Your Private Introductory Start-Up Offer

Are you a little nervous about starting? That's normal for most people. Even me, the Master Instructor of Cobra Martial Arts & Fitness Centres was very nervous when attending my first lesson as a child, over 30 years ago. When I speak to other students and even current Black Belts and instructors, they tell me that they were also nervous about starting.

Why are we nervous about turning up to the lesson which will positively change the rest of our life? We don't know what to expect! On contemplating picking up the phone to call, or when on the way to our first lesson, some of the questions running through people's minds include:

  1. I am too unfit, overweight, uncoordinated, inflexible, old etc.  I am not sure if I am suitable for Martial Arts? Let me assure you that most of our beginners are one or more of the above when they start. That's why we are here. Besides learning self-defence, fitness and health development is of the main reasons people are drawn to Cobra. As a beginner you will be with other beginners, must train at your own pace and must only do what you can. We will gradually build your fitness with you, over time!

  2. What if they are a bunch 'heroes' or macho men/women, rude with big egos? I won't fit in, nor feel comfortable? You will not encounter this type of person at our school. The macho, egotistical type of personality doesn't last long at Cobra, as they don't resonate with our energy and purpose. These people either change and become more humble, respectful and disciplined, or they are attracted to a centre which matches their personality and intentions. It is not usually long before we see this type of person helping other students rather than thinking of themselves. Cobra is a family martial arts centre and our students evolve as part of the program.

  3. Will I have to fight or spar, or get beaten up? No! Beginners are not allowed to spar unless they specifically request to, as they simply don't know enough. As you progress, if you choose to spar you may do so.

  4. Do I have to do push-ups and other difficult exercises, because I don't think I could manage that? Relax, you only do what you can. Do not compare yourself to the person next to you. The only person you may wish to compete against is yourself of yesterday, working to make small, but ongoing improvements in your health, fitness, martial arts skills and life, each week. This is know as 'kaizen' by the Samurai, meaning, 'continuous improvement', or 'change for the better'.
