In our final blog post of 2020, we thought we would reflect on what has been the strangest of years, how the global pandemic has affected the martial arts industry, and what we hope will happen next year!
2020 And Coronavirus
If you would have told us back in March of this year that we would be carrying out all our classes online via video and had to keep our school closed, we wouldn’t have believed it.
What Is The Best Martial Art For Self Defence?
Posted: December 09, 2020
Everyone knows that learning a martial art is a great way to boost your confidence, stay fit, and learn how to self-discipline. But many people also take up a martial art to help keep themselves safe knowing they have a good self-defence technique.
In reality, it is rare that most martial arts practitioners would ever need to use their skills in the real world but knowing you can protect yourself, should you need to is a great comfort to some people.
This can especially be true in children and teens who struggle with confidence, women who feel anxious when out on their own or anyone who generally lacks confidence.
How to Get Children Started with Martial Arts
Posted: November 23, 2020
Martial arts are good for kids. This isn’t about exposing them to violence, in what often seems like an increasingly violent world. No, what martial arts training can do is offer children a way to develop self-discipline and self-confidence, while providing them with an excellent source of exercise.
But how should you get children started with martial arts, especially at a time when Covid-19 restrictions are affecting social interaction and leisure activities?
At Ellis Academy of Self Defence, we offer virtual martial arts training for kids, along with our other martial arts programmes.

Not only that but it is an excellent form of exercise, challenging both body and mind.
