Welcome! Nearly everything you will want to know about Hoshin is here on this website.
Hoshin isn’t your “average” kind of martial art. We “treat eachother with extra kindness”… respect and friendship are highest on our list of priorities. Much emphasis is placed on the moral side of martial arts. Without a reason behind what we are studying, martial arts is just mindless violence. We run some of the best children’s martial arts programs in the country, with attention to manners, good sportsmanship, responsibility, self esteem and trustworthiness.
Our classes are fun, with a high standard of discipline and respect. We do not gain this with fear or punishment; we laugh, play games and have fun, and learn about the important skills of being a “Modern Warrior” through role playing, telling stories and of course, martial arts skills.
Our children’s programs concentrate more on “ukemi”, or rolling and falling skills, along with a life skills and manners program that all students must complete before moving up to the Fire Dragons, or teenage classes.
Teenage students participate in “teen camp”, a special coming of age ceremony to celebrate their joining of the adult classes and becoming young adults. We offer comprehensive Adult programs which also include MMA techniques, and our famous “red belt challenge” is part of these classes.
Adult classes are enjoyable and relaxed, and you will find many different ages and levels of fitness training together in them. Men and Women are always welcome to come and train with our friendly group. All levels have a fitness component to ensure the health of our students. If you aren’t fit you certainly cannot fight and protect yourself.
Importantly, we run extensive bursary programs for financially disadvantaged families. We also do not believe in charging for gradings – everything we do is included in the one amount paid each term. If you are paying too much for your martial arts, give us a try. It should never be about the money. We teach because we love helping to grow responsible young citizens.
