Focus Imagination

From early in life we all have a personality. Some what different to others and in other ways, we can be very similar. However we are all unique. 

Martial Arts always caught Hailey's attention. From a very young age she was fascinated and sold the instant she first laid her eyes on Martial Arts. 

A persons mindset will always differ as for Hailey, she explains how she found her focus in Martial Arts.

During her training sessions she is not satisfied with herself, if a door opens and she looks. If someone walked by and she looks or flinchs. This is her kind of focus.

If someone walks past you during a training session and you move out the way to offer them space, you have lost your focus. If someone walks past and you smile, it is the same again you've lost your focus. 

In other terms you have been distracted. On class this can lead to mistakes or poor performance.

After Hailey watched many Martial Arts movies. On class she states that she would always imagine herself in a movie and for the most part it was always from a action film or Martial Arts movie.

For example when Hailey performs a round kick. To obtain her balance and focus, she imagines scenes like the lady and the snake from The Karate Kid. If the lady lost her focus during this scene she is dead.

Watch it below

Over many years of training Hailey has mastered focused imagination. This is exactly what she does during training. This makes training some what exciting. As it does not matter where you train as your mind is totally involved and focused on yourself.

So the next time your are trying to train, or the next time you a fulfilling a task. Try focused imagination.

Take your mind away from the boring rows on class. The boring classroom scene, your mind has no limits.

Teenage Focus


Every parent deals with a teenager who throws strops and can go from being the perfect child, to a absolute chore of a teenager. For some it can totally take over lives and for others maybe not so much.

Teenagers are going through the phase of learning how to regulate their emotions. In the UK this can be quite a challenging time for parents and teenagers. As it comes at a time where we expect the most from them.

With so many exams and peer pressure, household problems. 

Q: How should a teenager actually behave?

A: There is no right answer, every teenager is unique. Every teenager shares a different lifestyle. Even if some are similar how everyone deals with it are all unique in itself.

So today Hailey shares her top 10 tips. For parents to support their teenagers. Rather than demand, stress and expect so much from them.

1. Don't take teenage strops too serious.

2. Being a parent is important, but so is communication. Even if your teenager never talks to you. Always re assure them, your ears are always open to listen.

3. Do not break your trust. If a teenager finds out you have shared their secrets, or private words. Don't expect any teenage crisis updates anytime soon.

4. Don't be negative if you are not satisfied with grades, or something he/she is pursuing. Instead you can say...I noticed you have not done your revision today, how about we try and arrange a day to do it. Do you need help with anything? Instead of why have you not revised!

5. Encourage your teenager to pursue what he/she wants to do. Even if your daughter/son wanting to be a Father/Mother really is not of your expectations. Find ways to encourage their passion and dreams, in to your expectations. To help meet with each other and share goals together.

6. Affirm their strengths, let them know how good they are in certain aspects and encourage them to try new things and be open minded, especially when it comes to learning. 

7. Build vision in to teenagers. This should always be encouraged. Children have the most amazing imagination, yet as we grow in to adults we develop fears and unless we continue education. Our minds are forever shrinking and becoming comfort in its current state of mind.

8. elaborate as parent/guardians we have years on our children of life experience. Help them visualize their passion. Tell them success stories, tell them about the gritty side of this dream. 

9. Believe in your teenager and let them know you do. Tell them why they can. Where you start in life has nothing to do with how and where you finish. 

10. Help them gain direction. This is more important than money. Everyone has their own foundation and if we find this. We find focus, purpose and live a meaningful life. Help your teenager pursue things he believes in.

This article was taken from Solihull College Website. Taking it back a few years now. Hailey was interviewed by her College on her World Title win.


GRAPHICS STUDENT KICKBOXES HER WAY TO WORLD CHAMPION
Friday, 31 January, 2014

A 22-year-old Solihull College graphic arts student has competed against hopefuls from over a hundred and twenty countries to win the current prestigious Unified World Kickboxing Champion title. Hailey Hutton, who won the title earlier this month in Italy, is now planning on inspiring other young people into sport.

Hailey was encouraged to start kickboxing by her mum back in 1998 suggesting it may help improve her confidence, and she has never looked back. Hailey was selected by Team England this year to compete further in the World Championships and so far this year, Hailey has earned a prestigious 1 Dan Blackbelt, along with competing for the country in Italy.

Speaking about her win, Hailey comments: “€œI am really proud to achieve what I have; it has helped with my confidence and keeping me driven with my studies. I will definitely compete again next year and hopefully help others into sport”€.

Hailey was inspired into not only the sport but into living a healthy lifestyle but her late uncle, who sadly passed away last year. It was dealing with this grief that helped motivate Hailey: “I was really close to my uncle and he was always telling me to keep up the kickboxing and to always try hard in what I do. I feel he would be proud with what I’ve achieved this year and I hope I can continue with the success”.

Due to the support she has received from the College for her competing and training, Hailey is also determined to continue her studies and she plans to progress to the HND Graphic Design in September after completing Access to Graphics.

Hailey’s tutor, Ziggy Tashi said she is a real inspiration to other young people: “She has always managed to successfully balance her study with her punishing training regime. A budding visual artist and a kickboxing warrior all rolled into one. Her classmates gave her such a warm welcome as she returned from her successful title fight in Italy. We all sang her the Queen’s “We are the Champions”. She was most embarrassed.”€

On Friday 29th December, Our club got together to celebrate a year of excellence. Rewarding students who have showed real character and great skill.

Unlike most clubs that are associated and run by a male Instructor. This club is unique to the Midlands and stands alone. It really is a female friendly environment through and through.

"I am so adamant in what I do."

This has allowed so many women and girls to walk through the doors and learn Kickboxing. I don't believe it is all just kicks and punches. It is about growing in character and discovering who you are.


A massive well done to my students they truly are amazing!


Work hard. Stay humle!

Who you actually are, this will bring out your higher self.
