This what our members think about our training.

Hey Mark,
I just wanted to say a massive thank you for your classes these past few weeks. Although sometimes my muscles disagree, I have absolutely enjoyed doing krav so many times a week and even the early morning sessions (I don’t even get up that early for work usually!!).

Its a massive help right now, not only physically but mentally too and I can’t tell you how much I appreciate it and everything you’ve done to bring the gang together and ensure we can still train.
Really really big thank you!!
Ellis C

Evening Mark and Natalie,

Hope you are resting after today’s sessions.
It has been 8 weeks since the lock down started.

Will you accept my thanks for carrying on with the lessons online.
The 5 lessons a week are really helping with my fitness levels and I love them. I know my weight is still an issue but these sessions I feel are helping slowly.

The morning lessons I thought I would not be able to get out of bed but I have managed to join the morning fit in 30 clases.
I do appreciate the time and effort that you and Natalie put into the Krav sessions.

Thank you again for your time and energy.
Peter S

I want to get old gracefully. I want to have good posture, I want to be healthy and be an example to my children.

– Sting

The best way to avoid sickness is to practice healthy habits. Especially when colds and the flu are going around, you should wash your hands and avoid touching your face and sharing drinks. On top of these external precautions, you can also focus on your body’s internal defenses.

There are several simple steps you can take to improve your immune system naturally. The human body is built to protect itself and fight off illnesses. By taking proactive steps to boost your immune system, you can help keep your body healthy and happy.

Stop Harmful Habits

The first step to boosting your immune system is to cut harmful habits out of your life. These may be hard habits to break, but doing so will drastically improve your bodies health. Stop smoking and drink alcohol in moderation are two significant steps to improving your health and boosting your immune system.

Eat a Balanced Diet

Eating a balanced diet not only helps to improve your health overall, but when you focus on a diet high in fruits and vegetables, your body gets the nutrients it needs to keep your immune system running strong. Focusing on certain foods will help you get the nutrients you need to live a healthy life. For example:

Stay Fit

Staying active is key to a healthy and balanced lifestyle. Because exercising is vital to maintaining a healthy body in general, staying fit is essential if you want to help naturally boost your immune system. Regularly working out promotes good circulation throughout the body. Having good blood circulation helps the cells of your immune system cycle through the body more efficiently. Adding some light cardio to your daily routine can help get your blood circulating and improve your overall wellness.

Sleep Well and Reduce Stress

A good night’s sleep is essential to keeping your immune system in check. Studies show that during sleep, your immune system works at its peak performance. So if you’re looking to boost your immune system naturally, you can start by improving your sleep patterns. Some ways to promote healthy sleep and low-stress levels are:

By implementing these factors into your daily routine, you can get on a better, more efficient sleep schedule. Sleeping well also helps reduce stress, ultimately promoting a healthy immune system.

Supplement Your Body’s Collagen Levels

If you’re focusing on health and wellness as a way to boost your immune system, adding collagen to your diet is a great way to improve your collagen levels. Collagen is a protein that acts as the bond that holds your muscles, tendons, and tissue together. Collagen is also known to help support gut health. The many benefits of collagen four your gut help to support your body’s immune system. Collagen works in the gut by rebuilding the gut’s tissue with essential amino acids.

Along with helping to improve gut health and immunity, you will also see an improvement with skin, hair, and nail health. Collagen also works to increase energy levels and help the body stay active. All of these benefits can help keep your immune system strong and healthy.

Focus On A Healthy Life

I think that age as a number is not nearly as important as health. You can be in poor health and be pretty miserable at 40 or 50. If you’re in good health, you can enjoy things into your 80s.

– Bob Barker

When trying to boost your immune system naturally, the key is to make smart changes that improve your overall wellness. By actively working towards a healthy lifestyle, your immune system will benefit greatly. Along with a healthy immune system, you will be improving your body’s overall health, leading to better weight management, more energy, healthier hair, skin, and nails, and much more. With intentional habit changes, you can beat the flu this up-coming flu season.

If you’re short on time and space but still want to exercise, you’ll be hard-pressed to find a workout more effective than high-intensity interval training (HIIT). By combining short bursts of effort with even shorter rest times, you’ll be able to push your limits, increase endurance, and burn more fat than you would with steady-state cardio.

But perhaps the biggest perk is that you can accomplish all of this in 30 minutes or less. Any small room or space outside will do, and you’ll be using your own body weight, so you don’t need any equipment.

30-Minute, No-Equipment HIIT Workout

Directions: You’ll do three rounds of this workout, which consists of five exercises in total. For the first round, do each exercise for 40 seconds and rest between each exercise for 20 seconds. During the second round, aim for 50 seconds of work with 30 seconds of rest, and in the final round, one minute of work with 40 seconds of rest. Don’t forget to warm up with some dynamic stretches and cool down with some soothing static stretches.

Exercises:

Squat jumps

Mountain climbers

Superman to plank

Reverse lunge with a twist

High knees

Our growing softness, our increasing lack of physical fitness, is a menace to our security.

– John F. Kennedy

Dear All,

It is with a heavy heart and the hardest decision we have ever had to make, however following the government guidelines/ advice and partial closures at our venues, we have no other choice but to suspend all classes and events for the time being with effect from this evening.

