Martial Arts for Mental Health

I am pleased to announce an initiative started by the Up 4 Mental Health” charity, involving Genryukan Aikido and Folkestone Hypnotherapy.

“Martial Arts for Mental Health” will start on April 2nd 2023, 10am-11:30am at the Folkestone Business Hub.  This FREE activity is for people suffering from anxiety issues, regardless of gender, age, background or abilities. This will be a 6 weeks course, you can join at any time.

The aim is to participate in a friendly activity, with like-minded people. If you’re worried about feeling awkward, you won’t be the only one. You’ll be just fine and you’ll be in good hands. Christophe is a 2nd Dan Aikido instructor, qualified hypnotherapist specialising in anxiety issues, and ex-anxiety sufferer himself. The only rule is “do what you can“. No pressure, no judgment, just a bit of fun, as demonstrated in the video below. 
(IMPORTANT: you will not be expected to be thrown like Tom in this video!)
