Martial Arts

Learning a Martial Art from a young age is a fantastic way to help children develop self confidence, discipline and have fun whilst keeping active. Our clubs are the perfect place to learn, practice and understand martial arts and self defence in a relaxed and positive environment. Classes will teach focus, morals and values – things that will stay with your child throughout their life.

We hold classes across across our leisure centres and offer a variety of Martial Arts including Karate, Ju-Jitsu, Aikido, Judo and Tang Soo Do.
