My name is David Rogers,
Our classes have transformed the lives of hundreds of children (including my own!) I want to share some of the ways in which martial arts have benefited them and amazed their parents:
Here are some typical stories that we hear all of the time:
“Tracy spends a lot of time on the computer or playing video games. She doesn’t enjoy sports and I am concerned she is unfit for her age.”
“Paul is ‘hyperactive’. He never can sit still or concentrate on what he is doing. He is clever but just can’t focus his energy”
“Jim is shy and lacks confidence; the school bully picks on him, but Jim just doesn’t have the confidence to stand up to him”
“Jean just has no self discipline. She can’t keep her room tidy and is always late with her school work. If I want something done I have to nag her constantly”
Here are just a few of the many benefits kids get from training in the martial arts:
“What is the difference between ‘Mixed Martial Arts’ and other forms?”
In our classes, the children learn to defend themselves against punches and kicks and also at close range or on the ground, which is where most playground fights end up. The confidence they get comes from knowing that they can handle themselves in any situation.
“Aren’t mixed martial arts violent?”
We are committed to teaching traditional martial arts ethics and moralities along with techniques that are realistic and battle tested, so your child will absolutely learn the values of respect, discipline and self control. Our students are NOT violent!
“Is the training dangerous? Will my child get hurt?”
We stress safety in our classes- the floors are padded, we wear protective equipment and ‘full contact’ is something that the students practise on pads and bags- not on each other! Of course, to really learn to defend yourself there needs to be a bit of ‘rough and tumble’- this is healthy and is a part of learning to deal with physical force. Injuries are very rare in our classes compared to many other sports like football!
Your child’s safety is our priority.
“What age is best to start?”
We take children from age 5, but the important thing is that our classes are AGE APPROPRIATE. In some schools young children train with older children and even adults! This would never happen in, say, maths class so why do it in martial arts? We understand the psychology and developmental needs of different ages and ensure that whatever your child’s age, they are getting the most appropriate training.
“Will my child stick with the classes?”
Like learning a foreign language or a musical instrument- martial arts takes time and practise. Luckily, our classes are a lot of fun, and most children really enjoy the training and don’t want to miss a lesson!
“Can we just try out the school for a while to see how my child gets on?”
