Newton Abbot Martial Arts is a proud member of P.U.M.A. (Professional Unification of Martial Arts). This martial arts school is one of the oldest in Devon first started by the late great Master Johnny Black VIII Degree, when he introduced Taekwon-Do to Devon in 1976.
Newton Abbot Martial Arts has something for everyone (all abilities and ages), whether that be Taekwon-Do, Kickboxing or Little PUMAs for the 4-7 year olds.
Martial arts has been proven to improve confidence, motor function as well as having an amazing effect on practitioners’ moral code and conduct.
All of these classes are Instructed by Mr Ed Colman-Roberts, III Degree Black Belt in Taekwon-Do and 1st Dan Black Belt in Kickboxing. Ed has been training since the age of four and now is a member of the ITF and PUMA England team, so has experienced training at every level of participation/involvement. He is also a graduate of the University of Bath, where he studied sport and social science, and specialised in sport pedagogy (the study of learning and teaching within sport).
Ed has recently qualified as a Level 3 Personal trainer as well as a Level 3 Sports masseur and is looking forward to offering these service along with his martial arts lessons.
