Choi Kwang Do Kirwan

22-06-2016

Very friendly and inviting club. All instructors are great with the kids and communicate well with all participants.

Great atmosphere and friendly people

13-06-2016

They really have their students best interests at heart, my son was having difficulty and following the encouragement of the instructors he is now having a ball and cant wait to go to class, we are seeing the benefits too!

Persistance is Key

13-06-2016

My son started at Choi Kwang Do about 4 months ago. When he started he was nervous and didn't want to participate in the class. The staff acknowledged this and each lesson worked along side him to make him feel more comfortable and accepted . After a few weeks of persistence he now loves attending classes and is happy to participate in what is expected of him in class.

Excellent

Upwey Tae Kwon Do

14-06-2017

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.

Traditional AND practical

14-06-2017

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.

How to raise brave kids - that understand FEAR

When confronted by someone or an unusual event we are often surprised by our body's reaction, often interpreted as 'Fear'. At a physiological level our body is dumped with adrenalin which makes our muscles ready to fight or flee from any perceived attack or stressful situation, that is our 'fight' or 'flight' instinct. These two primordial responses are most obvious in children who will run away or lash out when stressed. Read more

Self defence: A lesson in safer living

Self Defence is much less about one's ability to fight and more about knowledge of one's self and environment. We are born with a natural instinct for survival and self preservation but in our modern 'civilised' society much of this instinct has been conditioned out of us, particularly in women.

Spirit of First Beginning

05-07-2016

I've been delighted at how Ben's flourished in class - it's good that he's doing well at the physical stuff, but I'm most pleased with the way he's learning to concentrate and practice. Sandra inspires a persistence in him that I've only seen him give to a couple of skills (mostly Lego!) :)

Excellent

Best combination of health, fun, and fitness.

The self defence skills that is taught is realistic and practical and the combat techniques are very sharp and dynamic.

Best thing I've ever done!

10-06-2016

Kin Taekwondo is the perfect school for all ages and abilities. There is an equal focus on skill and fitness, and excellent balance between self-defence and the traditional martial art. The Instructors take the time to get to know each student and work with them one-on-one when needed, and everyone is pushed to the best of their ability. I'm 20 and have been heavily involved in sport all my life, but I have never been physically or mentally healthier than I am since starting at Kin.

The community, instructors and students respect, include and learn from each other, which is something that is hard to find. As a young adult, I would highly recommend this activity for any and all ages. Whether you want to increase your physical fitness, mental discipline or want to try something new, I strongly suggest Kin Tae Kwon Do.

best place on earth

03-06-2015

Joining Wilkes was the best thing i have ever done. Ive met the most supportive people there and are proud to call them my friends the instructor team are the most kindest and helpful people iver ever met. joining in 2011 was the best decision ive ever made and would never look back. i love recommendeding this place to people because i know its a wonderful place with wonderful people and i have never been so fit. in the last year ive lost 10kgs and 2 dress sizes just from the classes witch are hard but the most fun. between the fitness classes, bjj classes and martial arts classes I pretty much live there and i love it.

Best Life Decision i Have Made

11-05-2015

I have been training with Wilkes since 2012, I turn 41 this year and I dont remember feeling as fit, sharp, confident and balanced in a long time. The atmosphere/vibe created within the gym is a sanctuary from pressures of the outside world, the instructors are dedicated and passionate about their art and the progression of all students be it the 3yr olds through to the "older" people like myself. Egos are left at the door and everyone is in there to assist and bring the best out in everyone else regardless of experience and rank. Anyone thinking of signing their child or children up, I could not recommend Wilkes more highly, the quality and substance in the kids classes are not just self-defence and fitness but crucial life skills including respect, courtesy, integrity and dedication. All in all a fantastic environment to train in, a fantastic group of people, quite possible one of the best decisions I have made was walking through the door and getting started.

Not just for the serious athletes.

08-05-2015

I joined Wilkes Academy in 2013 after realising that 25 years of trying every fad diet available had left me a middle aged very overweight man susceptible to diabetes and a shortened life expectancy. My wife and daughter had already joined and I had been along to watch a few times, never even daring to think I could do what they were doing. I was asked a few times by Mr Mitchell if I'd like to join in, but I managed to find an excuse every time. Eventually I plucked up the courage to have a crack at it, fully expecting to feel humiliated. What I discovered was a family of instructors and students who are absolutely dedicated to helping people set a goal and realise it, to get fit and have a laugh at the same time, and to learn a skill that both gives you focus away from life's worries and in the unfortunate event that you need to rely on it, would give you a good chance of defending and protecting yourself in a controlled way. Eighteen months later, I am 16kg lighter, fitter, happier, healthier and the proud wearer of a blue belt. I had no confidence that I would last a month when I signed up, but now I can't imagine not having this aim, and these friends, in my life. My ten year old daughter has her education and attitude assessed prior to every grading and this has proved to be very effective in making her want to 'do the right thing' as well as giving her the ability to defend herself also. We pay a very reasonable weekly membership fee and can attend as many classes as we wish. This is not only martial arts classes, but also general fitness classes. Wilkes Academy has changed lots of things about me, but most importantly it has given me a life that I previously thought was out of my reach. Needless to say, I would recommend them to not only the serious athletes, of which there are many in the Academy, but also to the people like me that need the guidance to change their lifestyle and lose weight and get fit.
