A Modern Approach to Modern Needs
Our Black Belt Lifestyle Academy is dedicated to helping our students develop confidence through the study of Martial Arts. We have taught Martial Arts in Norwich and Norfolk since 1980 and, in that time, we have produced over 350 black belts.
We offer coaching in the following formats:
Taekwondo (Korean Karate)
Family programs develop team spirit. Our programs are designed to develop and strengthen the unity of the family. When individuals work together as a team, their individual talents will naturally improve.
Taekwondo and/or Kickboxing at the Black Belt Academy are something the whole family can enjoy together.
Almost half of our students train with at least one other family member.
Convenient Tuition Arrangements:
Our credit facilities allow you to budget your tuition over time instead of paying it all at once. This makes Martial Arts affordable for everyone. We intentionally keep our fees high enough to deter the parents who want cheap babysitting and adults who want to be 'entertained' for a few hours per week. Yet they are low enough to allow the whole family to journey the road to Black Belt without breaking the bank.
We are working together with other Black Belt Schools around the globe to raise the standards of the Martial Arts industry.
Dedication, Self-Discipline and Respect: The Martial Arts Philosophy teaches the importance of respect for one's self and others. All Black Belt students must follow the Student Creed. Students will learn to set goals and be self-motivating in achieving them. A positive mental attitude will evolve. Our younger students develop self-confidence to resist peer pressures and the disastrous effects of drugs and gangs.
High Levels of Enthusiasm and Positive Reinforcement:
Our qualified instructors are energetic and outgoing. They have a sincere interest in your self-improvement, and in helping you reach your goals. They are all extensively trained in the art of PCP (Praise, Correct, Praise) and they ALL use the MOST helpful and encouraging language to inspire and motivate you with their feedback.
Our staff are willing to go the extra mile for you.
Self Defence Courses
Self defence or 'Shield' Unarmed Combat Training (UCT) as we call it, is a significant part of our Academy ethos. Because the arts we teach are 'Arts' they are not always practical or effective to use in real life situations, In 'Shield' training however, we take the MOST effective techniques from the art that you are learning and show you how these can be applied to real life situations. Everything you learn as part of 'Shield' training, will make you more able to defend yourself and confident in your ability to look after your family/friends.
