When Mr Wilkes told me he’d like me to become an assistant instructor I just about laughed. “Me, an instructor? That’s crazy.” I didn’t feel confident in my own ability let alone teaching others. But I was also very honoured and decided to give it a go. I have developed so much more confidence in myself and my ability and have realised that through a lot of hard work, anything is possible. Martial arts teaches you courtesy and respect, not just for others but also for yourself. Martial arts means more to me than just self-defence. To me, it means to condition yourself, to become a confident and caring person, to perceive the world in a positive way with a positive attitude, and to exhibit kindness and compassion to everyone around you.
