Teenagers & Adults Tatser session

Try a Self Defence & Martial Arts class in Swanage, Dorset - from 10 am to 12 pm on Saturdays

  • 2 hr
  • 9 British pounds
  • Swanage Dojo

Service Description

This 2-hour session is to allow prospective students to try both our Traditional Martial Arts class for all ages and abilities as well as our Self-Defence class for Teens and Adults so they may see the benefits of both and decide which class(es) are best for them. What to expect: Please arrive up to 15 minutes before the start of your booked session so we can help with any questions or concerns you may have and help you settle in. Sometimes, people are nervous and worried about their first class, but I assure you there is no need to be. It will be fun, and 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. If, during the class, you are finding anything difficult and your partner can’t help, please just ask, and I will help you. Everyone, including me, was a beginner once and I will never forget this so I will do all I can to make your classes an enjoyable learning experience. After chatting and helping you settle in, you will then be able to try our traditional martial arts class and our senior class. Our senior classes are very friendly and informal; everyone calls each other by their first name, including me, your Instructor, Ian. We start with a quick, warm-up to ensure our bodies are ready for the training to follow. We will then start training, working on aspects from our syllabus including such things as personal safety, awareness, avoidance, confidence, dissuasion, escaping dangerous situations, managing personal space, pre-emptive striking (when it is legal and acceptable to do so), adrenaline and fear (controlling and utilising), striking (punching, kicking, power slapping, improved power generation, elbows, knees, head), escaping from grips and holds, weapons (awareness, defence and the law) and more. You will be taught at your own level, whether you are new to martial arts or more experienced in a friendly, safe manner (Please don’t worry, you will NOT be sparring with anyone on your first session, or even in further sessions until such time as you and your instructor both agree that you are ready, safe and happy to do so and even then this will only be done in a safe, progressive manner with the appropriate safety sparring equipment). At the end of your session we will answer any questions you may have and if you would like to continue training with us we can go through the membership options.
