What to expect in a class...
All classes start and finish with bowing whilst entering the room to show courtesy and respect. Before we start each class, every student must show that they are focused and ready to start by standing to attention.
During the class the students will learn basic kicking, punching and blocking. They will learn how to use their voices.
They will work with each other on techniques.
There is an element of fitness training and hitting soft pads,
but all done at a level suitable for the age group.
Most importantly, it is impressed upon them that what they learn is not to be used on others outside of the classes, unless it is in self defence.
Good behaviour is developed with all students, both in & outside of the classes
Covering Croxley Green, Rickmansworth and Watford.
