We’re campaigning to make martial arts safer.

It might surprise you to learn that there is no singular governing body in the United Kingdom for martial arts. That means no singular standard for instructors, no set guidelines for clubs to follow and no requirement for coaches to undergo any specific training.

We don’t think that’s right.

Learning To Defend Yourself Should Come As Naturally As Tying Your Shoes.

Martial arts isn’t just great fun, nor is it just about meeting people or getting fit. A core to martial arts – and the reason it was first developed – was to fight. Today we’re lucky enough to not need to use it in day to day combat – but having the ability and awareness to protect ourselves should we be attacked should be absolutely essential.

Our Student Portal Is Still Under Construction...

It's completely safe to use in the interim, but we don't yet have all of the awesome planned features live and ready to go. We're also bringing all of our instructor's in too, so the site will get busier in the coming days and weeks. Please keep checking back for the latest developments.
It's free, and always will be,.
Under Construction...
