Every week, we talk with our youngest students about a ‘Word of the Week’. I would like to talk to you all about a very important Word of the Week topic that is vital in such challenging times – Perseverance.

What is perseverance? According to www.dictionary.com *1, perseverance is:

“steady persistence in a course of action, a purpose, a state, etc., especially in spite of difficulties, obstacles, or discouragement.” 

www.kidsandvalues.com 2* says:

Perseverance is often learned by having to battle with something that is difficult for a long time until you have mastered it. The classic for many kids is piano lessons. Piano lessons are a good example because it normally takes several years to get to the point where you can sound good and actually enjoy it. Usually those that reach the point of enjoyment have learned a lot about perseverance because it has not been easy for them or for their parents. Many parents wonder whether it was worth the battle and many decide the answer is no. 

For some school can be the challenge that teaches them perseverance. For others it is sports. It is good for a parent to encourage your child to work to develop some skill that does not come easy for them. 

What route will you choose?

 

It’s fair to say the first part of April has been very challenging times for everyone, especially for martial arts schools. As a team of instructors across the UK, regardless of style or organisation, we are all in the same boat and need to work together and persevere to not only save our clubs but keep providing an invaluable service to our students! Traditionally, martial arts whether it’s kung fu, karate or fitness with self-defence is trained physically in person either privately or in a class. Being forced to move online with practically no warning has been particularly challenging for an industry that relies on mostly partner training and physical interaction!

A word that goes with perseverance is endurance! What is endurance? According to www.dictionary.com *3

the fact or power of enduring or bearing pain, hardships, etc.

the ability or strength to continue or last, especially despite fatigue, stress, or other adverse conditions; stamina: He has amazing physical endurance.

lasting quality; duration: His friendships have little endurance.

something endured, as a hardship; trial.

Never give up despite how hard it is!

What does this mean? Running a martial arts school is tough in these times while stuck at home teaching online. So is home schooling your children or stuck on hold trying to claim universal credits to pay your rent and buy food. So is not being able to go out and socialise or see your grandparents. We all need to dig deep and endure! We can feel sorry for ourselves lying in bed all day playing fortnite or minecraft or we can endure these challenges, show perseverance and kick ourselves in the backside!

Training at home is not ideal. It’s just as hard for your martial arts instructor trying to teach you self-defence or keep you fit without a training buddy! You can just give up and wait for your school to reopen, drink wine all day and binge watch netflix or dig deep and work on yourself! There is a whole world of online content out there for you to train from. Kung Fu Bromley is offering you access to a whole of solo training drills to do by yourself at home. Join in the two live Zoom classes with us and take away drills and exercises to practice by yourself. Now is the time to work on your forms, footwork, shapes, learn the basic attacks. Go online and learn yoga, follow a fitness program. Many are offering a month free. There’s no excuse now especially if you always give yourself the excuse, “I don’t have the time”. Lots of us are not sitting on trains or on the tube, we have the time to start learning martial arts online.

Keep punching, keep healthy, keep active and never give up! 

Henry Taylor

Our Chris Crudelli seminar was an excellent afternoons training!

Hi everyone…

It’s our main national event of the year… Grandmaster König’s training & testing seminar!!

The Grandmaster holds 2 events with us every year, where he brings the latest developments and refinements from our martial art. The last seminar in February was a great couple of days training where we worked on defending and countering realistic and probable street hand attacks, as well as dealing your opponent on the ground, and kinesetic reaction training (chi sau).

Our August seminar is not only for all students to train but also for testing our most advanced ones! They will be put through their paces by the GM and he will decide wether they are competent enough to be awarded their new grade.

Saturday 25th is open to everyone starting at 10.00 and finishing at 17.00, where as the Sunday is only available to our advanced students, giving them the opportunity to train in a smaller group and get more time and knowledge from the GM.

It’s a great chance for our students to accelerate the understanding and capabilities with the rest of the schools and community we have here in the south east.

Keep an eye on our blog for the weekends photos 🙂

We’re having a great summer seeing lots of new kids smashing our classes.

Most clubs close for the summer but we always find our classes a great way for parents to keep the little ones active during the long summer holidays 🙂

It’s too often we hear from parents their tired of the amount of time spent on their consoles and want to see them doing a purposeful activity! And as usual we’ve had a great time with all the new little warriors we’re seeing this summer.

We still have a few spaces available 👍 Call Henry for more info on 07986 825 817 or click HERE to contact us 🙂

👊👊👊 We love teaching Vincent at our Tunbridge Wells school!! He’s one of our most enthusiastic students and is always wearing a smile 👊👊👊

Here’s why he enjoys smashing it in our classes 👍

‘My name is Vincent and I am 48 years old. I have started martial art (wing-tsun) in february 2017. Martial art has have a deep impact on me: for instance it has increased my confidence, my fitness and my coordination, and it has taught me that I don’t need to always get it right. I have learnt to laugh at my mistakes’.

‘The friendly environment has also facilitated me to socialise with people. Finally, I would advise wing-tsun for trauma victims as it facilitates the communication and connections between the two hemispheres of the brain’.

Well done Vincent!! We look forward to seeing you at your next session 😃 keep up the great work 👍

 Holly’s one of our best and most dedicated students!! She joined as a little girl but is growing up in to a strong and confident young woman!! We’re super proud of her!!

Here’s what she told us when we saw her in class this week…

‘I started my journey seven years ago, i started when I was five years old. This has helped me with my confidence, feeling like I will be able to protect myself if I am put in that position’.

‘I started it as I was not very good with focusing on a task… or standing still. My family had trained such as my sister, dad and uncle. My family thought it would be a good idea to get me started on this program’.

‘Later on in my journey I would like to get to the point I can teach others, and helping other people that were in the same situation that I was in’.

‘I still enjoy the lessons and looking forward to the next eight years’.

Holly.

👉 We’re also looking forward to the next 8 years 👍 keep up the great work Holly 😃

👊👊 We’re so proud of our students with such dedication and positive attitudes! Nathan is certainly one of our best!! 👊👊

We had a catch up with him in class the other day and explained to us what he’s gaining from the sessions…

‘I joined Fight Fit nearly a year and a half ago and I’ve not looked back’.

‘I wanted to do something more outside of just work and family and get healthy in the mean time, I’ve found another family in the guys and girls from class’.

‘I come in every week ready to learn the techniques and the concepts and more importantly apply them in life. One of the things o take on in my daily life is no stress, flow like Bruce lee always said be like water, not only has the class changed my health and fitness it’s changed my outlook on life’.

We’re looking forward to our future with Nathan!! 👍
