Self Defence

Many students come to train with us to learn self defence. When people first start training in martial arts they think that this is just a physical skills, As time goes on they realise that real self defence done correctly avoids conflict. To help our students understand this we have something called the ABC Of conflict avoidance And in brief it follows these ideas
A Avoid potentially dangerous situations
B Be calm and breath
C Communicate with confidence
D Don’t make it worse by arguing or fighting

Leadership Skills

One of the most fun leadership skills that we work in our classes is perseverance, The ability to keep going until you succeed.
When successful people are interviewed about how they succeeded They often say that the Character trait that help in the most was perseverance. As a student works towards their blackbelt , developing in them the belief that practice and not giving up is the only way to achieve success is very important! It also means they can use this belief in other parts of their life to be successful!

Student success! Improving ‘Good Manners’

It was great to see so many of my students, Completing their ‘good manners’Project yesterday. We had some terrific feedback from our parents. Improving martial arts skills for students is great fun, But improving life skills is even more rewarding!. Well done everybody I’m very proud of you.

Martial arts really is suitable for all ages

I often ask Adults if they would like to try the martial arts, Often their reaction is yes I would love to but I’m too old!!
I then tell them that they aren’t, I’m not sure they believe me. So I thought I’d let you know about one on you was recruits, His name is George ,He recently passed his first belt exam and is looking forward to practising With his new sparring gear!
Oh and by the way George is 84 years old!!!!
Initially I was a little bit worried about George in my martial art class, I’m so glad he decided to join, I find Him inspiration everytime he’s in class
Well done George
