About Us

Family Martial Arts Centres currently have nine full-time schools and multiple part-time satellite locations all around the Northwest. Each full-time centre is over 4000 sq feet, fully equipped with a proper martial arts safety floor, lounge area, pro-shop retail area, changing rooms and Certified Instructor Training class rooms.

All centres are run by fully qualified Chief Instructors, Assistant Instructors and Programme Directors. Family Martial Arts Centres are the ONLY Tang Soo Do Group to employ fully qualified full time instructors who have successfully completed the Certified Instructor Training Programme. Every year, instructors undertake continuous teacher training, to ensure that our members receive the best possible tuition & mentoring experience.

We have a child protection policy and our instructors are DBS checked and we are fully insured. We are also recognised by the Department of Education – Learning and Skills Council as a professional learning provider.

We subscribe to the Safe guarding in Martial Arts Code – Our Safeguarding policies can be found here https://www.moodokwan.co.uk/safe-guarding.   Or see the https://www.safeguardingcode.com/ for more details

In the past 12 months over 1000 adults, children and families have joined our programmes.

We are helping children from as young as 3 years old to adults in their 60’s and beyond, to learn martial art skills along with life and leadership skills by offering them a truly professional experience and fantastic training programme.

We have programmes to help increase confidence, anti bullying, gang avoidance, stranger danger, weight loss and fitness, right through to becoming a Professional Martial Arts Instructor.

We look forward to meeting with you very soon!

What Our Students Say

My son came to the classes 9 months ago and has achieved so much in his confidence and discipline. I personally think this is a professional, organised class. With mixed classes of children and adults which help with the childrens confidence. It has a very friendly atmosphere with extra activities out of class times.
