Go James...

14-10-2016

My son James has been attending Lantern League for nearly 2 years and JUST LOVES IT. A little shy at Primary School, Lantern League has allowed his inner self to shine and this has resulted in a confident , young man, who feels much more comfortable voicing his opinions. As a result of Lantern League and the way the students are taught, James won an impromptu speaking award last year out of a minimum of 100 participating students. I would highly recommend Lantern League to any parent: Lantern League teaches public speaking skills and is something that will put any child ahead of the rest.

love the inner shine

11-10-2016

My daughter (aged 10) has just loved this space. She gets to curiously probe into the world of public speaking and performing and since starting has taken on a public speaking role at school and is growing in confidence all the time. The emphasis on building your inner shine instead of copy cat performing is just great! Super confidence building.

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

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...

Self defence: A lesson in safer living

Why would I be a victim?Victims of crime are just that, victims, and should never blame themselves or wonder what they did wrong or did to deserve some sort of punishment. Although any particular instance is often out of our control there are things that we can consider in order to minimise our risks without locking ourselves away and not having a ‘life’. Some of the reasons that people are more likely chosen to be a victim, include:Being Available - you just happened to be arou...
