Reflection on 2008

 Another year has passed. I often reflect at the end of 12 months what have we achieved in the martial arts. Just as important what you, as an individual, have achieved. Martial Arts training requires your concentration, patience, time, and you make sacrifices, but the benefits are really worthwhile which result in an improvement in your whole well-being, both mentally and physically.

Although our core 'business' is Karate-Jitsu we usually step outside the circle by giving students the opportunity to experience and train in other areas of the martial arts:

  1. Kickboxing
  2. Reality Based Self Defence
  3. Black Belt Complexes
  4. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu
  5. Mixed Martial Arts

This has shown to make training much more pleasant and challenging. It also gives the individual the chance to specialise in an area they particularly like. With the some of the best Martial Artists in the world coming over to visit us such as John Will, Richard Norton, Tino Ceberano and Grandmaster Rodel, we are very lucky to have the opportunity to train with these persons.

We are having a short break over the Holiday Season. I hope you can all share my enthusiasm because this break is just a reminder of how much I will miss my training and seeing you.

We would like to see you bring someone with you next year to take on one of the most enjoyable activities around. I wish you all a Merry Xmas and a Happy New Year.
