You do not need to have a good level of fitness to start training with us; we tailor our training around the individual.

And is attended by martial arts students not only from Witham, but from all over Essex to learn martial arts at one of the best equipped and most professional martial arts academies in the United Kingdom.

Our team of highly qualified instructors are regarded as some of the best in the business and we offer classes in the following martial arts: Jun Fan Gung Fu, Jeet Kune Do Concepts (JKD Concepts), Chinese Martial Arts, Wing Chun, Filipino Martial Arts (Kali), Silat, Muay Thai (Thai Boxing), Kickboxing, Judo, Sombo (Russian Wresting), Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ), Mixed Martial Arts (MMA), Yoga and Tai Chi.
