    Upwey Tae Kwon Do

    14-06-2017 by Saul

    I train at Upwey Rhee TKD side by side with my 9 yo son. There's not a lot of sports where you can do this which is one of the things we both love about it - however it doesn't stop there. The people we train with are great, the instructors are great all combined with some excellent messaging about self control and respect. We're only just getting established in our training routine, however I already notice some great physical and mental benefits. One of the aims of the training is to get your brain and body working in sync with each other - it amazes me how much of a challenge this actually is - but I think I'm getting there. In conclusion, I can't recommend it highly enough and hopefully my son and I will both be training there for many years to come.

    Answer from Upwey Tae Kwon Do and Self Defence on 16-06-2017:
    It is always pleasing to know that students are "getting it" and seeing the benefits, both for them as individuals but also as a family.

    Traditional AND practical

    14-06-2017 by Ying

    Amazing instructor and students at Upwey Taekwondo who make you feel right at home and are very welcoming and accommodating whether you are new to the arts or a returning student after a long break.

    Answer from Upwey Tae Kwon Do and Self Defence on 16-06-2017:
    A welcoming, family friendly atmosphere is one of our main goals. With a good environment students will learn more and more quickly. Thanks for the review.

    Great activity for kids and adults

    09-02-2016 by Jess Brown

    Tae kwon Do helps people to develop flexibility, strength and coordination in a fun, low-pressure way. Upwey Tae Kwon Do teachers are knowledgeable and patient. Well-worth the experience for kids and adults alike.

    Answer from Upwey Tae Kwon Do and Self Defence on 19-05-2016:
    Besides the physical benefits of exercise, by training together often as a family, both children and adults learn that respect is a two-way street. This reinforces respect all round and boosts self confidence as the usual power hierarchy between adults and children is not relevant in our martial art.

    Upwey Tae Kwon Do and Self Defense

    08-02-2016 by Faith Nicholls

    This has been the best activity my son has ever been involved with. Excellent mentoring and teaching . My son developed great confidence in himself as well as learning new skills.

    Answer from Upwey Tae Kwon Do and Self Defence on 19-05-2016:
    Self confidence in children, especially teenagers, will help them to resist negative peer pressure and thus make them safer. Regular training in a safe non-competitive environment will boost their confidence as they learn. This is compared to a competitive environment which disadvantages those who cannot keep up with others, often resulting in a lowering of self confidence.

    How to help your kid find their balance in life

    Pretty soon, our ‘life triangle’ is all out of shape - just like our bodies. We all too often become aware of this imbalance when it appears to be too late, and start to bounce around looking to regain some balance. Joining the gym has become a fad and is worth a try until we realise that we are paying more and going less. Self motivation is probably to be found within the shortened ‘mental’ side of our triangle. Short courses may help to improve our mental and/or spiritu...

    Self defence for kids - recognising danger

    Teaching our children (and ourselves) to recognise what is “normal” in our homes, schools, and local community can make it a lot easier to spot incongruities that may signal a potential danger or dangerous situation.   Dangerous situations that your child or teenager could be more aware of include: - A darkened area that is normally lit.  - Door locks not in their expected state. Perhaps the storeroom door is normally locked but you notice it is unlocked. - S...

    How to raise brave kids - that understand FEAR

    Adrenalin (epinephrine) is a natural body chemical that causes our muscles to perform quicker resulting in more strength and a faster response. Associated with this adrenal dump is a release of dopamine to act as a natural pain killer. All this results in reactions like shaky knees or butterflies in the stomach and a strong feeling that you want to be somewhere else. All of which is simply interpreted as fear. This is quite natural and can result whenever placed under stress, from being required...

    Very inclusive club

    01-05-2018 by Simon Davidson

    Kiwi Hawthorn Junior Rugby Club has been a very welcoming and inclusive club for our 4yr old son in his first year of rugby union. Communication and coaching has been great and even though our 4yr old is the youngest in the team by a few years, coaches have found ways to include him in games so that he enjoys and looks forward to each game..

    Thanks Simon, we love the tenacity of your boy, he sets the example for all of our junior players!

    Kiwi Hawthorn is an amazing club, encouraging the girls and boys to have fun. The development of skills is just another benefit that they learn, without even knowing it. The coaches are extremely committed and approachable. Here lies the evidence of strong rugby team values, within a small rugby community.

    Thanks Kris, we really appreciate your support and the contribution made by your family.

    So glad we found this club......

    01-05-2018 by CT

    Found this little gem of a club two years ago, when the Junior teams were being re-established. I'm so glad we did, as we have found it to be a wonderfully welcoming, friendly and inclusive club. Both our kids (1 boy, 1 girl) are playing now, and both myself and partner are volunteering. Both contact and non-contact forms of rugby are offered, so kids of all ages and abilities can play. Can highly recommend joining the Kiwi Hawthorn Juniors.

    Thanks CT, you and your family have been instrumental in helping us grow, love your work!
