Service Description

What to expect: Our senior classes are very friendly and informal and everyone calls each other by their first name including me, your Instructor, Ian. We start with a quick, warm-up to ensure our bodies are ready for the training to follow. We will then start training, working on our monthly theme from our syllabus including such things as personal safety, awareness, avoidance, confidence, dissuasion, escaping dangerous situations, managing personal space, pre-emptive striking (when it is legal and acceptable to do so), adrenaline and fear (controlling and utilising), striking (punching, kicking, power slapping, improved power generation, elbows, knees, head), escaping from grips and holds, weapons (awareness, defence and the law) and more. You will be taught at your own level, whether you are new to martial arts or more experienced in a friendly, safe manner (Please don’t worry, you will NOT be sparring with anyone on your first session, or even in further sessions until such time as you and your instructor both agree that you are ready and happy to do so, and even then this will only be done in a safe, progressive manner with the appropriate safety sparring equipment). If you are finding anything difficult and your partner can’t help you please just ask and I will help you. Everyone, including me, was a beginner once and I will never forget this so I will do all I can to make your classes an enjoyable learning experience. We sometimes find people are nervous and worried about their first class but I assure you there is no need to be. It will be fun, safe and if there is anything you don't feel happy doing during the class just let me know and we will find something else for you to do, or you can watch until you feel happy to join in again.
