We are so happy to be part of this school so professionally run yet has a feeling of home. The staff are so friendly and welcoming. Mr Parry is simply outstanding, he has a way of making you feel at home. Our daughter loves her time spent learning here in a safe and happily run school. This Academy we would highly recommend as 5 Star+ and are proud to say our daughter is a part of it.

We started Taekwondo for a sporting activity that we thought would benefit L-Jay in a positive way. We chose 5TMA on recommendation and the welcoming atmosphere. We like the interaction with others in lessons and our favourite thing is the learning and the fun element of training. There is good progress throughout the belts with fresh elements to learn each time. It has helped L-Jay build his confidence and his communication skills. We would recommend 5TMA to someone thinking about training because it’s not just about Taekwondo, the centre puts other events on throughout the year to promote a family atmosphere. There is outstanding commitment by the Instructors to deliver the best training possible.

Mr and Mrs Dent for their son L-Jay

I used to struggle with anxiety quite a lot at school and out. When I heard about Taekwondo in Brigg, I wasn’t sure about it, however I went and gave it a go. I was worried on my first couple of days but everyone is when they’re new. When I had a few days at Taekwondo I loved it and it turned out that it has helped me quite a lot; with confidence, strength and relaxation.

Taekwondo for me is a getaway from all of the worries and stress I was going through. It’s not just about Self Defence, it’s about getting in your right set of mind and helping you to feel safe when walking about by yourself or at school if you are being bullied. It’s not just about fighting, it’s about feeling good!

There are some really nice people at 5TMA, always looking out to help. The staff aren’t like teachers at school. They encourage you to push to your limits while helping through the way which boosted my confidence in school and out!

I haven’t missed any more days off school, I try and do as many activities as I can and I am also much closer with my friends! I do sometimes have worries but everyone does at times, nevertheless I now have learnt how to get through it feeling good, feeling          strong and feeling confident!

Before Taekwondo I often let my anxiety get in the way, I would miss days of school, miss out on fun activities and even missing out on being with friends! But now I feel so much more relaxed and strong, and feeling confident!

Evie - Aged 12

I started Taekwondo because the first lesson that I watched looked really fun, a couple of weeks later I decided to try out a lesson for myself. My favourite thing about training is the patterns, and I like the challenge when I’m learning something new. I have made great progress so far and I have accomplished things that I never thought I would. I would recommend 5TMA as it has changed my life and have learnt a lot in a short amount of time.

Eoghan started Little Dragons aged 4 after seeing a demo from another school. The Academy was chosen due to attitudes towards respect and discipline. Also shift work made it hard to fit things in and there was a wide range of days and times to attend. I like that the lessons teach respect for others and yourself which is vital in today’s world. Taekwondo has helped Eoghan to build his confidence. He had been bullied at school, and coming to classes has helped him not to retaliate and get into fights, improving his self-control. I would recommend 5TMA to someone because enthusiastic staff work with students on all levels giving consistent advice and encouragement.

Tracy Martin for her son Eoghan

I started my children as I wanted them to be confident at school and learn how to work in a team. I like the discipline that is an integral part of the training, and the music is very upbeat to train to. My youngest son has become so much more outgoing and confident, even his concentration in tasks has increased. My eldest son has improved concentration and better self defence skills which is good preparation for secondary school. I would recommend 5TMA because it is a very friendly atmosphere, and the trainers are very approachable and encouraging.

Mrs Lee for her son's Freddy and Edward

My son started the Little Dragons Programme at 4 years of age as we wanted an activity, he would enjoy but also help with self-control and confidence. His younger sister watched him and is now a yellow belt Little Dragon! I like the mix of fun activities with learning technique as it keeps it lively and interesting for my daughter. I think it’s helped my daughter’s confidence; she is very good at listening and self-control but mixing with other children and joining in activities has really helped her. I would absolutely recommend 5TMA, the availability of days/times of classes gives a good choice and flexibility. There are some great Instructors, some are especially good with Little Dragons as young children – Mr May and Mr King in particular.

Mrs Anderson for her son and daughter Noah and Ava

We started at 5TMA for boosting Otis’ confidence with other children and the discipline. We chose 5TMA as it was recommended by a friend who attends the club. The lessons are fun, enjoyable but also consistent for learning. His progress has been excellent and has given Otis a hobby that he loves and really looks forward to. We would recommend 5TMA for the great instructors and great approach to teaching the children. As parents we enjoy attending the classes, it is very rewarding to watch our son so happy whilst enjoying his new passion.
