"When I walked into the dojo for the first time I was welcomed by everyone in the class. I never had the feeling of being the "new guy" as I did in other dojos. The friendly atmosphere makes you feel more like hanging out with friends."
Felipe - Norwich
"I've been training with Steve for five and a half years now. Although I had studied traditional Karate when I was younger, by the time I took up Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu I had'nt trained at all for fifteen years, and was pretty unfit, to put it mildly. I was also nearly forty, and worried that I might well be a bit too old to resume training in the martial arts. After a chat with Steve, I started attending classes.I found myself actually looking forward to going training! ( rather than regarding it as a bit of a painful chore, as had sometimes been the case in the past with a more traditonal style). I'm happy to say that I've been training ever since. My fitness has improved out of all recognition to what it was, I've lost weight, and I am also pleased to say that I now hold a Blue Belt grade.
If you hav'nt trained in a martial art before, or think that you may be a bit too old, or not fit enough, don't worry, give it a go. I really can't recommend the club and Steve's coaching highly enough"
Neil Chandler - Great Yarmouth
"I've trained martial arts off and on for about 5 years until a knee injury forced me to quit. I became interested in BJJ through watching MMA events. Luckily Steve was running training sessions at my gym. After speaking to Steve i was looking forward to my first session. I have found BJJ has enabled me to learn a new martial art without risking injury to my knee. The structure of the sessions is well thought out, Steve has a gift for teaching and makes sure your understand each movement in a technique and are comfortable with each technique before moving on to the next. The sessions help me keep in shape and each time i am able to reaffirm my knowledge of techniques learnt previously, be shown new techniques and practise sparring in a controlled environment. Thanks Steve for bringing BJJ to Norfolk!"
I was worried, that I'd be on my own and wouldn't have a partner. But once in, I realised everyone was in the same boat as me, new, unfit and unsure. And I quickly made friends and so glad I made that first call.
Being a little older, I thought I may have missed my chance, but after a chat with Steve, I realised I still got some fight in me. I love the classes, I get to meet a bunch of people the same as me, I'm not in shape or an athlete, but I want to be in shape and have fun, the beginner classes are perfect for me. And now and then pop in on the fighters classes.
One thing that stuck out for me was the fact that everyone wants to help me. Even the high level guys, I feel part of something, I may never be as good as them, but that doesn't matter, as I am part of a great team and help them where I can.
