My family and I have attended the Swinton academy for three years now. There is always a friendly and encouraging atmosphere in the school and the instructors are always willing to answer any questions or give advice on any aspect of the training we need help with. They regularly go out of their way to assist each of us in our own personal journey. We all enjoy the classes as a family and I find there is something for each of us individually:The youngest of my sons Daniel is in the Tiger Tots programme which teaches children life improvement skills such as to respect elders and not talk to strangers. The classes are energetic and he has great fun running, kicking, jumping and shouting and is always eager to show me what he has learned in the class and how high he can kick.Connor who is eight has now progressed out of the Tigers and into the leadership and takes his new longer classes more seriously, eager to learn he works better in a mixed class of children and adults.Declan my ten year old is naturally very supple and talented and the training brings out the best in him.Holby my fourteen year old who is generally reluctant to participate in any physical activity really enjoys the classes and responds well to the encouragement of the trainers, he also likes learning about the history of the martial arts.Myself, I like the traditional structure, discipline and respect of the classes. Training has given me the kind of confidence and a level of fitness that I haven’t had before and it has given us as a family an activity we all are interested in and doing together.

I have seen a great change in James’s attitude which was noticeable after only a few weeks. The discipline that Family Martial Arts Centres instils in him is fantastic and can only give him greater benefits for future life.

Sam was very quiet and a very shy boy, but since enrolling him on the leadership course he has become more confident and has learnt a great deal about leadership skills and traits. There has also stared to make improvements in school. Also I have enrolled my daughter on the program because I have seen what Family Martial Arts Centres has done for my son

My name is Dylan Currie, I am 8 years old. I have been a member of Family Martial Arts Centres for nearly 4 years. Karate helps me learn to defend my self and makes me fit because of all the exercise we do in class. I am very happy because I have just joined the Leadership program and train 3 times a week. My best part of class is when we do stretching and kicking. When I started I was very shy, now I feel more confident with every thing I do

The Family Martial Arts Centres has helped give my two children (Heather & Adam) extra confidence and discipline which they have taken to school which has helped them achieve better grades recently! They also enjoy it immensely.

What Our Students Say
My son came to the classes 9 months ago and has achieved so much in his confidence and discipline. I personally think this is a professional, organised class. With mixed classes of children and adults which help with the childrens confidence. It has a very friendly atmosphere with extra activities out of class times.
James has shown more maturity since joining hopefully this will continue. James has also shown commitment to a single activity, with no signs of vareing yet.
As a family we have really enjoyed training at family martial arts centres. We have found that the lessons have something for each of us so that we are all interested in what we are doing.
Since Chloe started the leadership course her confidence has increased considerably. She has become more committed to different aspects of her life. She positively enjoys all the sessions.
I feel that Adam has gained confidence and respect to others, he has also gained self discipline which has helped him to perform better at school and its fantastic to see how Family Martial Arts Centres has helped my son.
Tiger Tots has helped my son's confidence and he really enjoys being part of a team. He also enjoys filling in his home self-improvement charts, which really help me control his behaviour at home.
