Many people believe that martial arts are all about combat. However, whilst combat was an unavoidable part of ancient life, traditional martial arts is also governed by a holistic philosophy for success and wellness.

I would like to recommend John Gill's martial motivation session to managers who would like to give their work teams a renewed sense of purpose. John has run a few motivation sessions with our employees and each of the participants has emerged feeling invigorated and motivated. After the sessions, we noticed a marked difference in their attitudes. John takes a very hands-on, physical amd practical approach to motivation and is a walking example of the sucess of his methods.
