Testimonials

My daughters Maddy and Eloise have been attending classes at Matt Fiddes Martial Arts Cheshire for about six years now. As a parent I find their training has developed their strength of character, commitment, knowledge of self-defence and the importance of staying in shape. In every class they work hard while having fun – they have built a friendship group and look forward to their classes every week. They have a true sense of success in what they have achieved.

Joshua started training with Master James when he was 3 years old back in 2013, Joshua is now nearly 9 and has competed and won many medals in the Northern Championships as well as now being a red belt. The achievements and skill level are great however, it is the superb ability to lead that Master James has, his empathy and coaching skills that really make him stand out. Joshua has always had lots of energy and Master James has fostered that and allowed Joshua to be himself whilst nurturing him to his full potential. The environment is positive and promotes respect whilst having a warmth to it and mast James seeks to understand all his pupils as individuals. He is motivations and inspires the team to achieve – I could not recommend it highly enough and it has really helped Joshua build his confidence and belief in himself.  Throughout Joshua’s 6 years there, he has always loved attending and he has developed so much under the care of Master James.
Our younger son, Charlie now attends as well and has since he was3, he is now 4 and is just about to grade for his Orange belt. The grading system gives the children confidence and an opportunity to be recognised for their hard work. The whole system builds self-esteem and is an excellent setting to build physical fitness and techniques but also a mental agility and self-confidence.
I cannot recommend the club highly enough, the whole ethos and positive energy is superb.

My son James joined Matt Fiddes in 2012. He had been wanting to learn martial arts for a long time but I had struggled to find a class as most instructors would not entertain him due to his autism. Master James did not even make this an issue. He put James at ease immediately and, over the years has helped James to develop his skills, respect and confidence. 6 years on and now on the leadership course, James  is thriving at Matt Fiddes and his fitness levels have greatly improved.
My young daughter’s Ruby and Grace have recently joined the junior class. One of my daughters had a real issue with confidence but within a few classes she has had a real boost and even says “I wish I could go every day!”
The children enjoy their classes so much and after watching his siblings having so much fun,  my youngest son is now ready to join the Matt Fiddes family.

Our daughter Emma has been with matt fiddes for 7 years and is now a second dan. We wanted Emma to join to gain confidence and grow in herself. She has much respect for herself and those around her.
It’s made her very self disciplined in her school work and home life. We would highly recommend matt fiddes.

Dylan started with Matt Fiddes when he was 4 after deciding he wanted to be a Power Ranger when he grew up, 18 months down the line and he no longer has the Power Ranger dream, but he still absolutely loves his martial arts. He takes such pride in his progression, with every belt comes a beaming smile and a visit to all of his family to share the news, the pinnacle coming when he got student of the year 2018! He’s about to go for his first competition as he moves onwards and upwards through the program and we are all excited to see how far he goes.
Master James is amazing, the kids adore him and he’s always on hand with advice and support.
It’s always the highlight of the week for Dylan, and I love hearing all about his new moves. Signing him up was one of the best decisions we have made.
