To Mr Nicholson and all Proaction Martial Arts Instructors/Assistant instructors: I would formally like to express my appreciation to you all for everything that Proaction Martial Arts and particularly you, Sir, have all done for me over the past few years. The support that the club and all its students have all given me has been first rate.
Back in 2007, while walking home through Wellingborough Town Centre after work one night I became the victim of a mugging and a stabbing. I spent some time in hospital and it took me a long time physically, mentally and even longer emotionally to recover but since I joined Proaction Martial Arts & Fitness and had their help and tuition my confidence has improved ten-fold which has made me feel a lot happier even more confident and in control.
Therefore from the bottom of my heart, I’d like to thank all concerned for giving me the opportunity to do a sport that has actually changed my life for the better in so many ways, allowing me to do something that I could never have imagined being capable of doing and loving it.
My little boy is 5 he goes to mighty monkeys it’s great ! His confidence has grown so much and he can’t wait to be a black belt one day!
Loving the classes. Thanks for making me feel welcome everyone xxx
We had a “Mighty Monkey” party for our now 6 year old last Saturday 11th. Our Son had the most amazing time with great instructors Miss Prior & Mr Hill who both went above & beyond making each childs time fun & our lives easier! Our Son was made to feel like a true “ninja” for the day! All his friends had the best time too with them now also wanting “ninja party’s” 🙂 some of them even took their medals & certificates to show in school assembly! If you are thinking of having a party for your child then go for it you won’t regret it!
There is not enough space to write a recommendation for Proaction Martial Arts & Fitness, what an amazing academy, with fantastic instructors . They push and drive you until you think you can give no more , then you just keep giving . Joining Proaction as a family has been the best way of getting fit and learning the art of Taekwondo ….. Just love it 😉
I can highly recommend Proaction Martial Arts as my son joined after being told it would help him gain confidence and would also help him control his temper.
My son was bullied for 4 years on and off at school, sometimes mentally and sometimes physically.
We had been into school speaking with teachers and the head,of which they said they would do all they can to stop it. The bullying carried on until one day he was hurt so bad he had to go to hospital. At this point the school govenors were involved as we’re the police and the kid cautioned with assualt( the kid was 10 years old)
I wouldn’t suggest any form of retaliation as it doesn’t solve anything. My son while being bullied would shut himself off from the whole family and when angry would lash out. It is true those who get bullied eventually become a bully. We saw it happen with our son. It wasnt because he was nasty it was the only way he felt in control.
He went through counselling but found he would still shut himself off. My son is now nearly 13 and joined Proaction 3 years a go. since joining he has become a completely different lad. His confidence had grown, his self control in difficult situations makes me proud as he doesn’t lose his temper now.
I don’t know what I would have done without them. His instructor had a way of getting him to talk about things when I couldn’t. It’s not just martial arts that they learn they learn a lot of essential life skills. they were a great support to me too as a parent. Now my daughter and I are also members of the pro action club.
Can’t believe how much I now LOVE exercise and how my fitness levels have improved over the last year!! Thank you to all the fab instructors :))) xx
Can I just say that ALL you guys at Proaction Martial Arts & Fitness do an awesome job, and everytime I am there (which as you all know is ALOT) I have fun and LAUGH. after many years of Hating exercise, I now look forward to every class. THANK YOU, and a note for those that are affraid of joining a gym or dont like exercise but need to change there way of life, find the time to come along to at least 1 class and see for yourselves how Fab it really is!!!!!!
Alot of people can go through life and not have to many challenges and obstacles put in there way. Myself as a young lad found lifes challenges to hard to deal with, such as mental and physical abuse from my step father and my family breaking up. I only expressed myself in bad ways and went down the route of drugs, cri…me and violence. Which to this day still have to live with little reminders of my past and only wish I could change it. I had my first child kyle who at the age of 5 asked if he could start martial arts after watching many films……… I took him to his first taekwondo lesson and spent many friday evenings watching my son develop his new found love in taekwondo and, developing his life skills such as stranger awareness and first aid along with many other aspects of life, which we as adults take for granted. After many months of having my son pestering me to join the club I eventually plucked up the courage to try for myself……. I’ll never forgot my first night I was so nervous but I was made welcome by the Chief Instructor Mr. Nicholson and all the other students, i was not judged by anyone as an overweight man but was welcomed and encouraged to do the best of my ability and accepted by everyone. I had lost alot of weight and was feeling really good about myself as I had started to find me again instead of being just another person. I left the club after about two years as my finances were tight and could not afford to train, due to my family gaining another member. Two and a half years later Mr. Nicholson along with many of the new instructor team,encouraged me to come back and start training, which I knew would be harder this time round as all the weight I had lost has come back and then a bit more. Never the less I am back training along with my eldest and also my two younger children aswell. We are all made to feel welcome and not judged, being encouraged to do our best and not compared to other people. My middle son Luke has a form of ADHD and can be very challenging most of the time. The Instructor Team despite lukes trying ways, have worked hard with luke helping him gain his new belt which was for me a very special moment as it was for Luke. I would highly recommend Proaction Martial Arts to anyone regardless of age, race and physical ability, as its an amazing club and am very proud to be part of it. Not only can you learn Taekwondo but, you can meet amazing new people. Only thing left to say is why not come along and see for yourself I am sure you wont regret it……..
ProAction are like an extended part of my family now. I’ve been working out with them for over 4 years now and long may it continue!
