Thank you for visiting our website. My name is John Parkinson. My school, Family Martial Arts Centres, has been successfully teaching valuable life skills and Martial Arts to children in the North West of England for over 20 years.

Family Martial Arts Centres® programmes are vigorously designed in conjunction with experts in the field of education to provide social, physical and emotional growth.

Along with my Instructors, we have established a goal to enhance the lives of children & adults so they will have the confidence to make the right choices in life. Family Martial Arts has enhanced the lives of many children, helping them to UNLOCK THEIR FULL POTENTIAL.

In all my years as a Martial Arts Teacher the key motivator to why many parents just like you call a Martial Arts school is because they need a little extra help when it comes to building their child’s level of:

Self Control
Through martial arts your child will learn to follow rules and have the discipline to follow through.

Improved Focus
Through martial arts your child will listen effectively and will “zero in” on the task at hand and be unaffected by distractions!

All types of challenges will be tackled more skillfully; your child will be free to pursue the many opportunities life has to offer, without fear!

Bully Defense
Your children will learn the skills it takes to stand-up to that bully.

Stranger Danger
Your children will learn the valuable skills of stranger danger. We take them off the couch and teach them the importance of regular exercise.

We give your children the tools to protect themselves against a bully.

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.
