  • Winner 2020 Prestige Self Defence Training Centre of the Year

    Prestige Award 2020 Self Defence Training Centre of the Year for Leeds and West Yorkshire 2020 has certainly been a different type of year. This year was the Academies 25th Anniversary and what we hoped would be a year of celebrations has resulted in a year of survival. This has certainly been one of the hardest years we have had as an Academy, and we are fortunate to have some great people who have supported the Academy this year and all the preceding years. We have not until this moment acknowledged that at the start of the first lock down the academy was recognised by a business organisation. The Academy has been recognized as the 2020 Self ....

  • Gradings - What are they for?

    Gradings – What are they for? For anyone who has ever taken even a passing note of the Martial Arts cant help but notice that gradings make up an important part of the training. But just what are gradings? And why are they important and are they still relevant in today’s day and age. If we are to look back over the history of Martial Arts, Gradings in the form that we see now are a relatively new phenomenon. In traditional martial arts the transmission of knowledge is a long and timely process, which is signified by the handwritten transition of the school you are studying once you have reached a certain level. Today in the Martial Arts rank is seen as your ....

  • Which Martial Art is for me?

    Which Martial Art is for me? Which Martial art is for me is a question that we get on a regular basis from prospective students when they first enquire about training. In a lot of ways, the answer is fairly easy, it’s the style that appeals to you the most, and taking part in any Martial Art is better than not doing any training. But is that an answer that will make sense to everyone, and again it is a simple answer, but in this scenario, it is no. If you are presently looking into Martial Arts then there are a few questions that you should ask yourself before you start, which will help you in your search.
    What appeals to you about the Martial Arts?
    Who is this for, you ....

  • The Academy has reverted back to Kokoro Academy of Martial Arts

    After being a part of Premier Martial Arts for the last two years we have made the decision to revert back to being Kokoro Academy of Martial Arts. This has not been an easy decision and in no way reflects on Premier Martial Arts in anyway. This was purely a decision on the direction that we wanted to take the Academy going forward. We thank everyone who we have come into contact with over the last two years and wish them all the best going forward. The Academy and all websites will be going through a complete rebranding over the coming weeks, please bear with us as we make all the necessary changes. Some things like Social Media have already changed, we look forward with excitement to what ....

  • Time Management

    What Time do we have?
    At the end of the day we all only have a small amount of time in a day to achieve what we want. No matter what we try to achieve, we are limited by 24 hours or 1440 minutes or if you are really into numbers 86400 seconds, seems a lot right? Let's break this down, if on average you get up at 7am, get ready for work, breakfast etc and leave the house at 8am, your now down to 23 hours, your commute to work is an hour, 22 hours, now assuming you only work 8 hours you are down to 14 hours left already, don't forget you have a hour commute home, 13 hours, now you need to prepare your evening meal and more importantly eat it, say in total 1.5 hours, your now down to ....
