McKinstry Family Martial Arts


We are a family-friendly Martial Arts school established over 10 years ago, operating from our own dedicated well-equipped premises in Ormskirk, we have numerous classes over three evenings per week and weekends.​

We teach the dynamic exciting and effective Korean style of martial arts know as Soo Bahk Do a style similar to Karate though heavily influenced by indigenous Korean and also Chinese martial arts. Our school is great for Kids, Families and Adults to train and learn great new skills in a friendly safe environment free from intimidation (though not free from hard work)!​

At McKinstry Family Martial Arts you will be learning self-defence along with other great skills and as each week of training passes you’ll get fitter, stronger, leaner more flexible and gain the energy you thought you never had.

We understand everyone has their own reasons for trying the Martial Arts for themselves or child - so why not book yourself a free trial lesson and find out if it is for you.

​Mckinstry Family Martial Arts is Officially Recognised by the International Governing Body for our style - The World Moo Duk Kwan
