How We Teach
The priority of this dojo, is to produce the best results possible. Therefore we have a class structure designed to suit and drive the ability of all students whatever your experience may be. The levels are beginner, intermediate and ultimately the Black belt/Instructor level. These are always energetically applied sessions of martial arts combat learning, tailored to match your relevant ability and experience.
Students here have the possibility of progressing onward and upwards to the Black belt sessions, as for the most keen this can become a life study, as it is for your instructor. Self defence is always on the agenda, so for those with a less time available, who just want the basics, the beginner class will suit this need for as long as you wish to train with us. We can advise you upon your options when you call to discuss your training needs.
Smaller group training and also some one to one slots are available, though these are subject to availability and only for the most keen of students.
All students here pay attention to a system of conduct around the Dojo, which allows training to be approached respectfully and in a controlled manner, with the whole class moving forward in their learning, with a shared energy and focus. Here we believe through many years of experience that a disciplined mind will always serve you better in an environment of potential threat, therefore we encourage this mindset during training. Keeping your cool under pressure is always a good idea. Though so is having the skillsets to get you out of trouble, when no other option remains.
All sessions last an hour, and it is the task of this schools instructors to make sure that in leaving the Dojo, you leave with your enthusiasm for training enhanced by each experience.
Here we believe in the principles of active participation and dialogue to enable development and eventually personal expression. The more that you engage with the subject the more the subject engages with you. All students here develop their Skill set, and push themselves to reach their potential, though with our different training options we can find the class that suits the speed of your progression.
