Sensei Barry is without doubt one of the finest instructors I have ever come across. Having come to him as a black belt from Tae Kwon Do I was blown away by his depth of knowledge, his skills, teaching ability and humility. I had searched for the right club for many months and knew after one lesson this was the place for me. Great club atmosphere, students from all backgrounds including the armed forces and other martial arts, and a real practical and functional approach to all techniques – his knife defence is astounding and again very practical. If you want to be a truly rounded martial artist with skills that will change your life from day 1, look no further

I started class 6 months ago, I had absolutely no history of Martial arts or any sort of hand to hand combat. The welcoming atmosphere, quickly made me feel that I was part of the club. Although there is plenty of information to absorb, it is structured in bite size chunks that build up as your skill level increases. It honestly feels like you are having one on one coaching. Ego’s are left outside the door. I have never felt overwhelmed or intimated at the dojo. For me it’s about confidence, defence, self-awareness, learning to escape from situations, fitness and weight loss. I feel that Ju Jitsu is a skill, one of those skills that you hope you never need to use, but if you do need it, you’ll be glad you know it!

I started training at the club in October 2008, although it doesn’t seem that long ago! I don’t have a background in martial arts but I was immediately impressed by what I saw. The techniques that were demonstrated looked practical, straightforward and uncomplicated and I was immediately hooked, although to my disgust I quickly discovered I had no co-ordination and even less stamina….but everything in life has a learning curve, and training in Ju jitsu at the club has been a particularly worthwhile and enjoyable experience. I know it’s a cliché, but I’ve learnt a lot, and also learnt a lot about myself, through participating in training at the club. The standard of instruction is excellent. Sensei Barry Harte and his Dan grades make it all look simple and easy which I believe is the benchmark of quality instruction, and size and strength isn’t important, it’s about technique. As they say, ‘the devil is in the detail’. But don’t be fooled…you’ll sweat, and sometimes you’ll feel like collapsing, because the training is both mentally and physically challenging, but it’s also fascinating and very rewarding, and there’s always a very friendly atmosphere in the dojo

I have trained in a variety of martial arts growing up and I can honestly say that I had never met an instructor with such a broad and deep understanding as Sensei Barry Harte. Not only does he have an impressively large amount of personal experience, he is an incredible instructor with an eye for integrity and detail within performing techniques which he effortlessly and generously passes on to his students. Under Sensei Barry Harte’s leadership the Hakudakan continues to go from strength to strength and advocates a no nonsense approach to street effective techniques. Testament to this is the amount of quality, humble and skilful martial artists that train at the Hakudakan from many walks of life. The high standards in all areas of training, combined with a wide repertoire of techniques have personally given me abilities that I never would have believed I could achieve. Above all, Sensei Barry Harte is an inspiration as he leads from the front, teaching by principle.

I’ve been attending the class for a little over a year, there’s always something new to learn or refine what you’ve previously been shown. Knowing a martial art system is a must skill set to have in this day and age (you could say unfortunately), because of the Hakudakan class, I have the confidence to not be that worried in any street situation. The Hakudakan class syllabus is layered in bite sized chunks, so the moves are easily absorbed. The higher level students have all been to other classes, but when they find this class, they stay, Sensei Barry always has something new to teach even them. Highly recommended, great Martial arts club, great atmosphere, great val
