My kids, I and my husband has been training at BSMA since July 2013. My kids were only 4 years old when they started. I am so happy I found BSMA and Mr Hall. It's a lovely, friendly place to train at and Mr Hall is a great instructor. We wouldn't go anywhere else. We are all a big family at BSMA and we couldn't be happier with the level of train we receive.
As a person on the wrong side of 40 I wasn't gaining the same results from my normal gym training. After looking in the usual media sections found an offer running at BSMA so contacted Kevin with numerous questions of which were fully answers with suggestion to turn up for a free session. Apprehensively attended a session and so pleased to find a well run club that had no egos from instructor or students and able to walk out knowing I had a great workout. Here I am 8 months down attending as many of the available sessions training with a great team that will support and encourage whilst receiving fantastic guidance and supervision from instructor.
I cannot recommend BSMA enough for any adult of child that wants to keep in shape and learn an effective martial art. I have attended various Martial Arts school locally with mixed results but when I went for the free taster lesson I couldn’t have been more welcomed. Kevin is a very approachable and natural teacher, with great enthusiasm for the progression of his students. He always makes time to answer questions or demonstrate a move during or even after classes. The classes are very well structured, with a good mix of beginners and experienced people and there are so many throughout the week, it’s hard not to find a time slot that suits any schedule. As for the other students, from your first lesson you are struck by the kindness and wiliness of all belts to really help you understand and learn new moves and techniques, and never with any ego. These are the reasons that I always look forward to taking the classes at BSMA, so much so, that I recently signed my 7 year old son up for the children’s classes where he is loving learning a skill and making friends. Everyone should take a taster class, free yourself from going round in circles at the gym, doing the same boring exercises, learn a great martial art and get a real workout!
