Fitness for life
We believe that fitness and health are the cornerstones to a happy, productive life. For this reason all our training is geared to developing fitness and maintaining health through progressive resistance. Fitness is composed of aerobic fitness, strength and flexibility/ range of motion all of which are developed in martial arts training.
Our grading syllabus is designed to progressively build fitness and skills based around sport science principles. The chief instructors are also constantly updating their training in the latest developments in the fitness/ nutrition industry and share this information with assistant instructors and students
Fun & Friendly
We all like to train and hang out with friends so the atmosphere at Masters Academy is kept fun, friendly and relaxed. This means we do not tolerate people with bad attitudes, bullies or massive egos. We like to cultivate a tribe mentality. We are the Masters Academy Tribe.
We look after each other, respect each other and push each other to improve. We also try to make training fun. Every session is different so you will never do the same class twice so boredom won’t be a factor, we also incorporate lots of fun games and drills to keep the energy high and give everyone a laugh. If you are not having fun why do it?
Learning in martial arts is a never-ending journey. There is always more to learn and improve, so keep and open mind and be humble. Humility shows you care more a bout your students than you do about yourself, which helps them trust and bond with you.
Everyone can teach you something. Keep a permanently open mind and absorb from everyone regardless of rank, age or experience. If you stop growing, you die.
