Hi my name is Stuart Lowe, I am an ex-Royal Marine Commando, I served for over eight years In various units and roles within the Marines, travelling all over the world, during this time I worked extensively in broadening my martial arts experience.
I started training in martial arts when I was eight years old, starting with boxing then moved into kickboxing and have been training in both ever since. I started submission wrestling in my late teens and have advanced fairly quickly with it . Training in martial arts from such a young age gave me the fitness and confidence to join the Royal Marines, where I learned even more about things like team work discipline, fitness skills that are invaluable as a martial artist.
After leaving the royal marines I went on to open my own martial arts gym which is currently open six days a week and operates from a full-time location, we run an extensive variety of classes from Little Ninjas/ Soldiers classes through to adult kickboxing we also run bootcamps and circuit training classes and are looking into doing women's only boxercise classes in the new year.
I have a passion for martial arts and teaching and get a real thrill out of watching people progress and meet their goals from weight loss, increasing fitness levels or going on to compete.
Our kids classes teach focus, respect and martial discipline. We also run through stranger danger and teach them why bullying is wrong and the correct way to deal with bullys. Classes are taught through play so it's fun based but also quite technical. The kids are progressing really well and taking on board the combinations easily.
Our adults classes are great, we have a wide variety of people that come and all different ages and levels of fitness and martial arts experience. Some people come plainly for the fitness side of it to lose weight and tone up, we have one student who has lost two stone in two months which is amazing.
We are operating out of :
5 Mansion Street
Our kids class times are:-
Mon/Wed 4-7 year olds 5.30-6:30pm
Tues/Fri 7-12 year olds 5:30-6:30pm

So come along and let's get to work using martial arts to create a new you .
