    positive review  My daughter has been coming to this school since she was 5. She is nearly 10 years old now! She really enjoys her weekly sessions where she can let off steam after a long day sat in school. The class perfectly combines physical exercise and Martial arts techniques with mindfulness, self control and a good dose of FUN! Her favourite activities in the dojo are partner exercises and 'pin to win' ???? Would 100% recommend this class X
