About Invicta

Welcome to Invicta where our aim is to help you be the best you can be in life through Karate

My name is Toby Price, a full time Martial Artist and I own, run and teach classes at Invicta Karate Academy. I am a former Southern Areas Champion, National Champion, England Squad and World Cup team member.

Why Invicta?

Our Academy is dedicated to helping you become the best you can be in life through Karate. Our students have received the benefits of our programs, whether it be through focus, discipline, spirit, confidence, performance under pressure or even losing weight.

We believe that Karate is about more than just getting the next belt. Progressing in Karate is a process. Building the physical skills, mental capabilities, firing up the spirit and connecting it all together takes time. When I started Karate in 1982 I was never promised a Black Belt, I was challenged and guided to it. At Invicta, we still do the same we don’t promise Black Belts to anyone. Come to lessons, train, learn, don’t give up and we will do everything we can to get you there.

Karate is not for everyone. It is a long physical and mental adventure that builds resilience and endurance. If you achieve Black Belt you will experience a feeling like no other

Student pathway

Whether you start in Little Tigers, Beginners, Adults or return to Karate in Higher Grades, all students follow the same pathway but at their individual pace. We build steadily on the three foundations of traditional Karate; Kihon, Kata and Kumite. Kihon (basics) will give your body memory the techniques, work all your muscle groups and improve your posture and flexibility. Kata (forms) will improve focus, allow mindfulness to enter your training and piece the techniques together. Kumite (sparring) will slowly build you towards applying the techniques in a flowing fashion and teach you distance, timing and resilience.

We have on average 3-4 gradings per year however grading is not automatic and depends on the Students progress. Each belt brings new challenges and every student develops at their own pace. Each grading is conducted by an external, authorised and official examiner from Japan Karate Association England to maintain high standards within the Academy. These Examiners are minimum 4th Dan JKA.
