Mums and dads, our 8 to 10 year olds self-defence/groundwork course is taking place on Saturday 20th October.
Places are limited so call the Dojo now for more information or to book.
It’s almost time for the next of our TMAP ‘Beat the Bullies’, self defense classes. These classes have been filling up quickly but there are a handful of spaces left. If you are interested in booking your child into one of our popular self defense sessions then please contact us or speak to your Sensei or call us on 020 7586 1222
Each session is £10.
Dates for self defense courses – level 3:
- Little Monkeys (5 to 7’s) on Saturday 26th May at 1.15pm
- Juniors (8 to 10’s) on Saturday 23rd June at 1.15pm
- Older juniors (11 to 14’s) Saturday 14th July at 1.15pm.
These courses are designed to build on the techniques learnt in the first two parts of our self defense courses, however, it is not essential to have attended these.
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.
