School Visits

I have just recently been invited to teach at Taverham Junior, Horsford Primary & Ghosthill Infant School.

Had such an amazing time and thank you to the schools for the invite and for the SESMA students that helped me during the day.

Depending on year group, the classes either played the Dot game or the Against the script and Tennis Ball game.
These helped with their awareness skills, personal space, reading body language and scanning.
Basic katrate moves were taught and then partner work which had hidden learning including trust, control, focus and concentration.

So much taught in so little time, which makes martial arts such a great activity to take part in.

If you would like SESMA to teach at your school, then please email Master Wayne with your name, child name and contact name at your school.
Please put Subject SCHOOL VISIT

Thank you to those that took part in the decoration of the EqualiT-Rex (named by Sensei Rhys), there were some great designs from all age groups and we used them all to cover our T-Rex.

A special thank you goes out to all who helped raise the money to purchase the model back in October last year. Also to  William’s Way Estate agents who contributed £450 to buying the model.
