April Newsletter 2022

Thank You

SESMA Family,
Thank you to all that donated to the Ukraine JustGiving page that SESMA organized.

With the SESMA’s donation we have raised £1000 add that to the previous donation that SESMA made for Dave’s first trip, the SESMA FAMILY have donated a total….


That is an awesome amount and thank you so much.
The money will be used for much needed supplies and will go direct to the Refugee Centres.

Again thank you all so much, and to the lady that knitted the dog coats.

Enjoy the challenge and ask a friend to join you, it will help keep you motivated.

SESMA Martial Arts £20 referral
SESMA Martial arts website refer a friend


I guess all of us could do with £20 in their pocket or piggy bank.

Well im giving away £20 notes to my students who refer a friend to SESMA

If your friend attends a Free taster and then completes a beginners intro trial course, we will give you £20 for introducing them.

Easy as that.

Either ask them to book via sesma.co.uk and click on the “Student Refer A Friend” button or pick up a Referral Card from your instructor, put your name on it, add your friends details and bring back to the studio.

We will do the rest and you could receive a £20 note.
