CARISMA, the Cambridge Riverside Martial Arts, is launching a new children course in addition to its existing adult ones, following the success of its over 9 years of activities with adults and teenagers. A pilot course will start on Tuesday 6th November, immediately after half term, to last for 7 weeks and it will be open to children, male and female, aged between 8 and 12.
The curriculum of the course will be very similar to the one used for the adults courses although having a reduced and more controlled level of contact to ensure maximum safety during practice.
Massimo Gaetani, president and head coach of CARISMA, announced this decision by stating: “we have been receiving many enquiries about children course over the years and for a number of reasons we were not in the position of offering them. The time is now right to train children too…”
The course will initially run once per week, on Tuesdays between 5 and 6PM. For more information please contact us via Email or Phone.
Given the great success of the previous years’ events we decided to organize another SC in the same pleasant location: the countryside of Hungary. Location for the event is a village called Csokonyavisonta in the Somogy region, in the South East area of the country, by the Croatian border. The main aim of the SC was both training and having great time during a 6 days break.
Training was organised in the morning (apart from the Thursday, when we trained in the afternoon) just after breakfast and it included techniques and drills of Kickboxing, Multicombat, Winch Chun and Self Defence. Each session lasted two to three hours and it was a great opportunity for all particpants to both learn new techniques and training methodologies, improving at the same time overall performance of known techniques. At the end of each session we organized interesting trips to various locations in the surrounding areas, such as wine tasting in Badacsony, visit to Pecs and chilling out by the pool.
