I am delighted to announce the formation of the IEB (Independant Examination Board). This is the board that governs examination within our academies, from normal academy gradings to panel grades, to dance exams and judging. Also it will oversee any CIT course exams and competitions etc to make sure everything is judged in a fair, impartial way. Mr Heywood is the director of the IEB, with Mr Glasheen being principal examiner, and Miss Kinsella running the Dance. We also have room for expansion throughout the UK as we are now working with over 300 students across the country.
Mr Adam Heywood III Dan BOA BOE has been teaching martial arts for over 10 years. Working within the industry he has amassed a wealth of knowledge in self defence techniques, kickboxing, BJJ, karate and Tae Kwon Do. He is also a level 3 qualified personal trainer. He has a wealth of knowledge in many group exercise programmes so all the classes he covers are taught to an exceptionally high standard. He also won the highly regarded "Instructor of the Year Award 2010" in martial arts teaching and development.
Miss Deborah Kinsella has been teaching group exercise classes for 15 years, and has a wealth of knowledge in freestyle disco dancing and contemporary dance. Dancing from the age of 5 she has won local, national and inter competitions. Her fitness classes have a loyal student base, and dance students are already winning on the competitive circuit. She also holds many fitness and group classqualifications.
After working for many years in the industry Adam & Deborah opened their own academy under "The Heywood Academy" mid 2012 and it has gone from strength to strength.
