The family atmosphere at the Academy allows intense loyalty and dedication amongst students and parents alike. We also have a wonderful sharing ethic within the club and find that many students are keen to introduce friends and acquaintances to us, which helps enhance the family framework.

 Background & Philosophy

When we first started teaching martial arts around 20 years ago we did the usual hired church halls but we always dreamt of having our own full time centre. In 2012 that dream became a reality and we moved to our full time centre in Hanham. For 5 weeks we worked, taught classes at the church halls and then renovated the unit we had signed the lease on. We worked long hours and with the help and encouragement from our students and family the academy was born. We opened the doors on 4th April 2012 and still continue to improve the academy to give our members the best experience possible.

The academy is our first and second home and we love the fact that our members are like family and when new members come through the doors they feel it too.
