Much More Than Punching and Kicking

Monday, September 28th, 2009

Martial Arts is so much more than Punching and Kicking for both adults and children.

There are so many benefits to be gained through Martial Arts ranging from increasing Confidence and Self Esteem, to encouraging Discipline, Self Discipline, Respect, Focus and Excellence. The increase in strength, coordination, balance and flexibility.

Martial Arts can help us to think about ourselves and assist in our own Personal Development.

There can be many health benefits gained through a good Martial Arts Program, in fact have a read of the following Testimonial from one of my own students, it’s something that helps us to realise just how much of a difference we can make in people’s lives:

My Doctor actually shook my hand and said he had never seen such a drastic change in a persons health…

“I started training in Ju Jitsu 6 months ago. Having been severely overweight (100 pound plus) I was somewhat reluctant to begin any kind of regiment that would interfere with my less than healthy lifestyle. Fortunately I started a new job where I got to know Sensei Malcolm.

After about 6 months of prodding by him, and procrastinating by myself, I decided to give it a try. It was one of the best decisions of my life.
When I started I had the usual fears of starting a new program with a lot of people who had been there longer and had more training than myself, but the fears were soon put to rest by the helpfulness of the people that I thought I would feel intimidated by. Not only were they eager to help, but they also gave me the confidence to pursue a complete change in my life as well as my attitude towards it.

Maybe someday you may see my story in a book, with the foreword being a tribute to Sensei Malcolm,  Kelly also helped me develop a better nutritional plan than the fast food one that I had taught myself, and the other students who constantly surprise me with their support.

Drop by the club and feel free to talk Sensei Malcolm or myself about the complete life change that I have achieved with the help of this training.
If you knew me then and now you wouldn’t believe it, I still have trouble doing so. And if I can do it so can you.

Just a footnote, after getting a physical examination after training for only 4 months, my Doctor actually shook my hand and said he had never seen such a drastic change in a persons health, which by the way he said is now perfect.

Thank you“.

Alex Wilson

I’m sure you will agree that Martial Arts has had quite the impact on Alex’s life. Let me assure you that this is not a one-off, many people have experienced the health and Fitness benefits from being involved in a Martial Arts Program.

Maybe Martial Arts will help you reach your goals too!
