Junior Leaders: Personal Development Day

Strengthening Bonds: A-Team Away Day

At Storm Family Martial Arts, our commitment to growth extends beyond the dojo – it’s about nurturing a community where every member has the opportunity to thrive.

Recently, we hosted an unforgettable away day for our A-Team, a group of exceptional junior coaches handpicked for their leadership potential and dedication to martial arts.

Led by Chief Instructor Digger Barnes, a seasoned professional with over 25 years of international corporate experience, the day was filled with learning, camaraderie and inspiration.

With 30 remarkable junior leaders in attendance from our academies in Maidenhead, Bracknell, Warfield, Wokingham, Windsor, Woodley, Farnborough and Aldershot, the atmosphere was electric as we embarked on a journey of empowerment and growth.


A Day of Empowerment

From the moment the kids arrived, the energy was palpable. Under the guidance of Chief Instructor Digger Barnes and our team of experienced instructors, the A-Team members immersed themselves in a variety of personal development activities.

The kids bonded over shared experiences, supported each other through challenges, and celebrated their successes together. And of course, no Storm Family Martial Arts event would be complete without a delicious lunch, enjoyed together as one big family.

Key Topics

Throughout the day, we covered a range of topics aimed at personal and professional development:

Financial Planning: We presented the financials of our business and how we ensure a solid foundation for growth and success, allowing us to make informed decisions and manage resources effectively.

Learning Styles: Exploring different learning styles helps us tailor our teaching methods to accommodate diverse preferences, maximizing learning outcomes for our students.

3 Objectives In Every Class:  Student experience, student development and Instructor Development.

Coaching Models: Adopting coaching models such as “30 Ways To Praise” and the “3 Phase Teaching System” enhances our instructional approach, supporting skill development and cultivating a positive learning environment.

Proactivity: Embracing a proactive mindset empowers us to anticipate challenges and seize opportunities for growth and improvement, driving positive outcomes within our organization.

Productivity Tips: Practical strategies to boost productivity help us optimize efficiency and achieve our personal and professional goals, both at school and at home.

Personal Finance Management: Understanding concepts like compound interest sets our students on the path to financial success, empowering them to build wealth and achieve their long-term financial goals by understanding the importance of money management.

Celebrating Achievements

At the heart of it all was Chief Instructor Digger Barnes, whose passion for martial arts and dedication to student success shone through in every interaction. With his guidance, the A-Team members were not just learning martial arts – they were discovering their own potential as future leaders and role models.

As the day drew to a close, there was a palpable sense of accomplishment and pride in the air. The A-Team members left with new skills, newfound confidence, and a deeper sense of purpose.

And for the team at Storm Family Martial Arts, it was yet another reminder of the incredible impact that martial arts can have on young lives.
