  • Leadership: The courage to shape a better future
  • Integrity: Be real
  • Accountability: If it is to be, it’s up to me
  • Passion: Committed in heart and mind
  • Loyalty: Support those that support you
  • Trust: Be who you say you are
  • Sincerity: Actions speak louder than words
  • Benevolence: Show compassion
  • Self-Control: Controlling self is choosing your destiny

Martial Arts main goal is for self defence – the defence of one’s self. In other words eat well, rest, exercise, meditate, be happy, surround yourself with like-minded people, live, breathe, relax and all the other things which help us to live a full and healthy life.

New and enriched lives can only be forged through hard consistent training with a clear and open mind. Never accept Mediocrity from yourself or those around you. Life is about choices.

Train Hard, Stay Safe
