Who Goes to Leicester Martial Arts Classes?
You might be asking yourself this question if you are thinking of joining a similar class. Will you fit in? Will you stand out among the other people who will be there? Might you feel a bit silly or odd?
I’d like to put your mind at rest if I can. You see, over the years I’ve been happy to welcome people from all walks of life to our Leicester martial arts classes. A lot of people think of Hollywood films when they think of martial arts. While there is some resemblance to the skills you’ll learn, we’re a long way from Hollywood here in Leicester!
In reality, while you will find young men attending martial arts classes, you’ll find plenty of other people going to those same classes as well. There is no ‘typical person’ who attends our classes. That alone should give you some confidence in finding out more.
The same applies with regard to the reasons why people attend our classes. Some like to learn skills they can use in self-defence if they should ever need them. Others are attending purely because they want to focus their minds on something to reap the benefits. Still more use martial arts as a way to help them towards better fitness and health. And some will attest to a combination of all three.
If you are still unsure, you can drop into a class to try it out before committing yourself on a weekly basis. Whatever image you have in your head of a martial arts class, I’m pretty sure you’ll see something different when you come along. We’ve been running Leicester martial arts classes for quite some time now, so you will always be in good hands if you do decide to join us.
