Leader In Me

Kicx is proud to announce we are the FIRST martial arts school in the UK to be accepted as an official Leader in Me School. Leader in Me is a whole-school improvement process based on the idea that everyone can be a leader.

Over the next few weeks this site will be updated with lots of material which will help everyone in the school.  Remember, The 7 Habits is not just a childrens programme, it was actually developed into a kids programme over many years.  The foundation programme is still an adult personal development programme called The Leader In Me

Character 1st

Kicking and punching is easy.  To be able to teach kids the real core values of Karate is a whole different thing.  Karate for kids is a journey into a world of principles.  Things like manners, positive attitude, self belief and focus are just some of the topics that are covered in the Character 1st life skill programme.  The kids have FUN, while learning self defence skills, getting fit and Life Skills.

Our Core Values

We are using martial arts as the vehicle to teach Life Skills. Even though I want the students to turn into wonderful martial artist, this is NOT my outcome.  My goal is to introduce the wonderful world of Personal Development to kids, no matter what age.  I do this by teaching the kids to punch, block and kick, and throwing in character education as I do it.
