Working with SEND

The instructors are keen to help develop every karate, kickboxing, self-defence student to their full potential at the Norwich Studio.

SESMA is proud to have helped 100’s of children feel more confident about themselves and contributed to improving school work by increasing children’s concentration and focus.

Parents of children with learning difficulties like Autism, ADD and ADHD have found that participating in a martial art has greatly improved their child’s concentration and co-ordination.

Master Wayne has worked with schools inc The Wherry School with students that have SEND, helping children and young adults with social skills, focus, co-ordination and behavioral issues with great results.
