When I moved to Darlington back in 2002, I went round all the Karate Clubs in Darlington to find one that taught traditional martial arts with all the associated drills. After a couple of training sessions with Sensei Bateman I knew I had found the right club. Most of our children have attended the club for varying durations. Now our youngest is progressing in the junior class. If you are serious looking for a family school this is the one for you!
