Fighting fit family martial arts academy has been teaching the Belfast community martial arts for 12years now.We are a blackbelt leadership academy.We are focused not just in teaching people the physical side of the martial arts,but also the attributes of a blackbelt leader , in the dojo + in their community.For over a decade now we have been Belfasts premier martial arts academy.
Thought I would do an end of year message now, .2012 was a good year, for fightingfit.We opened 3 new satellite locations promoted 3 new instructors. Had grandmaster Dossett and Master Jim over for an exceptional weekend. We Had 3 battle of the braves …producing 3 titles in the process. Turned 2 fighters pro.We will have (fingers crossed)Produced 5 new blackbelts+1 new 2nd dan+1 new 3rd dan.I was also honoured again independantly with my 6th danbeing ratified by m.a.a.s and s.c.i.
We have produced some of the finest junior and senior martial artists around. Opened our fight depot including our mma program and team. Opened up our Brazilian jujitsu + muay Thai program. Welcoming two new instructors to the academy sensei’s Richard+Chris.Reintroduced the much missed tiny tots program+lil dragon leadership+hyper pro training.
On top of all this we have reemphasised the fact that were all part of a family …the fighting fit family. I am proud of everyone from our 2 yrs. old future stars-our junior future champions-to our senior warriors.
2013 is set to be bigger and better again; I have spent the last 8 weeks working on some things that are really exciting.
