The First Session
Bring a drink, towel, comfortable clothing, maybe a friend and we’ll do the rest.You will spend time with your new teacher prior to the session, who will explain the activity to you and register and induct you for your free session.
Classes typically last 60/90 minutes and are suitable for all.
The classes comprise of 8 phased elements which develop your Flexibility, Skill, Balance, Speed, Agility and Power.
You’ll be guided through a nice, easy warm-up which over time will help improve your flexibility.
After which, you will practice controlling and counter techniques as a group.
Then you will move on to rehearsing the techniques with a training partner.
To test the mechanics of the technique, you will now apply it to apparatus.
Finally, to the close the Self Defence session, you will have free-time technique application – before a brief wind-down with a stretch.
That then leads to the next part of the training segment – our strength and conditioning programme (optional) – with body & free weights.
On completion, light stretch with lowering of heart rate – you can now return home with moves to practice for your next session.
It has long been argued that through study of the martial arts, people develop a measurable sense of accomplishment and a mastery of mind over body contributing to greater self-esteem.
