Our Mission Statement:
There is incredible power at the intersection of Martial Arts and Character Development. For thousands of years martial arts has been one of the most effective tools of self-development.
At The Warrior Academy we harness this power and pride ourselves on our ability to bring communities together through martial arts. We inspire young people to seek challenge and adventure; teaching them to challenge the status quo, transforming their mindset preparing them for an adult life filled with opportunity.
Our vision is to be one of the world’s leading character development organisations, inspiring young people to make a global impact from the lessons they have learnt through our programme.
The Warrior Academy was founded in 2011 by Head Instructor, Sebastian Bates. Sebastian’s vision for developing the character of young people stems from his own experiences within martial arts. After travelling the world, competing and studying 6 different styles of martial arts Sebastian returned to build his own Martial Arts school. Starting in a small rural village with 10 students, the Warrior Academy was born. Word quickly spread and within 7 years the Warrior Academy has grown to 40 locations and over 1000 students go through The Warrior Academy Programme each year.
“We want to enrich each child’s life so that they go on to live a brilliant and compelling life outside of the dojo. “ – Sebastian Bates
We have noticed a shift, despite huge technological advances and a modern lifestyle we are seeking to be more in touch with who we are, where we have come from, with nature and with traditional values.
“We are looking at the past for ancient solutions to solve our modern problems” – The Warrior Method
We believe there is nothing else out there like martial arts to develop a young person’s Character. Combining modern teaching methods with traditional values and a moral code we have established an excellent methodology which embraces this shift to great effect.
