Martial Arts Disciplines

martial arts disciplines in doncasterAs Doncasters largest Martial Arts Club, we have a wide range of activities for you to choose from. We are not a “Jack of all Trades – Master of none” centre. Far from it. A lot of our instructors have held titles at National, European and World levels, which means that we have the experience to help you progress at whatever level you choose.

We encourage people to try out the various disciplines as a lot of them compliment each other. You may start out wanting to learn Brazilian Jui Jitsu (BJJ), but lessons in Boxing, Circuit Training or No Gi Grappling may help you further your learning in BJJ. It’s up to you, we never pressurise people, but are always on hand to help, advise and explain how each discipline can work for you. And if you are worried about the cost of taking multiple sessions – don’t – a monthly subscription with Doncaster Martial Arts Centre allows you to attend sessions for the same low monthly cost.
