What to expect

We’re a friendly bunch here at HAVOC, and we welcome anyone from 14 years old upwards, whatever their abilities are. Classes begin with a brief warm up followed by a focus on technique, which you’ll have chance to practise with a partner and under the supervision of an expert instructor. You won’t be expected to keep pace with the senior students if you’re a beginner, and if you’re a seasoned martial artist, we won’t hold you back.

We like to keep the environment relaxed and there’s no pressure to do anything you aren’t comfortable with – although we do encourage our students to push themselves a little. Egos are left at the door and students and instructors alike approach techniques with curiosity and openness – after all, each of us is different and what works for some won’t work for others.

As Sifu Jay Cooper puts it: “Most combat training gives you a series of weapons to use… we prefer to give you a box of tools.”
