Adult System

The Adult MSMA curriculum is the most comprehensive Martial Arts system available in the area.

It is so well rounded that you will receive greater Fitness and be far more capable of defending yourself and also the classes have a great atmosphere and many students have forged lifelong friendships by doing MSMA.

As a MSMA Student you will learn Boxing, Kicks, Knees, Elbows, Self Defence Techniques, learn how to defend yourself in street scenarios, Takedowns, Throws, Joint Locks, Pressure Points, Ground Fighting, Wrestling, Weapons. Stick Fighting and more.

It’s a complete system that runs from White Belt to 5thDegree Black Belt. We have structured gradings every three months if you train hard twice a week and the average student takes 4 years to achieve their Black Belt, it is not a quick fix system.

It is the result of the founder Andy Crittenden’s 25 plus years in the Martial Arts, studying under some of the Worlds Greatest Masters. The curriculum was examined and certified by two of the UK’s leading Organisations and Heads.
