What Makes Us Different?
East West Martial Arts is a very different kind of Martial Arts School. In particular, our children’s classes have been specially designed for the different age-groups that we teach. Likewise, our classes are child friendly, with fun-packed, exciting and educational lessons with life skills. In summary, our classes are unique and are unlike any other martial arts classes that you will see anywhere else.
Watching Our Classes
As an example, when you are watching our classes, and our students stand up tall and are loud and clear. It’s very easy for us to say, we teach Confidence because you can ‘see it’.
Similarly, when you watch our classes and you see our students walk proudly. It’s very easy for us to say that these students have Self Esteem.
Likewise, while watching a class, you can observe that the students eyes are constantly on the instructors. So it’s easy for you to see that these students have Focus & Concentration skills.
In exactly the same way, when our students are lined up in class. It’s very easy for you to tell that our classes are Structured and Disciplined, because you can ‘see it’.
Nigel Davison (7th Dan Principal Instructor)
Above all, I have had the great pleasure, and feel extremely fortunate to have been training in the Martial Arts for over 40 years. In particular, I have developed a love and a passion for the art of teaching students of all ages. I believe that there is something special, unique and almost magical, when you can impact and empower children and adults to become more successful in their lives. Regularly, their lives are transformed forever, through the power of Martial Arts, and the values they teach. In conclusion, training in the Martial Arts is one of the greatest gifts in life. Especially, the ability of Martial Arts to create positive change in peoples lives, especially children.
