Testimonial - E Swift

Mrs E Swift
    Well, where do I start ... I didn't for one minute think that when I first stepped into the dojang in the late 90's would I still be training now as a senior 4th degree black belt let alone be fortunate enough to take a once keen leisure pursuit and turn it into a hugely satisfying and fulfilling career!!!

    In all seriousness, in a world of high pressure and great expectation, VERVE has given me confidence, fitness and a new found inner belief to positively challenge each and every day.

'Being successful simply does not happen overnight!'

    I have seen the rise of VERVE and the strength of individuals involved allowing and enabling what we have today, I am keen to thank everyone who has shown loyalty and dedication as VERVE continues to prosper and I look forward to many more successful years with our VERVE taekwondo family!

    I am proud to be associated with Master Swift and his team as they demonstrate enviable professionalism, knowledge and experience all fed by their unrivalled passion for what they do!
Be part of a martial arts group that is making a real difference – be part of VERVE! .

Testimonial - C. Trevitt


 Mr C Trevitt   I started Taekwondo to spend time with my partner doing a hobby together whilst we both improved on our fitness. Within a couple of months I got the 'buzz' and with the advice and guidance from Mr Swift and his team of instructors I started to do extra training at home and within 18 months of hard work and a change of diet I lost 5 stone and was under 14 stone for the first time in 10 years!

    Joining Verve Taekwondo has literally changed my life. From being an overweight and tired 27 year old who enjoyed a takeaway (or two) who is now a fit, healthy 32 year old black belt & club instructor! I can't recommend Mr Swift and Verve Taekwondo enough.

If you want to do a Martial Art, get fit and have fun this is the place to come!!!

Testimonial - Swifts

    As a boy John was quite shy and avoided situations which drew attention to himself. Later, as a teenager, his enjoyment of taking part in sports gave him more confidence until he discovered what was to be the passion and driving force of his life.....
    As he developed his talent and love of martial arts, we watched him transform into a confident determined young man who has the ability to inspire these traits in others.
    John had a dream and found the courage to follow that dream, from his first Taekwondo club in 1998 to the inception of the Verve brand in 2006 to the opening of the Verve Martial Arts centre in 2011 and the fostering of relationships with martial arts clubs nationally and internationally.
    We know it has been tough at times, John has overcome obstacles not only through his determination and commitment but also through the support of his wife, Emma, and of his students and their families. Verve has in fact become one big family!
    We have been thrilled to see students of all ages and abilities take part and develop, encouraged and inspired by John and the Verve team.
    More challenges and exciting times to come for the club and students, we feel honoured and privileged to be part of the team!
