March 26th sees our first self defence course for our older junior group (11-14 years). The aim of the first part of the course covers verbal and non-verbal strategies for dealing with bullying situations: positive posture, confidence and how to diffuse difficult situations.
In January and February we hosted our first round of self defence classes for our Little Monkeys and our younger juniors. Led by Sensei Phil and Sensei Marco, children were taught how to assert themselves using verbal commands and body language. Completion of the course was rewarded with a self defence patch (that can be worn on uniform trousers) and extra reward stars and a special gift of a reflective Martial Arts Place slap band!
The courses proved a huge success, with many parents booking their children onto the second part of the course. Each session costs £10 and are booking up quickly, to book a place for your child call us or speak to your Sensei.
