Our Story

We are a small team of professional martial arts instructors with a passion for developing character in young people. We teach over 1000 students per year across 4 counties and are now one of the most successful, independent martial arts schools in the UK. 

When we were children we started Martial Arts for the same reasons many students do, to learn cool moves and become a black belt! As we have grown thorugh martial arts and our characters have been shaped by the Black Belt Community our lives have completely changed. It's our vision to give young people a huge headstart in life by giving them a black belt character, ultimately increasing their opportunity and happiness in life.  

There’s really nothing out there like The Warrior Academy and we hope that our introduction trial will show you that.
