“Will Martial Arts make my child violent?”

Absolutely not! We don’t teach kids how to kick and punch so they can go down the street and beat up the neighbour’s kid.

Instead, we teach kids self-defence as a tool for personal growth and development.

Kids learn to treat others as they want to be treated. They learn to respect all living things – from their parents to pets.

Often, kids who were violent before they joined our class changed, and became non-violent. So no, Martial Arts won’t make your child violent!


“Is Martial Arts just for boys? Or can my girl take Martial Arts too?”

 The truth is, there are just as many girls in many of our classes as there are boys.

Girls love Martial Arts just as much, and get the same fulfilment out of it as boys do.

Also, if I’ve learned anything in my years of teaching, it’s that girls are just as tough as boys. Many are even tougher!

So you don’t have to worry about your little girl getting hurt, or feeling scared because she’ll be practicing with boys. In fact, the boys may even be the ones who are scared.

A Modern Approach to Self -Defense

The philosophy at LBBA Martial Arts follows an approach that centers on the art of self defence.

We have students who have studied other martial arts for decades only to discover that the training they had received did not prepare them to effectively defend themselves. Since joining LBBA Martial Arts they now know that they are equipped mentally and physically to deal with aggression.

Fitness for a busy world

Ask someone where you should go for self-defence training and 90% of people will say a martial arts school. Ask those same people where you should go to get in shape and you'll more likely be directed to the local gym or personal trainer. Yet martial arts is much more effective for shedding those unwanted pounds and feeling more energetic. Also you develop the inner self discipline to stick to your targets and not the reliance on someone else to ‘push’ you.


LBBA Martial Arts’ training comes with many advantages you won’t find in a gym. The combination of quick movements will keep your heart rate up as it strengthens and tones muscles.  Because it involves techniques utilizing hands and feet, many people find that their balance, flexibility and agility increase along with their fitness level. And of course, you’re learning a skill, not just jumping and shaking. Many adults find that because it’s a mental challenge that they never get bored and drop out like you would at a gym.

And finally, we will monitor your progress and class attendance.  It’s a big help achieving your fitness goals knowing that someone is taking a personal interest in your success!
