includes hall hire and travel expenses. So the more people who train, the less the individual has to pay. The cost of a private 1-2-1 is £35.00 per hour which is also inclusive of hall hire.
Ideally Private Lessons have to be booked and paid for in full 1 week in advance. This simply allows us time to chat about what you require and a complete lesson plan can be made so you get full benefit. Private lessons can be available most day times throughout the week. evenings would have to be worked around the classes that I already run, but we can be flexible. Hope this is helpful to you. If you have any further questions please don’t hesitate to get in contact.
Lessons prices are inclusive of being in Derby. If you would prefer me to travel to you this can also be arranged. Prices are negotiable, if you would like more information please contact me and we can discuss the details.
“I initially met John at an Iain Abernethy seminar and was immediately impressed by this powerhouse of a man. It became apparent during the seminar that this was someone with whom I would have to seek out and train under privately, so I did. John’s presence is equally matched by his seemingly endless patience during 1:1’s as he seeks to put the student first, transcending style and ultimately make Karate a very personal practice to that individual. For anyone seeking to improve their traditional Karate – regardless of lineage – I cannot recommend John highly enough.”
