Our daily ramblings about stuff


Wing Chun is a perfect martial art for learning self defence. Its simplicity makes it an effective martial art for close range fighting because it offers a small range of martial art techniques that work well against the majority of people in the majority of self defence situations. Meaning it works well against the ordinary person who may attack you in the street.

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu for Self Defence

Belts and Progression

Considering the young age of this cohort, we believe that rank advancements should be based on attendance. Hence, all students will receive a certificate of completion of each training phase and the appropriate new rank. We wish to develop ‘Goal Setting’ behaviour from an early stage. Hence, a Patch Program will accompany rank promotions, in order to develop additional early life, safety and Martial Arts skills.
