Blood Sports (not really) - martial arts and self defence basics

LA Code: 

In a safe and controlled environment lets develop skills in martial arts for confidence and self defence.

The first martial art session will be learning about the different martial arts and the respect involved in interacting with your peers. In this class you will be learning about a range of different combat options. There will be no intentional striking to harm but we will learn techniques to help develop fitness and self defence. This is to be a safe and respected environment for people to learn at their own pace with the help of other students that have a background in some of the disciplines. In some of these classes you will be in physical contact with other students and/or instructors to help with technical knowledge. In most cases you will be working with a buddy your own size.

We will have fencing from an outside provider. We will visit the boxing gym, 1 More Round, across the road. Other providers may help delivery in specific sports.

**The first two weeks will be learning about the Olympic Values while we enjoy watching the 2020 Tokyo Olympic Games.**
