Why Learn Marital Arts?

Vital for all men, women and children in today's environment is a knowledge of self defence. We cannot ignore the growing crime statistics reported daily in our newspapers and acts of violence are on the increase. We owe it to ourselves and our children to ensure that in the event of an attack we can protect ourselves adequately. The confidence that develops within a Martial Arts student is invaluable in all aspects of everyday life. It is for everyone and there is something to be gained by any student who is dedicated and willing to learn.

Is It Suitable For Children?

As well as an enjoyable leisure activity, Martial Arts is an excellent and rewarding pursuit for children. The discipline required through the study of Martial Arts will encourage your child to become more responsible, disciplined and self confident. A specialised and structured syllabus of Martial Arts techniques is taught to children in a safe environment by fully qualified instructors. Children can acquire and improve their co-ordination, concentration, self-esteem and self-control. Add this to self defence and fitness benefits and you can see why Martial Arts has become popular with children.

What are our objectives?

Our objectives are quite simple, to attain real excellence. This could enable you to become a champion or achieve a black belt or both. To achieve this, we highly recommend that you attend training at least once a week.
