Stick fighting course/classes are based on japanese martial arts including principles from Wado Ryu, Ken Jitsu (sword), Bo Jitsu (Long Staff), Jo Jitsu (short staff) and Philippian stick fighting. No previous martial arts experience or fitness is required, as the stick does all the work for you. Anything technique learnt with the stick can then easily be modified into empty hands or knife defence. As student’s progress different ranges are taught with different lengths of sticks/staff or knifes. Empty hand and kicking techniques are also included. Students must be over 15 years of age to take part in our classes. Contact us for a free introductory class. Check our timetable for class times.

Meditation is a means of transforming the mind. It helps us change the way we relate to ourselves and the world around us.Buddhist meditation techniques offer a way of encouraging and developing positive states of mind, such as calmness, clarity, emotional positivity and a deeper seeing of the true nature of things. The main thing we learn when we meditate is that we have a choice about how we think and feel. Even though much is out of our control in life, we can always take responsibility for our own states of mind and choose to change them for the better. Meditation empowers us to make this choice. Over thousands of years Buddhist meditation techniques have developed to help people work with their minds, and the foundation of them all is the cultivation of a calm and positive state of mind.
