YOUNG STUDENTS HOW TO FALL SAFELY
MARTIAL ARTS INTO SCHOOLS
'Since the inception of Martial Arts classes at Watling Lower School there
have been many positive developments seen within many members of the
club. From a behavioural viewpoint the disciplined approach required by
the instructional methods employed which focus on listening and
observation skills has resulted in improvements in the behaviour of many
of the pupils both in and out of the classroom. This has also embedded
itself positively within the academic curriculum in that the positive
discipline permeates all areas of learning and definitely makes a major
contribution to the overall development of these children.'
Lower School Dunstable
Kickboxing classes have been highly successful and not just for the
talented pupils. We have Sixth Formers who usually put very little effort
into normal lessons who in Martial Arts give 100%. We also have youngsters
who have finally found a sport where they feel they are achieving
something and consequently their self esteem has been greatly improved.'
