On the surface, at JD's DOJO martial arts school, you learn a combination of self-defence training awareness/techniques, boxing skills, practical kicking techniques, and learning how to manage yourself when on the ground. The ultimate goal being that you/your child will have sufficient knowledge, ability, and self-confidence to use what you have learnt in situations ranging from deciding on the most effective way to defend yourself, to competitive bouts where you put your skills to the test against other practitioners. At the same time though, under the surface, you/your child are fostering something more critical.
What I find so rewarding is when I see I have made a connection. I see the student's eyes light up because they just realised they have done something that they probably thought they couldn't do. Children especially have power inside of them, they just need to believe it, find it, harness it, and then let it out! "Once you start believing in yourself, you will be unstoppable."
I sincerely can't wait to meet you and/or your child. I take your faith in me as a privilege.
My pledge to you as a parent or a student, is that I will give you my all and will never abuse your trust. I will invest in you as you have invested in me.
