Martial Arts Erina
Black Belt Martial Arts Erina values the positive impacts martial arts training has on the individual student and the community as a whole. Sensei Glenn says: “as my business has grown it has been a pleasure to watch my students grow with me. Their skills as martial artists are improving with each lesson but more importantly I see the impact of martial arts on their day to day lives. I love hearing stories from parents or students about personal achievements or goals reached which they have put down to better focus and self-discipline arising out of their martial arts training”.
Black Belt Martial Arts Erina runs little dragons classes (4 – 7 years of age), Karate and Kick Boxing. We train students aged from 3 to 80 years. We teach all levels of Karate from white belt through to black belt and beyond. At Black Belt Martial Arts Erina not only do you get to learn essential life skills of self-defence we also teach more traditional skills of Shotokan Karate such as Kihon, Kumite (sparring) and Kata. As our students progress in their journey through martial arts they have the option of joining our leadership training program which focus on developing leadership qualities, further developing self-confidence and they also get to learn the art of Kobudo (weapons) and competition training (optional).
BBMA Erina is managed in accordance with the values of Honesty, Integrity, Trust and Value. Every one of our students is important to us and we want to make them feel welcome at the dojo every time they train. We want everyone to get the most out of their Karate and will work with them to reach their goals in and out of the Dojo. Sensei Glenn has supported some of his students in reaching their Duke of Edinburgh award and worked closely with parents to address and assist some students facing difficulty in the school playground. Building self-confidence through Karate not only makes students feel physically safe but it helps them to develop clear thinking in times of stress, this is an important life skill that will help students achieve outcomes and overcome barriers to success.
