I started archery because it is a prophetic sunna and I wanted to get into a sport. I found within my first few sessions a sense of calm and relaxation everytime I went, and a steady improvement in my technique. Sara is a very experienced teacher with a thorough knowledge of archery.
Shooting under the guidance of Al Ansaar’s Banu Ismail archery club has been nothing short of oustanding. The combination of the Islamic education on the discipline, in addition to the professional guidance is an absolute pleasure to be involved in. The personal and religious growth the club has facilitated within myself is amazing.
My daughters benefitted tremendously from the jiu jitsu training provided. Not only did they learn self defence, but more importantly they learnt how to push themselves. They also became much healthier, and have remained physically active since finishing the programme.
I have attended women only archery classes. I have really enjoyed myself. The teachers are very friendly and patient. I have learnt so many skills from these classes, not only using the bow and arrow but learning skills like mindfulness and patience. I always come out feeling relaxed. Looking forward to joining them again.

In completing this 8 week introductory course on Brazilian jiu-jitsu (BJJ), students can expect an improvement in their overall fitness in addition to a familiarisation with the core movements of BJJ.
BJJ is arguably one of the most effective self defence systems developed in recent times. It is practical. It provides excellent strength, agility, and other health benefits. And, like all true arts, it trains one to defeat the ego before trying to defeat the opponent.
