Hello From All Of Us To You
Firstly, thank you for visiting our website and taking the time to read up on what we are all about here at Halesowen Martial Arts Centre. I have always been involved in boxing, kickboxing and martial arts my whole life. I had ran schools part time whilst working full time, due to my love and passion in training people, just like you, to be the best they can be. In the early 90's, I had a personal tragedy and decided life was too short to just do the 'day job'. With the support of my wife, Julie and the kids, we made the centre a reality. Our goal here is all about striving to be better. Family is an important part of the centre. Julie, my wife works here, Kiyra, my daughter trains here and Reuben, my son, works and trains here. We really pride ourselves on having a strong positive family environment to encourage support to each other and push each other on when we need it. We train and welcome everyone from World Champs, to you gents and ladies who'd like to have a mini six pack for the summer (if only it was that easy : )). So whether you are looking and striving to be the next World Champ, whether you want your son or daughter to develop more confidence and be healthier or whether you want to see if you can get that 'mini' six pack for the summer....we are more than willing to welcome you into 'our family'. Come, give it a try...what have you got to lose!

So about me, when I was 6 years old, the doctors told me I'd probably never walk as I had Perthes disease and look at me now -I am a 6th Dan Black Belt and Great Britain Coach. I know what personal struggles are, I've felt them. I know how hard is it to get to where you want to be - I've lived it. But that is what makes me good at what I do. I have trained many British and World Champions. I am extremely passionate about helping anyone of any age be the very best they can be. I'll make you sweat, I'll make you train hard and I'll make you fitter but I'll also support, encourage and listen. This is why I have been succesful. I currently train kids in schools along side the school. I am CRB checked. Vice President and Co.Founder of I.C.O UK. And belong to many organisations such as I.S.K.A I.C.O, -W.A.K.O, -I.A.K.S.A - W.K.A & W.U.M.A. As well as being a full Seal Member. Call me and lets make a difference!

From the minute I was walking I think I was kicking! I love training with dad, love being part of the school and love working with the kids. I take classes for the kids and adults. I know what its like to win or loose and know how hard you have to train. But it is all worth it in the end. I currently am a member of the Adidas World Champs team and often fight for our country. I'm a 3rd Dan Black Belt and 8 times World Kickboxing Champion.
I started martial arts and boxing at a very young age. Being young and having to try and stick to something so challenging is very difficult. Now I am much older, all of that dedication has paid off. Being able to teach other people what I have learned throughout the years is great.
Seeing everyone progress and flourish brings great happiness for me, and when the boxers step in the ring or anyone steps on the mat a part of me steps up as well.
I have been doing Karate for many years. I loved having to wear a crisp, clean white karate Gi and the sound that it made with sharp punches and kicks. Traditional Shotokan karate is very important to stay true, but it as almost important to move with the times and introduce methods to blend and help carry on this growing martial arts.

Hi, I'm Julie or Jules if that's easier. I have not only lived with Jason, I have ate, breathed and slept Martial Arts, kickboxing and boxing for years. If you cant beat them join them and that's exactly what I did. I am a 5th Dan Black Belt and GB Ladies Coach. I have gained 3 x world champs, 5 x European Champs and 20 plus British Championships. I offer one to one training sessions for ladies who may feel better training with another woman. I teach the ladies only and little kickers. I will help you, support you and push you and listen to you but you will get results. Sometimes its hard to make the first step, so come along to our Tuesday and Thursday classes and meet other like minded women and see you are not alone : )

Hello, I'm Kiyra and I train and fight for the school. I love being strong and knowing I can look after myself. Its helped me and helps me in school. I am confident, strong minded and have learnt that whatever we want in life we have to work hard. My friends wonder why I am so confident but I know its down to the kick boxing. I would really encourage any girls, like me, or boys to take this up as it really does make a difference to every day life.
To me, being a coach means to help everyone that I teach to be at their best ability and to learn everything that they need to know ready for their next grade or next competition. Watching all of the students that I teach, learn and grow from each session is maybe one of the best things that I see whilst teaching.
When I’m fighting at different competitions around the UK and around Europe I have coaches sitting behind me telling me what to do while I’m fighting and thanks to my coaches I am able to win many competitions.
It means a lot for me that I am a coach to the little kickers and juniors of the club. I enjoy helping them improve the way they fight and to help them pass their grades.
I have enjoyed kickboxing myself from the age of 4 years old and I enjoy passing my experiences on to them.
I enjoy kickboxing as it helps keep me fit and I get to meet new people as well as giving me the opportunity to travel and compete around the whole of Europe and many other countries, winning titles along the way. At the age of twelve I gained my first dan black belt and I am proud to be part of a great team.
I started kickboxing at the age of 3 years old. I have gained a lot of experience from CMA and I attained my black belt when I was 11 years old. From then, I have been able to teach the little kickers class at the club. I enjoy passing on my knowledge I have been taught onto others and helping the develop their skills to be better kickboxers, and also better people.
To me, being a coach means to help other people learn new skills, and to encourage them to be the best kickboxers they can be.
