Wandsworth Prep School encourages and supports pupils to be involved in a range of athletic, artistic and service activities and celebrates each pupil’s success and uniqueness.
As part of our broad extra-curricular offering, a number of pupils enjoy taking part in Karate Club, which are run on Monday afternoons by Sensei Dave Clarke, who started training Martial Arts (Judo) at the age of six in 1969 and now runs Yawara Martial Arts. Sensei Clarke is a 4th Dan in Judo, 3rd Dan in Karate and 4th Dan in Ju-Jutsu and is a full time Martial Arts instructor.
Martial Arts benefits children in a number of ways:
Boosting Socialization Skills
Encouraging Physical Activity
Learning to Set and Achieve Goals
Instilling a Sense of Respect
Encouraging Non-Violent Conflict Resolution
Improving Listening Skills
Developing Teamwork Skills
Improvement in Other Areas of Life
