Hello there! This is Coach Andy! I have been practising martial arts since I was eight years old and have a brown belt under Wutian Martial Art Institute. My journey began with Sifu Jai Chan, who taught me from a young age and I discovered my passion in coaching lower belts and my peers since age 12. Now, I work as one of the main coaches at Wutian Martial Art Institute. It brings me great joy to be able to pass on my knowledge and experience to the next generation of martial artists.
My love for sports does not stop at martial arts. I love to challenge myself to play different kinds of sports to test my abilities. In the past, I have worked as a multi-sport coach and football coach in Canada and the USA. Currently, I play football with a semi-professional team in London. I believe that constantly pushing ourselves to improve is the key to success in all areas of life.
As a coach, I take pride in instilling in my students the values of perseverance, humility, and respect. These values are not only important in martial arts, but also in daily life. Building character and mental resilience is just as important as physical strength and agility. Through my classes, I aim to help my students manage their emotions, overcome obstacles, and develop a positive mindset. These skills are essential for success in school, relationships, and other areas of life.
I firmly believe that martial arts can help people become better versions of themselves, and I am dedicated to helping my students reach their full potential.
Hello everyone! I’m Coach Colleen, a martial arts coach, and I’m excited to share with you my passion for working with children.
As a coach, I believe that every child has the potential to become a confident, empowered, and a skilled martial artist. My goal is to help children achieve this potential by providing them with the physical and mental tools they need to succeed.
One of the most rewarding aspects of my work is watching children develop their skills and gain confidence in themselves. I love seeing the joy on their faces when they realise that they have accomplished something they didn’t think was possible. This sense of achievement not only helps them in their martial arts training but also translates to other areas of their lives.
In my classes, I like to focus on allowing children to implement new ideas and techniques. I encourage them to take risks and try new things, and I create an environment where mistakes are not only acceptable but also encouraged. This approach helps children to develop a growth mindset, which is essential for success in any area of life.
I have been trained in martial arts for 15 years where I gained my brown belt in Karate, and red two star belt in Jeet Kune Do. I also specialise in weapon combat.
Outside of my work, I’m also a painter and artist. I love reflecting the beauty and art of the world through my artwork, and I believe that this passion helps me to be a better coach. It reminds me of the importance of creativity, expression, and personal growth, which are all essential components of martial arts training.
In conclusion, working with children as a martial arts instructor is one of the most fulfilling experiences I’ve ever had. I’m honoured to play a role in helping young people become confident, skilled, and empowered individuals. Whether your child is just starting out in martial arts or is looking to improve their skills, I would be delighted to work with them and help them achieve their goals.
