Mr Ken Wedge and Family

"My thanks go out to the Bonthuys family for all their help, expertise, and the time that they have taken in bringing out the best in my family. I am so proud of them all and without the excellent proficiency and expertise off the academy instructors then they wouldn’t be where they are now."

Thank you so much for the training session you conducted for my team at our quarterly staff meeting. It is clear that the discipline and focus of the martial arts world is very relevant to people in business.

Chris McShane, Headteacher, Winton School, Andover

Winton School has been working in partnership with Martial Art World (MAW) for them to deliver part of our foundation learning programme. This programme is primarily focused on getting young people employment ready and therefore concentrates on personal development areas such as building confidence, effective communication, self discipline, problem solving and teamwork. The work they have undertaken on our behalf has been delivered to the highest professional standards and I am extremely confident in recommending them to others.

"We can evidence noticeable improvements in determination, self-control, confidence, assertiveness, working together as well as the students own personal fitness. We have also witnessed an impact on the wider curriculum as students become more focused on what they have to achieve."

"I have found being taught by Master Bonthuys a valuable and rewarding experience, he has always demonstrated a high degree of professionalism and knowledge; he has never failed to understand the needs of his students.
