Karate

Karate is a Japanese (Okinawa) system of unarmed combat using the hands and feet to deliver and block blows, widely practised as a sport. Karate may be defined as a weaponless means of self defence. It consists of dynamic offensive and defensive techniques using all parts of the body to their maximum advantage. PCYC provides experienced and qualified instructors for all of our programs, and offers grading events as a recognition system.


Hapkido

Hapkido is a type of Korean martial art which focuses on defence rather than offense, and is designed to neutralise an opponent through a range of techniques. Hapkido is a discipline which is also designed to clarify and calm the spirit, and those who practice hapkido are also attempting to develop themselves as individuals. PCYC offers hapkido programs with highly qualified instructors, with years of experience teaching and perfecting the art form.
