Our Martial Arts club in Basingstoke has an objective to be socially inclusive regardless of age, race, gender or ability. We are proud to be a Sport England Clubmark Club for All. There is no reason why the Martial Arts can’t be practiced by everyone with, if necessary, the right adaptation to the individual.

Over the years, we have successfully trained people with special needs including both physical disabilities and learning / mental disabilities . We have experience with conditions such as Cerebral Palsy, Deafness, Visual Impairment, Amputees, Autism, Aspergers, Dyspraxia, ADHD and other learning difficulties. There is no reason why we can’t inspire self-esteem in EVERY adult and child and that includes those with special needs. Adults or parents who have a child with special needs are welcome to contact us, so that we can discuss together a suitable training plan based on your requirements. Training in Judo / Kung Fu / Karate can serve as an important corollary to other physical, behavioural and psychological treatment programs. When Martial Arts are taught with the appropriate teaching method, everyone has the chance to feel like a success, whether in a group, semi-private, or private class session. There is often a misconception, particularly where someone shows potentially violent tendencies, that teaching them a martial art will make them more violent. In fact, our experience has shown that martial arts training actually has the opposite effect. Through our structured teaching method, people have a safe outlet for their physical exuberance and work to develop self-control, helping them to manage fear, anger and frustration. They develop a respect for their own body as well as for others and can master the art of relaxation and breath control. Many children with special needs have already benefited from Martial Arts classes with the Academy in Basingstoke.
