Winchester School Of Martial Arts offers is primarily focused on the teachings of Japanese Ju Jitsu with classes for kids, adults and families. Classes are split into age groups with mixed groups also on offer. I also deliver TKD & Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ) classes for kids. I also have classes such as 'Fighting Fit' & BOX Fit that offer cardio vascular & core training exercises designed to get you fitter & slimmer.
I am currently a 2nd Dan Black Belt in Japanese Ju Jitsu recognised by the Cobra Martial Arts Association of which I am a member.
I am a 1st Dan Black Belt in Taekwon-Do, ITF I trained under David Harris 3rd Dan who was trained by Grand Master Donato Nardizzi. Grand Master Nardizzi was on my grading panel.
I am a Blue Belt in BJJ - this was awarded to me by Colin Howells. I currently train with Alex De Souza.
Every student is encouraged to reach their own potential rather than directly compete against other students. Students here learn more than a martial art - they learn skills that will enable them to be a more positive & successful individual in life.
I specialize in teaching children the benefits of Martial Art Training. With a unique home & school report card system I am keen to encourage the positive ethos I encourage in class at home & school. In order to grade, students must have positive comments from both home & school. Martial Arts are a lot of fun and channel aggression. Your child will have a great time meeting new friends while learning life changing martial arts. Values such as: non-violence, respect, honesty, integrity, good sportsmanship, trying hard at school, and positive behaviour are the foundations of martial arts and values that students are encouraged to embrace and promote.
FIVE REASONS WHY EVERY CHILD SHOULD JOIN WINCHESTER SCHOOL OF MARTIAL ARTS:
Self-confidence is a vital ingredient for happiness and success. Children who learn a martial art develop better self-confidence. Improved self-confidence leads to better grades, a better circle of friends, better performance in sports and extra-curricular activities in general. Students are encouraged to take chances and to push themselves further than they thought they could go. The success our students experience as they progress to Black Belt teaches them that if they are willing to work hard they can be successful at anything if they truly believe in themselves.
"...martial arts programs are more effective than other physical activities at reducing aggression and hostility and increasing self-esteem, self-control and self-confidence." (Source - Binder, Brad. "Psychosocial Benefits of Martial Arts: Myth or Reality? A Literature Review." 1999.)
2. Improved Progress at School:
Students are taught the importance of concentration and focus. Improved concentration means that your child will learn more at school allowing your child to receive better grades for both academics and attitude. Students must complete a home/school report card in order to grade.
3. Positive Attitudes:
Students at Winchester School Of Martial Arts learn to have a positive and respectful attitude to parents, teachers, friends, other people in general and their environment.
"People who continue to practice the martial arts for prolonged periods are different from the general populace in these ways: they have a lower level of anxiety; an increased sense of responsibility; they are less likely to be radical; they have an increased level of self-esteem; and they are more socially intelligent." (Source - Psychology Today, May 1985.)
Your child will improve his or her strength, flexibility and overall health. Your child will learn to defend themselves with power and effectiveness. Hopefully, your child will never be picked on or need to fight - but should they find themselves in such a situation they will be equipped with the necessary skills needed to protect themselves.
5. Martial Arts Encourage Healthy Children:
Martial arts are a great and fun way to workout. Children who take martial arts are healthier and make better decisions about food. They also learn to take better care of themselves in general.
I am offering 2 free lessons for anyone who is considering signing their child up to a martial art but is not sure if it is right for them. Your child will get a fun introduction to Martial Arts.
