Yes, our local classes have produced World champions, European champions and countless National champions but, to us, this is not as important as teaching the core values we believe in. These are as follows –

  1. To ensure all our students learn respect for each other regardless of age, race or creed.
  2. To offer the best classes taken by qualified, friendly Instructors.
  3. To enhance our students lives through the learning of Martial Arts
  4. To change our classes structure regularly to ensure our practices are always affective and fresh.
  5. Training must always be fun and exciting and relaxed, as this is when students learn better
