New Marston Primary School, Copse Ln, Oxford OX3 0AY
Hello and welcome,
Let us introduce ourselves, we are Mr and Mrs Harrison and we are a husband and wife team. We are both lead instructors and franchise owners with Matt Fiddes Martial Arts Oxfordshire.
The ethos of our schools is to promote a family, fun environment where no one feels left out or unwelcome. We want to build a community where students can share experiences and be there to support each other both in and out of class.
We believe that everyone, child or adult, can benefit from Martial Arts and the life skills that surround our organisation and its curriculum. It doesn’t matter to us whether you’re a complete beginner or have previous experience, we will treat you all the same. It has helped change our lives for the better - giving us something to do together and making us fitter and healthier, let it change yours too!
I [Mrs Harrison] introduced us to Matt Fiddes Martial Arts. After the birth of our little boy I felt incredibly unfit and overweight. I didn’t want to be unable to do things with him as he grew older because I was too out of shape or couldn’t keep up. I wanted to be a fun mum who chased around after him. My introduction to the MF Organisation was via the Ladies Only program at MF Carterton. I remember my first night, I was incredibly shy and nearly didn’t go in. However, I was greeted at the doors and made to feel really welcome. After that first class I was hooked and when I got home, I told my husband all about it. He tried out at MF Faringdon and our journey has progressed from there. Two of our older children already train with us and have started their journey to becoming Junior Instructors. The confidence they have gained is amazing and the positive feedback from school makes it all worth it. We can’t wait until our little boy starts his own MF journey so that we can all train together.
Mr and Mrs Harrison
