We are proud to be on the vanguard in safe guarding and are the very first club in our area to be awarded the prestigious Safe Guarding Code in Martial Arts Mark. We are experienced, professional and friendly instructors and have numerous classes over three evenings per week and weekends.​

It doesn't matter in whichever level of Martial Arts training you, or your family participate in. Its a fact that our professional service focuses on assisting every student, new or not-so-new in achieving their own personal goals in our Martial Arts lessons.

Physical activity, especiallly Martial Arts training greatly reduces stress, improves overall emotional wellbeing, boosts your immune system improves self-confidence and clarifies mental focus. Thereby guiding students to become the

What Others Say About Us

All of my family have classes here. My 7 year old son has been attending classes the longest, as he joined around 2 years ago now. He is the reason we approached Mr McKinstry. Mr McKinstry has helped Coby out immensely with his confidence
