5 Facts About Us...
1 . We never compromise on the ethics and principles of Martial Arts. Whether you are training as an individual or with family members, you can be assured that you will be benefiting from over 43 years of teaching experience. This is one of the reasons we always offer free trial classes, to allow you to experience for yourself the ways in which the values and benefits of Martial Arts will improve your life. Coupled with our fantastic curriculum, which will help you progress from beginner to advanced student, we are confident in our ability to help you reach the goal of Black Belt.
2 . Here at John Turners Black Belt Academy we understand the challenge in choosing a Martial Arts school. Therefore, when you first visit our Academy, we give you the choice of having a private one-on-one introductory class (with a male or female instructor) or taking part in a beginner class, completely free of charge.
5 Essential Things To Ask Before Taking Up Martial Arts
1. What are my, or my child’s, goals and objectives for starting martial arts?
To get tough? To defeat a bully? Maybe to gain confidence?
Correct Martial Arts will teach self discipline, which leads to increased self confidence, leading to better self control, therefore leading to self achievement– resulting in hitting goals!
2. What commitment am I willing to make?
Martial Arts is a dedicated and rewarding way of life. Are you willing to commit to regular training, to set goals and believe in yourself? Can you agree to the Code of Conduct of a Martial Arts school that has values and good moral grounding. There are many Martial Arts schools and clubs in operation today, but not all have the same values, often omitting any moral or philosophical basis underlying their instruction. No responsible Martial Arts teacher should train students without making certain that the students have the proper moral grounding to know when it is appropriate to use the training they are receiving.
Mr and Mrs Parkinson, for their children George and Grace...
George and Grace have developed so much in the short time they have been with your Academy which was evident today. Before starting with JTBBA, once the nerves kicked in, Grace would not have walked back onto the mat, yet today we saw a much braver little girl with a few reassuring words from Mrs Rowson and Mrs Turner. We are so pleased we brought them to John Turners Black Belt Academy. Thank you again.
Mr Walker, for his son Ryan...
My son Ryan is thoroughly enjoying himself and would attend every session if he could! On a personal note, I have attended many Martial Arts clubs over the years, and I can honestly say that John Turners Black Belt Academy has a fantastic atmosphere and all the instructors are full of enthusiasm. This, I believe, is what makes this Academy perfect for all ages & abilities.
Mr and Mrs Hurst, for sons Ben and Matthew...
Both myself and my husband are impressed with the service we all receive from walking through the door to departing. To be greeted by any member of staff and be acknowledged on a first name basis, be it us or our boys, means a lot. Master Turner is a true wonder and a pleasure to watch, and his dedication and training can be seen throughout the belts…
Kerry Shipley, for her daughter Taylor...
Joining John Turners Black Belt Academy is one of the best decisions we have made as a family it has most certainly improved Taylor’s confidence and supported me to manage my anxieties. Being able to train together is definitely just one of the many benefits of training at JTBBA as we are both on the mats together. The environment and atmosphere that is created within the academy is welcoming and encouraging. No matter what age or level you are at the instruction team work hard and are dedicated to bringing out the best in you.
Darren and Olivia Bradley
I joined John Turners Black Belt Academy along with my 7 year old daughter to build her confidence and self-esteem. I can honestly say that it was the best decision I have made and haven’t looked back. On our first session, I was promised that I would see a difference in Olivia within one month of training and can honestly say that they kept their word. She is so much more confident in everything she does.
Dr Saxena, for his daughter Nina...
I have been accompanying my daughter at the Academy for nearly 5 years now. I have always been impressed by the organised and orderly management. There is an amazing family atmosphere, something that is very unusual in the commercialised environment of today.
John Turner’s Black Belt Academy is extremely well resourced and I would recommend it to anyone with an interest in receiving martial arts tuition. Good martial arts is all about respect, and accordingly John Turner’s Black Belt Academy training regimen supports a highly structured and disciplined training environment, in which everyone, staff and students alike, without exception, are all really nice people with a shared goal – achieving their black belt.
