Kelly Bunyan, our Chief Instructor, writes a different lesson plan every week, to feed our members' addiction; the lessons are never predictable nor repetitive.
When our members are asked why they are so dedicated to training, they find that the answer is not so easily conveyed to those who have not yet tried a martial arts class. Loved ones are supportive, but only training peers who have also been bitten by the bug truly 'get' why they are so passionate about the martial artists.
Kelly Fiestas Navas, a Purple Belt, confirms this:
'Most people think it’s the same as going to a gym. Friends have even invited me to go to their gyms. I have tried it, but it was never a satisfying experience. There’s no sense of achievement and progress when training at a gym. I know some people train for fitness, but although that is a great benefit of training, it was never one of my reasons. There’s nothing like the experience of setting a goal and working hard to achieve it, and the exhilaration when you do achieve it. That kind of feeling is amazing. I love that I can share all that with my training peers and that we celebrate each other’s achievements.'
When you are truly hooked, training in the martial arts becomes a way of life, due to the fact that it changes every aspect of your life for the better. Offering much more than just punches and kicks, the martial arts boost confidence and self-esteem, whilst getting you to a whole new level of fitness.
Training in a gym will certainly get you fit, but it will not provide you with the same satisfaction and fire. Our school is so welcoming; the sense of camaraderie between members is palpable.
By training in the martial arts, you will see changes that will last for a lifetime. Keen to unleash your inner martial artist? Book your trial class today to get started.
