After School Martial Arts Programme

The Martial Arts Academy are taking a children's martial arts for self defence programme, through out 2018.
The classes will incorporate a combination of kicking and punching techniques, self defense, anti bullying strategies and a few agility games thrown in for good measure.

Through martial arts children develop confidence, increased motor skills, focus and discipline. One of the greatest benefits of learning a martial art is as their skills develop, children learn about goal setting, effort & reward as they work towards grading to the next belt level. This is an extremely valuable life skill, which sets children up well for sports, academic achievement, and ongoing success in life.

Bellevue Primary School Hall: Wednesdays at 7.45am - 8.45am, open to all Bellevue Primary Students*.
