Service Description

Children must be accompanied by an adult for at least the first session and be mature enough to either train unaided or with the help of a participating parent/carer. Please note, due to past no-shows, we must regrettably ask for a nominal payment of just £5 per student that wishes to take part in this session (this is payable before training commences or if you prefer you can WATCH FOR FREE by just calling us on 07888 660225 to check the class is on). Your payment secures your place and is non-refundable but If you join at your booked session this amount will be deducted from your joining fee. meaning your FIRST SESSION IS FREE! WHAT TO EXPECT: We will start our training with a fun warm-up then progress to learning some techniques whilst still having fun. If you find anything difficult please don't worry as your instructor (parent or carer) will be available to help you. If you are at all worried about having to fight or concerned about getting hurt in sparring please don’t be as you will NOT be sparring with anyone on your first session, or in further sessions until such time as you and your instructor both agree that you are ready and happy to do so (and even then this will only be done in a safe, progressive manner with the appropriate safety sparring equipment). If you are finding anything difficult and your partner can’t help you please just raise your hand or call out to your Sensei (dressed in a black uniform) and we will help you. You will not be told off for asking questions, everyone was a beginner once and your instructors always know this and will do all we can to make your classes a fun learning experience. We sometimes find people are nervous and worried about their first class, but I assure you there is no need to be. It will be fun, safe and if there is anything you don't feel happy doing during the class just let me know and we will find something else for you to do, or you can watch until you feel happy to join in again. All we ask is that you treat classes like school or work, giving us your full attention when we are demonstrating what we would like you to do, not talking when we do, and trying your best. At the end of the class, we will usually finish with a fun drill (game), such as the very popular dodgeball, which helps with things such as improved speed, reaction, timing etc.