We know everyone has very different thoughts and opinions on the situation however we feel this is the best decision to be made as a club for everyone’s health and safety. We value our members dearly and want to keep you all as safe as possible and abide by the current government guidelines I’m absolutely GUTTED

THE EXCITING news is that we will be moving onto our Online LIVE STREAM Training platform for now so your classes remain, and we can bring you some innovative self-defence classes and personal security training LIVE STREAMED to your phone, tablet or computer.

We will also be offering fitness classes online too… In addition, there will be awards, prizes, and certificates online for you all.

In the midterm, I’m hoping to stream LIVE classes online for juniors (7-12 years), PLUS some special daytime class for children while they are off school.

These will be very interactive while the kids are at school with some BRILLIANT daytime online classes, please watch this place.

We are super excited to be teaching these for you and get set for some brilliant classes from your home. I’ll be letting you all have a full timetable and information as soon as I can.

A MASSIVE THANKYOU

As a thank you for everyone supporting us and continuing to be a member of Krav Maga Taunton & Bridgwater through these challenging times, once this has all “blown over” we will be setting dates for FREE workshops, extra classes and events for all our members.

We will also be introducing some brilliant online workshops for FREE delivering highly engaged classes that keep you not only learning but developing mindset and continue training during these testing times.

Thank you again for your continued support and we promise to deliver some exceptional classes for all our members and add so much value as we navigate through this. We hope this short term as much as you all do and can return to normal service as soon as possible depending on government advice.

Thank you all for understanding.

WE WILL BE BACK IN CLASS SOON

For now, we go online and continue to train.

Thank you for your support

Mark

Hi guys,

I had a very productive meeting with the BKMA and other instructors this afternoon. I have reviewed the government advice and it is looking extremely likely that the UK is heading for a lockdown sometime in the future.

The advice to avoid unnecessary contact and pubs, clubs, restaurants is now in place however this is not stating that we absolutely must close our doors yet and therefore like some of my colleagues we are going to continue training until further advice is given of course your safety is as always of upmost importance.

As a reminder the key adjustments to training are below:

• All training kit will be disinfected before and after use.

• Techniques will be non-contact and classes focused more on physical development

• Minimal contact drills implemented during training e.g. no ground survival.

• Hand sanitizer will be provided please use this before and after every session.

• We won’t be providing spare gloves or focus pads for use during this period.

• If you or a member of your household have symptoms, please self-isolate and avoid the class until 14 days elapsed.

• If you are particularly concerned as you or a loved one is in a high-risk category, then please avoid training until this settles down.

• Please keep checking for updates as government advice is changing daily.

Lastly, I want to reiterate that I truly value your continued support. The club like most other small businesses operates on very small margins so this emergency could genuinely end our club should members decide to stop memberships on mass (government bailouts will not apply to me as self-employed) of course I will do my best to keep the club going wherever possible.

We will look for interim training solutions regardless and work out ways to make up on missed training once this blows over. As always, I will endeavor to over-deliver (its going to be a goody) and compensate for any missed training later this year.

Thank you all for your support. Mark

Coronavirus (COVID-19): Latest Information and Advice

Further to recent communications with the BKMA/ other instructors, and with Coronavirus (Covid-19) remaining a public health issue, I’d like to update you on our ongoing response to the issue.

I am reviewing the situation on a regular basis to assess the threat of Covid-19 to the club. As an association we remain led by the Government’s response, which is currently for the UK population to go about their business as usual until further notice, but to take the following precautions:

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds or use an alcohol-based hand sanitiser (containing more than 60% alcohol). This is particularly important after taking public transport.
  • Always wash your hands when you get home or into work.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in a bin.
  • Put used tissues in the bin straight away and wash your hands afterward.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Try to avoid close contact with people who are unwell.

If you become unwell and believe you have been exposed to Covid-19 you should call NHS 111 (or in an emergency 999) to seek expert medical advice.  Please then advise us of any impact on you by contacting me on 07986 516337.  If you feel fine but believe you have been exposed to Covid-19 please follow the same advice.

As a precautionary measure we are also taking the following actions to ensure that the club is prepared for the potential escalation of the virus:

  1. We are continually updating guidance on our website. Please take a look HERE. We will also be providing you with regular updates in class. 
  • I confirm that wherever possible the club will continue as normal. But I ask that no member attends training if their place of work or child’s school has been shut due to Covid-19, and not to return until it re-opens.  Official guidance can be found here and an excellent video here
  • I will be conducting contingency planning to ensure that we are as fully prepared as possible for all eventualities, and the club can continue to operate effectively.  This includes considering the impact of class closures, illness amongst instructors, members and/or close family, together with various other factors such as restrictions imposed on our activities by national or local authorities.
  • We are also looking at the impact on gradings, seminars or other events that could be affected by Covid-19 and are conducting risk assessments and developing restrictions as they arise. This includes:
  • Restricting the use/ sharing of Focus Mitts during classes.
  • I will no longer be providing Boxing Gloves during class (everyone is encouraged to bring their own).
  • Minimising training that requires close proximity with a training partner (clinching, ground survival etc).
  • Hand sanitiser gel and surface wipes will be made available during class.

Thank you for your help in dealing with this. If you have any further questions, please email contact me.
