Since April 200I
I have been training with the School of Martial Arts (S.O.M.A.) at the
Brookes Sports Centre in Oxford.
In the Netherlands
I have been doing Shaolin Kempo Kungfu for four years.
I like this Martial
Art for its beauty, body control and explosiveness.
From a wide variety
of Martial Arts in Oxford I chose SOMA because of its variety in the Chinese
Martial Art styles.
are based on possible real life situations and defending and attacking
techniques are taught. The students are stimulated to think during the
sessions about possible applications and the theory of techniques. Some
students with gradings in other Martial Arts can show the class techniques
in their own styles, which makes every session different.
The students range
from beginners to the more experienced student and they are all very enthusiastic.
The atmosphere is great and every session is a pleasure.
It is an honour
for me to train with the School of Martial Arts.
Keep the balance!
