Greetings Ka-Zimba family! By the power and guidance of the Creator we are delighted to bring you a new class in `Ka-Zimba Ngoma (Ijakadi Tenia Dudu ` – The Fighting Arts of Nubian People)

We are very honoured to be collaborating with Baba Ayo Omoagbametala from ‘Wamikampt’ who will be balancing the session with Yoruba Language, Cosmology and Nutritional Health.
This is a very auspicious time for us to be beginning again and we welcome you to join us on this Mind, Spirit, Body and Soul journey.

For those who don`t know…. What is Ka-Zimba Ngoma?
Ka-Zimba Ngoma is an Afrikan/Caribbean Ijakadi(Martial art) comprised of dance like forms, dynamic, often acrobatic movements and a visual display of coordination, intention and a full expression of self. Ka-Zimba Ngoma, allows us to explore the primary movements and instincts of humans and animals alike and incorporate this with live African drumming, song, oratory skills and percussion.
The main aim of our practice is for the students to learn to embrace and express, their true nature and embody spontaneous complementary movements as a response to a partners form… Witness here an art form that is an active application of the principles of mind body and spirit acting in harmony with the will of the student and in dynamic exchange with the (opponent).
Ka-Zimba Ngoma was re-birthed in this country by our two Mfundishi (Grandmasters) Hamzah Muhammed & Equiano Chatawa in 1977.

Sending you all acres of full health and abundant vitality...

An Introduction to Ka-Zimba Ngoma (The fighting dance of the Nubian Warriors)

This 6 week introduction course aims at enhancing the creative potential, self-confidence and the self-esteem of each participant. The roots of these classes stem from our deep connection to African/Caribbean/Moorish culture and the wonders of nature. We explore the primary movements and instincts of humans and animals alike and incorporate this with live African drumming and percussion. Participants are taught both simple and complex movements, from self-defence moves to Zulu Warrior steps and Gum Boot dancing.

Ka-Zimba Ngoma enhances many levels of individual and group communication, facilitating lifelong learning and self-development. This class is not simply intended for entertainment or exhibition, but more so as a tool for self-transformation: an alternative and efficient means of keeping emotionally/spiritually aware, and mentally and physically fit.

The class is open to adults as well as young people between 11-16yrs with parental induction.

It is suitable for all fitness levels, though if you have a specific injury or concern - do contact the instructor Asafo Gyata (07960 742691 or via email... asafogyata@gmail.com

There are limited places on this course and pre-booking is highly recommended. As with all CoResist events, there are bursary places and young person (under 18) discounts available to ensure that no-one is financially excluded.

Full 6-Week Course: £55/£45 Conc.
