WHAT CLASSES SHOULD I DO?
A great martial artist will take every opportunity to train and learn, so we would encourage every student to train in all of the classes on offer. Each class offers a different perspective due to the different purposes behind their practice. Learning to fight within every scenario will provide you with endless tools to use in a myriad of combat situations.
In saying this, if your interest lays only in learning how to be a competitive fighter we encourage you to try our Kickboxing and Mixed Martial Arts programs. If self-defence is your goal, then Defensive Tactics and our traditional Karate classes will provide you with the best self-defence found anywhere on the Tweed coast.
ARE YOUR CLASSES SAFE?
We believe that training should be hard, but it should never be unsafe. Injury can cut your progress and training life drastically and can affect your quality of life. Valour has a very low injury rate because we place importance on the safety of our students. We ensure all of our classes; include a thorough warm up, focus on teaching correct technique, use proper protective gear, and teach and practice control.
WILL I GET FIT?
Martial arts training (when done right) will get you into excellent shape, and provide you with a far more balanced physic than any other fitness activity or sport. It works every muscle in your body, requires you to build flexibility and strength, balance and power also rhythm and timing! Martial arts training also teaches you to work at your highest capacity (give 110%) and ask more of your body than going for a run, lifting weights and attending a yoga class combined!!! But that’s not the real beauty, the real beauty is that all of that is only a by-product of learning a life enriching skill and making tonnes of new friends.
