PCSO Claire Wikeley of the local Safer Neighbourhood policing team, said:
"These sessions give young people the opportunity to get in something that is active while learning focus, discipline, respect and confidence skills."
Mark, dad of a child in the Gleadless classes
"Daniel joined in January & really took to karate and Natasha really quickly ,he has completed one grading & has competed in two comps all because Natasha makes it fun & firm at the same time . Daniel now goes 2 times a week & is learning karate , kick boxing & Bo staff. Daniel had no confidence before he joined state of mind , packing in on rugby & other sports but looks forward to every session at state of mind."
Helen, mum of a child in the Brimington classes
"My son's confidence has really improved since he started training with State of Mind. He is only 5 years old, but is always treated with kindness and patience by Natasha and her colleagues. The classes are fun and engaging and there is never any pressure on the children, they are encouraged to progress at their own pace and above all to enjoy themselves!"
Karen, Adults class
"If you want a good workout, with someone who can tailor make the class to suit the group, then Natasha's classes are the place to be. Natasha's extremely professional and ensures everyone's works to their own capabilities, a true driving force to help you achieve your goals. We really enjoy the classes and arrive back home buzzing, give it ago we are sure you will want to return!"
