United Response, in association with Abel Karate and their Be Inspired project are proud to present Teddingtons very first Wheelchair Karate class.
We have been working with Abel Karate for around 2 years now and found that there is a huge interest from people of mixed abilities but unfortunately there are limited classes for people in wheelchairs. As a result of our research, United Response will be hosting a 6 week taster course of wheelchair karate.
Internationally known, Sensei Paul Abel, has been practicing the art of karate since the age of 7 and is now a 3rd Dan (3 levels above a black belt WOW). Paul has won multiple awards and has represented England in many national and international competitions, including the commonwealth games and the British Karate Championships, which he won both.
Since 2011 Abel Karate have been running the Be Inspired Project, a program aimed at supporting people with learning disabilities to develop karate and fitness skills. Now working with UR, Paul has developed a project aimed at those in wheelchairs.
The Project starts on Monday 3rd June, at 12:30-1:30pm. The project is designed for anybody with limited mobility and is open to anybody who fits this category.
So come and join us for the first karate class of its kind. Who knows you could be the next commonwealth gold medalist.
