Our classes teach a highly effective self defence system. Proper Self defence training is much more than just punching and kicking, it’s about developing awareness, confidence and the ability to manage confrontation.
Martial arts is a complete workout. You build stamina, strength, and flexibility. You also develop coordination and balance. You feel better physically as your body becomes stronger and more capable. Martial arts is a great way to stay in shape.
Because you can handle yourself physically, you begin to develop confidence in yourself and your capabilities. You walk taller with your head up; you’re prepared, calm, and self-assured.
In training, you must be very aware of your actions and the people around you. You become more aware of your environment, which helps to keep you safe out in the world. This broadening of awareness is important in life. It can help in school, work, and in your relationships. It can generally help you navigate your way through life.
Friends in Martial Arts are friends for life’. Through training, learning and competing we forge great new friendships and develop lifelong relationships. Martial Arts is also a great developer of social skills for younger participants.
Martial arts offers a positive way to reduce stress. You direct your energy in a physical way that is beneficial, and there is no doubt that hitting a punching bag is a great way to release pent up energy and stress.
We teach respect, discipline, how to cooperate, and how to be humble. This is all part of proper Martial Arts training. The martial arts school is a great environment for learning the importance of perseverance and excellence.
Martial arts training can be challenging—practicing the sport demands discipline and courage to perform new techniques. Character development is an outcome for dedicated martial arts students. Students who are brought outside of their comfort zones have an opportunity to grow.
Apart from anything else Martial Arts is also great fun for all ages. Training should be enjoyed not endured. Although we teach Martial Arts in a disciplined and traditional manner we also ensure that everyone enjoys training, we believe that maximum benefits from our class activities will be achieved if everyone has a bit of fun in every class.
Although not everyone will choose to compete, we do offer our students the opportunity to take part in all levels of competition from local inter-club up to national and even international level. Our over fighter’s achievements over many decades has earned us the reputation as being one of Ireland’s most successful Martial Arts Clubs.
