Wise Warriors at the Seniors Lifestyle Expo

Wise Warriors at the Seniors Lifestyle Expo

On Saturday 23rd March 8:00am-4:00pm Hunter Valley Martial Arts Centre did FREE mini trial classes and two performance of the Wise Warriors over 50’s karate program at Morisset Showground for the Lake Macquarie Seniors Leisure Lifestyle Expo. Some of our current Wise Warriors students volunteered their time to demonstrate and to assist with the trials throughout the day. Our Wise Warriors program is registered with the NSW active and healthy team.

“The Expo was such a great experience being able to see all the amazing physical activities available for an aging population.” Says Kelie Fisher, Head Instructor at HVMAC Warners Bay. “Movement helps keep your mental health and your emotional self connected and balanced. That’s why I’m passionate about martial arts in more mature aged people. By keeping your mind body and heart active we will be able to have longer independent living, which is something I strive for as I age.”

“The Expo was a celebration of our aging population, demonstrating that as we age there are still so many opportunities for us to participate in a variety of activities and enjoy the friendship of others.” Says Sensei Lesley Talbut, Head Instructor at HVMAC Morisset. “Martial arts connects the mind, body and heart, empowering us to be the best and most powerful version of ourselves. Wise Warriors allows us to continue to experience this as we grow older, allowing us to keep challenging ourselves and maintain the sense of balance that we need to continue to lead active and healthy lifestyles into our 50s, 60s and beyond.”

The program is designed for all levels of experience, including beginners with no prior martial arts or athletic experience. Each lesson involves gentle exercise, breathing exercises, simple karate exercises that increase core strength and balance, confidence building and practical self defence.
