Our Philosophy

Confidence. Discipline. Strength.

At Shirley SKC our aim is to bring high quality, accessible and affordable self defence to Shirley and the surrounding area. We use a unique approach, combining traditional and innovative martial arts methods and techniques.

We believe that in order to excel at anything in life, you should possess solid values and a strong character that develop the dedication needed to achieve your goals. Our exceptional team of instructors are here to inspire you to be your very best. Joining us will give you the all-important inner strength to navigate our complex world with confidence and drive.
Founded in 2023, our instructors have a wide range of experience and expertise, and are here to train you through every step of the learning process. Whether you’re joining us as a beginner or a black belt, there’s always more room to perfect your form. 

All of our instructors are fully DBS checked. They hold the required JKA licences/affiliation and insurances as well as first aid and safeguarding training. The safety of our students is paramount.

Our Goals

At Shirley SKC we work hard to promote grass roots martial arts and self defence participation for people of all backgrounds, ages and societies.

We work hard to significantly improve physical and mental well being, as well as providing a source of self-empowerment, self-discipline and social empowerment to develop a well-balanced mind and body and cultivate great human character.

Principles of Self Defence

No matter how experienced you are, there’s always more room to perfect your form and master the art of self defence. We will help you grasp the techniques from a deeper, more disciplined perspective building on physical and mental confidence.

Focused on helping you to improve your form, inner strength and confidence.

This learning process happens at your own pace in a friendly and fun atmosphere.
