The Marc Hughes Black Belt Academy
This brings us up to the Birth of “The Marc Hughes Black Belt Academy”, very much a mixture of the the Old Style Traditional ways of teaching and the More Modern Westernised approach. Highlighting the values and benefits to be gained from practising the martial arts, and how they can be applied outside of the dojo, at home, in school or in the work place.
The benefits include Confidence, Honesty, Modesty, Courtesy, Self Control, None Quitting Attitude, Commitment, Goal Setting and dealing with the bully without fighting. Also learning to defend yourself, and keep fit, in a warm and friendly environment.
Karate Classes are held at the Ffordd Las Community Centre every Monday & Thursday.
