HISTORY

THROUGHOUT THE HISTORY OF KARATE, THE WORLD HAS TO COME TO KNOW MANY STRONG AND INNOVATIVE TEAMS.

Veras Academy was established in 2004 by Sensei Raphael Veras, who since then has been focusing on teaching children aged 4 and above. In 2008 Sensei Veras began teaching adults classes, because parents watching their children training wanted to take part, some to improve their confidence and fitness. Some however liked the discipline of his training and consider it the best way to keep motivated.

In May 2014 Sensei Raphael has become the Chief Instructor of his own association Veras Academy Karate Association, which is affiliated to the English Karate Federation the only governing body affiliated to the World Karate Federation. Veras Academy’s clubs aim to show their students how karate can change their quality of life. Among the positive points are: self-confidence, emotional control, increased flexibility, improved fitness plus much more. With this understanding students can train happily, aching, but pleasant.

Some students take quicker to learning more than others, because we know everyone is different and progression varies according to each individual’s dedication. The Academy seeks to maintain a close relationship between teacher, students and parents. Raphael Veras believes students and parents feel more comfortable and confident this way; students get a better understanding and motivation while training and finds it easier to socialise before and after classes and parents feel free to express themselves in friendly conversation.

Veras Academy distributes this union and still maintains the principle of Karate inside and outside of the Dojo because there are rules that no students must never forget.

WE SHALL SEEK PERFECTION OF CHARACTER
WE SHALL BE FAITHFUL IN OUR STUDY
WE SHALL ENDEAVOR TO CULTIVATE COURAGE AND TENACITY
WE SHALL RESPECT OTHERS
WE SHALL REFRAIN FROM VIOLENT BEHAVIOR
