Welcome to
Martial Arts

To A Caring Parent

Hi, my name is Matt Rudman.

Many people walk through the doors of my school for the first time and think that martial arts is just about punching and kicking. This may surprise you, but there is so much more to it.

Our goal at Cheltenham
Martial Arts is to use martial arts as a vehicle to inspire children to be more confident and focused in their daily activities.

Below, we would like to share with you the most important benefits that children and parents get from our program. Then afterward, we will let our members do the talking and share with you exactly how our program transformed their child’s life.

The Transformation

After Just A Few Weeks Of MArtial Arts, This is What Happens...

Action-Packed Fitness and Exercise.

Action-packed games, activities, and exercises give kids a great workout from head to toe.

They get stronger, healthier and more fit within just a couple weeks. These fun exercises also help maintain a healthy weight!

The best part? The fitness is disguised as FUN! All your child will know is that they’re having a blast. But you and I know they’re also getting the exercise they need.

Self-Defence From Strangers, Bullies, and More.

Make no mistake about it! While our classes are tons of fun, we also cover the "serious" stuff too.

We teach kids about handling strangers... bullies... and more.

However, the first thing we teach is diplomacy. We give your child the tools they need to "talk it out" first. Violence is ALWAYS a last resort!

Powerful Character Development Breeds Discipline, Focus, and Respect.

For thousands of years, martial arts has been one of the best kept secrets for giving kids the skills they need for success in life.

Through inspiring stories and talks, as well as the process of learning the techniques, kids develop amazing traits, like:

Respect, discipline, focus and goal setting.

I hope your child will never have to use their self-defence skills. But I guarantee these other skills will come in handy EVERY day for the rest of their life.

Fun, Fun, Fun!!!

While kids work hard and train hard in our classes...

They also smile and laugh a LOT, too!

After all, these are kids we’re dealing with here! Our classes are a great place for kids to socialise, make friends, get support and have a blast.

A very friendly academy. Myself and my 2 children all train here. They have age specific classes, so that the children are taught with this in mind. Not only does it help keep us fit, but also promotes confidence and there is a real sense of community spirit about the place. All the instructors are knowledgable and very approachable. I would highly recommend this academy for either adults or children.

Since joining in November 2017 I have found an enthusiasm for fitness I have NEVER had before! I thoroughly enjoy 4 kickboxing classes a week, have made loads of new friends and have trimmed my waistline in the process. There is always a warm welcome and a tonne of classes throughout the week to enjoy from a variety of instructors. I could not recommend more highly!

The last time I tried to be active I sat in the gym, on the ground, watched the people around me for an hour, and went home. I started the Fitness Kickboxing about a month ago and never thought that I could ever be as excited and motivated to go to a workout. It's super intense but I finally feel like I'm working as hard as I can and I feel incredible afterwards. The staff are just the most amazing people on earth. They're so sweet, friendly, fun, dedicated, supportive and patient. They give clear instructions, tell you how to improve and push you to your limit. Before I started I was scared I wouldn't be good enough but the support is just fantastic! It doesn't matter what fitness level you have. Everyone is welcome and can train according to their own pace. The instructors will always try and get the best out of you and there's always a friendly face when you walk in. It's finally not an effort for me to get up and go to have a workout anymore. I'm always looking forward to it, I've never been more motivated, thank you guys!

Do you want to become the best version of yourself? If you answer is yes, I recommend this academy. I have been training for less than a year but I feel like a completely different person. I am much more willing to work, the instructors have told me to be determined and resilient. Everything is kept fun and everybody is friendly. Yet it is still a very serious academy which will teach you not only martial arts, it will also teach you about yourself and your limit. I couldn’t be more grateful to all the instructors at Cheltenham martial arts, and I can’t wait to see new faces around!

Both myself and my son are members. He loves the martial arts classes and has improved his confidence and listening skills. I have improved my strength and fitness whilst having fun and making new friends with the Fitness kickboxing. Such a welcoming place, the staff are great. Would definitely recommend it to anyone.
