Welcome to The Warrior Academy! We are a Freestyle Tae Kwon Do organisation specialising in the development of values and character in young people within the community, via the medium of martial arts. We want students to come to us with the passion to learn and leave with a huge increase in confidence, self control, respect, perseverance, and leadership as well as a deeper understanding of the fundamentals of the martial arts.
Our clubs are generally split into the following age groups: 4-8 years old Young Warriors, and 9+ Years Old Seniors.
It is our goal to provide a broad education in the martial arts for each of our students. This is why we have instructors who have a background in Tae Kwon Do with lots of experience from several other arts teaching at our clubs; including boxing, thai boxing, kickboxing, Tae Kwon Do, Karate and Kung Fu. Due to the huge diversity of our program, it gives us great pride to say, with confidence; that we have developed the MOST engaging, diverse and exciting syllabus around for young people in the South West of England.
The students all begin as a white belt training once or twice per week and are graded in our freestyle Tae Kwon Do syllabus 2-4 times per year. The freestyle nature of the syllabus means students are tested in aspects of each of the other arts they learn with us while keeping a strong Tae Kwon Do ethos. What separates us from traditional Tae Kwon Do is that in our clubs there is less focus on patterns, katas and Korean language and more focus on realistic self defence, sparring and pad work, with patterns being introduced at higher grades. We believe as Martial Arts evolves this is the best route to become a diverse and adaptive Martial Artist.
Parents report better behaviour at home and teachers report better grades in class. We urge you to watch our promotional video and to scroll through the feedback we have received over the years from parents and teachers.
