Dylan Naylor Aged 16



Dylan was not engaging in any positive activities and was struggling with his confidence and finding education or employment. He was an ex student of the SESKU Muay Thai & Boxing Academy but left the club in 2009 after supporting the group to apply for the Youth opportunities fund to develop a new Martial Arts Centre at Northfield Community Centre. Dylan has been attending the Youth club for the last 6 months and is now supporting sessions of Martial Arts and is volunteering and supporting coaches to deliver sessions for the younger children. He has now enrolled at Skills Exchange Wakefield and is studying Level 2 plumbing course. Dylan is making a big difference to the sessions and the Academy is looking employ him to deliver sessions that enable him to complete the plumbing course and earn some income.

“The Academy has helped me through my childhood, I left a few years ago and my confidence went down, I have now started back with SESKU and my life is changing for the better. I want to make a difference to children’s lives like the Academy made a difference for me”.
