Hi I’m Aimran Majid I am an enthusiastic and passionate Martial Artist.
I am a member of the Shaun Rawcliffe Midlands Wing Chun School of which I have been a member since 2008. I am now at Biu Tze standard trained by my Sifu Umar Choudry.
I have had the privilege to train at the Grandmaster Ip Chun’s School under his supervision who is the son of legendary Ip Man.
In addition I was an assistant instructor for over two years on a children’s street defence program named Defence Lab and attended the Head Quarters in Valencia Spain to train under the instruction of Andy Norman.
In early 2017 I embarked on the L2 instructor’s course with an A grade under the supervision and guidance of Lee Matthews, founder and owner of BMMA.
I have always been into sport, at the age of 14 I had Trials for the Warwickshire cricket team however a road traffic accident prevented me from continuing this journey any further.
Over the years I have kept fit and really enjoyed the benefits of exercise. The reason I began martial arts is because my background is working as a club promoter and for many years I witnessed physical altercations and often asked myself the question “what would I do if I found myself in a violent situation” the truth be known if I’m totally honest I did not know, this lack of knowledge inspired me into taking up martial arts, and can say it’s been an amazing journey being taught by some leading instructors within their field and by also listening to their stories and the stories of fellow students. Having this understanding certainly helps in self-esteem and the fitness side of martial arts is a big bonus because active recreational activity is a must for everyone and the two marry well together.
I am very passionate about the development of children and as an assistant instructor for two years in Self Defence I enjoyed seeing youngsters from the ages of 4-13 go through the training process and grow to become stronger characters. Its attributes like this that attracted me into wanting to teach children. As a parent myself I empathise with parents as we all worry about our children, the main concern being bullying sad fact but very true. Anti-Bullying is very important to us here at Bmma Birmingham which is why Lee Mathews and I have got the support of The Princess Diana anti-bullying award. In my classes I will make sure bullying is discussed and understood and how to not remain silent. We at British Military Martial Arts are also proud to support the National Autistic Society, Finally last but not least I am fully supported by Rush Trampoline Park where trips will be organised for all the children and parents to attend as a group which will encourage bonding and lots of fun in our martial arts family.
So please come and join our classes make new friends and be part of our Martial Arts Family.
