Our martial arts clubs started in Wiltshire and Somerset in 2011. Over the last 8 years we have developed a world-class character development programme that has transformed the lives of thousands of children in our 70+ clubs around the world.
Our methodology focuses on the 3 C’s, improving Confidence, Conduct and Concentration. Our Instructors come from a varied background of Taekwondo, Boxing, Kickboxing, Muay Thai and Jiu Jitsu, bringing together an exciting syllabus that keeps students engaged and progressing for years.
We pride ourselves on our ability to bring communities together through martial arts. We exist to inspire young people to seek challenge and adventure through our martial arts classes, teaching them that they can make a global impact and lead a positive change in the world.
Owen, has been attending the WA now for only a short time and he is already changing his ways. Little things. Making his bed tidying up his toys and clothes. He is always quoting little things from class. For a 5 year old, I am over the moon how confident he has become and also how much he loves putting on his uniform ready for class. He loves it so much that he’s having the team turn up for his birthday party! I could not praise the team more for what they do for the kids.
Without doubt The Warrior Academy should win the Bath Life Awards. They are a small team of young people who work extremely hard to ensure all their students achieve and become the best they can be in all areas of their life. We moved from Bristol to Wiltshire 2 years ago and for our 11 year old son, finding The Warrior Academy was a very important part of his settling into his new home. From the beginning, he was made welcome and felt an integral part of the group by students and teachers alike.
Whilst my two children have only been coming to The Warrior Academy for the last 2 months they absolutely love it and can’t wait to get to you on a Friday evening. You’re welcoming and approachable manner leaves my children feeling safe and happy to be with you, while your underlying ethos is commendable. Not only are you giving the children the opportunity to learn a range of martial arts, you are increasing their fitness, stamina and coordination. I have observed you supporting them to develop important social skills such as turn taking, listening and communicating with others of different ages and all of this is done alongside the principles of increasing confidence, self control and respect. Keep up the enthusiasm for educating children in the way you do – it’s refreshing and a pleasure to observe.
Hi Sebastian, I just wanted to say how much your Young Warriors Club at Rode School has done for my son, Thomas. He lost a lot of confidence after being bullied and stopped enjoying school. Since attending your classes he has visibly grown in confidence and is happier about going to school. He loves the sessions and is very committed to progressing through his gradings. We can’t thank you enough for helping him to regain his confidence and find something that he really loves doing.
My son has just turned 5 years old and I think the confidence he is gaining going to warriors is brilliant. He’s learning independence which hopefully he will carry Through life. He’s also learning self-control and to focus and that if you work towards something you can achieve it. I think these are all fantastic things every child should learn and the warriors give my son a chance to progress in these life skills and have fun.
We’ve mentored over 5,000 children and discovered that every child has a breakthrough area, It’s an area of focus that, once developed to a high level results in rapid development of a child’s character. A breakthrough area is typically one of the 3 C’s; Confidence, Conduct and Concentration. Your child will typically have high levels of one, or two but rarely all three. By developing all three to a high level a child achieves, what we call, a “Black Belt Character”, which will ultimately set them up for a successful and happy life as an adult.
"I believe that the most important, but often overlooked aspect of a child's education is the development of their character. A strong character guides every decision they make growing up and ultimately sets a child up for a compelling, successful and happy life" - Sebastian Bates, Founder of The Warrior Academy
