Martial Arts / Self-Defence Club (Years 1-4 / Years 5-13, Parents)

There are hundreds of different Martial Arts around the world. Every major civilisation has created their own version. Martial Arts are about self-discipline, body and mind harmony, respect and a sense of belonging. Martial Arts are also a widespread and traditional pedagogical method. In order to combine fun, sport and learning fundamentals in a safe environment for boys, girls, and adults alike, we have chosen Ju-Jitsu, self-defence and boxing as stepping stones of this Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) course. Ju-Jitsu is based on projections, locks and chokes. Self-defence is a set of techniques designed to remain safe in case of aggression, by using a defence proportionate to the attack. Boxing is based on punches and kicks to defend and attack. A martial artist’s only true opponent is themselves, and Martial Arts are essentially a mental preparation for a well-balanced life.

In Ultimate Frisbee, good sportsmanship and a fun spirit is just as, if not more, important as counting up points. In fact, as the sport is traditionally played without referees, the responsibility for fair play is entirely placed on the players. Therefore it is a great sport for students who would like to play in a team, but who want to avoid strong competitiveness.
