Will I compete in competitions?

No! Competition based Martial Arts is a westernised un-authentic version of Martial Arts Training. Competition classes are based around the sport of martial arts which is totally different to the Art of Martial Arts. We teach traditional self-defence, not for the purpose of playing games. If you wish to compete in competitions there is no harm in that and we would encourage any form of healthy activity, however, do not be disappointed if you’re training does not meet your expectations in an actual self-defence situation.
