What an awesome club! Between us we’ve done Ninja skillz, little Ninjas, women’s self-defense sessions, Cardio kickbox and the MMA boot camp – and we’ve enjoyed them all. Our eldest son started doing Ninja Skillz and is now in little Ninjas. These classes have done wonders for his confidence and it’s great to see him progressing. He’s now got his first star! The coaches (Lee, Ethan, Helen and Nikki) are fantastic. They make all the kids welcome and are good at spotting when individuals need a confidence boost or help with a particular technique. I would thoroughly recommend CDA. More...

Our son has been going to CDA for about 6yrs, he has progressed well over this time. Great friendly atmosphere and the instructors are brilliant, all the children seem to really enjoy themselves. Totally recommend this club.

My son has been going to CDA for 4 years and it's brilliant for him. Lee is very patient and firm but fun; he's a great role model. As well as the fantastic progress my son has made with martial arts, the classes have improved his concentration and developed a sporting attitude. The extras such as squad training and Jedi school are also excellent and my son's Ninjas birthday party was a big hit. The club combines individual nurture, high expectations, high quality instruction and fun, and I would recommend it 100%. More...

It's a really friendly club. The adults kickboxing classes are a great place to learn and practise new techniques. The cardio kickboxing classes are a great way to burn off some energy and get fit. I love these classes. Come and join us! More...

About time I commented on Combined Defensive Arts.
My son started here around a year ago at the age of 6. What he has accomplished since is far far more than I would ever of thought.
Very friendly and passionate instructor.
Anyone thinking of getting their children into martial arts, take them here.

Won't find a more friendly atmosphere anywhere. No egos constant reassurance and always developing the instructors and students with new techniques. The special classes where they invite other world renowned martial instructors are fantastic to attend and helps you step up your game More...

Hi there!! I attended my first taster class last night and all I can say is WOW! Lee the Instructor was so nice and supportive and puts you through your paces but all at your own pace. I was provided with lots of clear direction, verbally and visually and continually making me feel st ease. I felt really rejuvenated and energetic when I left the 1 hour workout! Really feeling where I worked on the muscles...as they say...,no pain, no gain! Come and have a go men, women and children all welcome and get a free taster class!!! I'm not a fitness person but I'm really looking forward to the next session even with aching muscles.....a real community and friendly environment! Thank you � More...

My 6 year old son did the Jedi school sessions and he loved them. His certificate for becoming a Jedi is proudly stuck in pride of place on the fridge. Great fun exercise and as an intro into martial arts. More...

My 6 year old son has just graduated from Jedi School and had an amazing time, 3 really varied sessions linked to Star Wars..Master Lee and Nikki were great with the children, keeping them all engaged with fun activities linked to martial arts. There were clear boundaries set out, so that everyone knew the expectations...it was brilliant fun, my son loved it and I would highly recommend Jedi School! More...

Took the female self defence course last weekend and was so pleased I did. Gentle introduction, reassurance and then some actual real scenarios to get out of. Got some easily remembered, useful and most importantly, effective tips and tricks. Nobody wants to feel vulnerable and this course went a long way to change this - not only with the physical techniques but also the mind set and other factors to be aware of. Lee (instructor) made it fun, yet serious and 3 hours just flew by. If you're considering it, do it! if you don't think it's for you because it's run by a 'martial arts place' don't worry, it was not intimidating at all. Thank you! More...

Combined Defensive Arts is a great place to learn self defense. Relaxed atmosphere, friendly group of people. I have really enjoyed being a pupil of Lee, he's a great instructor and i look forward to what he has to teach me in the future. Would thoroughly recommend.

Combined Defensive Arts is a fantastic club. From day one incredibly friendly and welcoming and without egos. The street MMA is great for anyone looking for a real self defense class but backed by knowledgeable and experienced instructors in martial arts.
My son also attends the children's ninja skills class. He had separation anxiety which was affecting his school work but Lee and the class has helped incredibly with this. Again, from the start he loved the class and it's boosted his confidence in all aspects including school.

Both my children started at CDA around two years ago. It is very good for fitness training, discipline and they still really enjoy it. Lee and his team are friendly and good-humoured which makes the whole experience a lot of fun. Although we've now moved home, and live quite some distance from the gym, we continue to go because it's such a great set-up. I can thoroughly recommend CDA. More...

Fantastic club would definitely recommend friendly atmosphere great instruction,always learn something new every week, Lee teaches for the whole lesson and always has time to give you tips and point you in the right direction,great techniques with a focus on learning technique which would work in a real life self defence situation.

My son has been going to CDA for around 3yrs and has not only progressed far more than expected in his kickboxing but also made some great friends. Lee, (the instructor) is very friendly and passionate about martial arts,making the classes fun while the kids are training.
If you want to get your kids into martial arts or just get them a bit more active then I highly recommend taking them to CDA.

CDA is just what I was looking for in a club after a lay off from martial arts of nearly 20 years. Lee is a great instructor and makes you feel at home straight away. Everyone is very friendly and the training is very varied and interesting.

Kids classes are great too, i have also started taking my 6 year old on a Saturday morning and he loves it!

Even if you are an older guy like me thats carrying a bit more weight than you should be you'll soon see it drop off and with the help and support of excellent instructors you quickly become a member of the family. Great for kids too and its help at all levels get yourself down there and feel the benefits and its fun too!! More...

Lee is the most friendly instructor I think I have ever had. Lee is extremely capable and a very natural martial artist and a great and patient instructor. His classes have a great vibe and you feel right at home very quickly. Kick boxing classes have a great dynamic and meet the requirements of all levels. Mixed / Self defence are a constantly evolving and interesting set of skills that keeps me going back time after time. I've done a wide variety of martial arts and this club is probably my favourite of all of them. Lee is also fantastic with the kids. His junior kick boxing looks like great fun. More...
