About Us

Family Martial Arts Centres have been teaching Families, Adults & Children for over 20 Year!

Formed in 2003 by Robert Salter and John Parkinson, Family Martial Arts Centres was created to promote the many benefits of training in the martial arts to students of all ages and abilities.

We currently teach from nine full-time schools and multiple part-time satellite locations all around the Northwest. Each full-time centre is over 4,000 square 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.
