Welcome to Manchester Martial Arts Centre

Hello and welcome to the website of Manchester Martial Arts Centre – your one-stop-shop for background information on every popular style of martial art taught locally in Manchester – in the city centre and further afield – throughout the Greater Manchester area.

In addition to introducing various popular styles of martial art, this portal rounds up all the local clubs where you can learn and practice your chosen art with the support of likeminded enthusiasts – including experts and beginners alike – within a range of safe & supportive training environments throughout Manchester.

If you want a first-class martial arts experience in Manchester, I wholeheartedly recommend you join the Manchester Martial Arts Centre.


Featured Styles


What we teach

Most people who teach, haven’t really mastered their art. They’re businessmen, running clubs for money – or for reputation…

At Manchester Martial Arts Centre, you’ll have the opportunity to practice the style of your choice, provided it’s a popular style of “unique or original technical quality”. This could be anything from Western Boxing to Brazilian Capoeira. From Muay Thai (of Thailand) to Tai Chi (of China); from Taekwondo to Aikido to Jeet Kune Do – we have so much diversity to share.

In the worst case scenario, perhaps we can’t find a great local teacher in your preferred style of martial art to teach on our behalf. If this is the case, we’ll recommend some similar styles that we do teach; and if your style appears to be inkeeping with the vibe we work to nurture and you appear to be a proficient exponent of this style then and we may even invite you to become a teacher at our centre to ensure that your style is represented locally.

All our coaches have mastered the systems they teach and are usually familiar with other systems too. Our coaches really live and breathe the culture of where their style originates from – you can ask them anything about it. Every teacher at Manchester Martial Arts Centre is a true ambassador of his or her respective martial art.

The syllabus varies from class to class, as do the exercises; however, as our chief instructor oversees and adjudicates all classes from all styles we teach, we are able to ensure that the quality of technique and service remains consistent throughout the centre.

Manchester Martial Arts Centre was designed as a modern temple for the practice of peace-seeking martial art. We share love, not war – we only master the art of war to keep it at bay.


Family-friendly martial arts

We don’t train with weapons – our centre is purely for the empty-handed practice of martial arts. We don’t encourage heated competition either – the practicality of what we teach is obvious to those who understand, and our coaches are totally committed to helping you understand the logic of the system you’re practicing within a totally safe and family-friendly training environment at all times.
