This age group are learning to be young adults. The stresses and dangers in their life are ever changing. They will be joining the secondary school, an exciting but scary time. It’s also often the age where parents start allowing their children to go out without so much supervision.

We believe in preparing our students both physically and mentally for these new challenges. With this in mind, our sessions combine not only highly effective martial arts and self-defense techniques but also and more importantly the correct mindset to decide if and when to use them. We strongly believe that ‘prevention is better than cure’. As a result, understanding the psychology of personal protection is just as important, if not more so than the hands-on stuff.

Coaches are also on hand to give advice to students on bullying and other safety issues.

The benefits to your child’s development are endless. They build relationships with their peers and learn to become positive leaders and role models. It is really important to ensure students become valued members of the community and not part of Britain’s growing anti-social behaviour problem.

Martial arts is a positive and constructive use of leisure time. The coaching team draw experience from working with the police, armed forces and youth workers. We believe in instilling a strong moral code that will benefit every aspect of a young person’s life. We are a multi-cultural centre and teach the importance of respect for oneself and others.
