Since me and my son joined BBMA together we both have grown more confidence, met great friendly people, learned and leaning some great stuff being taught by professional and friendly instructors. Great for stress relief, fitness, respect and much more.
Joining Black Belt Martial Arts Academy is honestly one of the best, most positive things I have ever done in my life. I've wanted to learn martial arts since I was very young but my parents couldn't afford it, then, as a working adult, I had lost all confidence to go by myself. However, I eventually tried a free lesson and dragged my boyfriend along after 2 years of nagging and we absolutely love it! The atmosphere is so welcoming and friendly, and everyone is extremely respectful - even the Little Samurais will bow and shake your hand! Sensei and Sensei Julie are very skilled and are amazing teachers with loads of energy and so much passion for what they do, couldn't ask for better instructors or learning environment. We have been invited to train in the Leadership class which is a fantastic opportunity to work with people of all skill levels. We have had nothing but great benefits from training; be it toning up/weight loss, fitness, self defence skills, or bringing a better sense of focus and confidence to our lives. I can't recommend BBMA enough!
Never thought martial arts would b for me. But after joining my son, I wasnt far behind him on the mat. Not only has our fitness improve, we have made many new friends. And feel part of a community. It has opened so many avenues for myself. And am now training to b and instructor on their c. I. T program. We love our martial arts school. Couldnt ask to work with nicer people than sensie mark and sensie julie.
This Acadamy is our first introduction to martial arts so I cant make a comparison to another, but we dont need to..... Since joining the acadamy my daughter has built on her confidence and her concentration and she continues to grow as a person with the influence of her respected teachers. She is fully committed. The environment at the Dojo is friendly and inclusive.
I have attended the Zen Wellness Tai Chi classes since June 2011 and I can thoroughly recommend them. I was looking for something that would keep me fit without being too strenuous. I was also looking for something that would help me to chill out. These classes have been the perfect combination. The instructor is clear with his instructions and works at the appropriate pace for his students. A happy, easy-going and instructive course that welcomes all ages and abilities.
Very friendly family run dojo that caters for various needs of its students young and old, having studied kick boxing and tae kwon do in my younger days i was looking to get back into martial arts without the added pressure of being pushed to the limits again and this dojo offers you the chance to learn at your own pace recommended to anyone looking to get into martial arts.
My son joined a year ago, he had low self asteem and little confidence. He also has liver disease and needed a suitable workout. Sensei, Sensei Julie, instructors and other members have really made us welcome and my son has gone from strength to strength. He is so much more confident and is proud of himself. Such a friendly place, could not ask for anything more, really changed our outlook.
You couldn't ask for a more friendly and respectful place to train,it's great for families to train together aswell as individuals.Sensei and sensei julie put a lot of time and effort in and it shows.My two daughters train there and they love it.
