The mind is powerful: change your perceptions

I began my martial arts journey unexpectedly, as a young girl I was very “girly” and paid little interest in sport. Until year 9 PE where i completed my first martial arts class. This lead me on to starting it up properly at the gym. 5 years later and Im still obsessed and honestly believe it’s the best commitment I have ever made. As it has helped me become more confident in myself and allowed me to reach a mindful state. My goal is to spread awareness of this particular sport and ensure everyone gives it a try like I did.

With your clearer mind see how much more effective your revision sessions become.
