Fighting Chance Project 2013
By Aidan McDonald
‘Fighting Chance” started on the 9th January it is in partnership with the Police. The course is for students to learn about mixed martial arts and to develop their confidence. It will help people choose a healthy life style also it supports the fact that a healthy life style is a better life style. The club lets students meet positive role models.
A fighting chance is an opportunity to learn new and interesting skills. This club is held on a Wednesday afternoon.
This club has been started because it is different and interesting to students. It allows students to learn a new skill and gain focus which they can use tom improve their school studies. It helps with the healthy life style message and how to choose a healthy path to follow in life. It is to help encourage students make more positive choices in life.
So far the students have got there yellow belts and are now working towards their orange belts. They have now started their second rotation session and it is a ten week programme. The programme is now coming to the end but will be starting up again in September – see Mrs Smith for more information!
Jake Stockwell was given an award for ‘Outstanding Student’ by the coaches and received a trophy and sash in recognition of his efforts.
