"When I first moved to England from Poland I didn’t know any English, the move was difficult and a big thing. I joined Xen-Do and it became a bit of a sanctuary - they helped me with my confidence and to develop friendships. I was taught to be disciplined which was an enormous help to me. I am more confident and have learnt Self Defence which I really enjoy passing on to others."Patryk Fic
