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. This ancient philosophy incorporates medicine, healing therapies, and fitness for both mind and body. Martial arts was the worlds first system of self improvement, and in many ways, modern science is just catching up.

Participants will learn mental mastery techniques and strategies commonly used by Olympic and elite athletes, from performance coach Richard Thorpe. In addition, martial arts master John Gill, a 5th Dan Black belt in Hapkido and taekwondo, will also teach participants a selection of the worlds best self defence techniques. Not only are the physical skills useful, but like martial arts training, they act as metaphors for the daily challenges we face in business and life.

- How to develop a positive winning attitude
- The art & science of setting goals for success

Testimonials

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.
