Martial Arts Academy Tooting

Elite Martial Arts Academy is the creation of Chief Instructor, Sensei Keron who took the decision to start up his own club to bring together all the different influences of the martial arts styles he has practised under one roof! That “roof” was Tooting Leisure Centre where he had been a Senior Instructor for a Karate club for 15 years. Having reached 2nd Dan black belt in Karate as well as achieving black belts in other martial arts, he felt it was time to combine his knowledge and provide a practical syllabus for his students, selecting the most effective techniques that will equip them with the skills they need to defend themselves in the real world. This practical approach is embedded in the grading syllabus and students are tested on real-life scenarios such as knife defence as well as the basic techniques such as punching and kicking which form the foundation of our style.

When he is not teaching classes or 1:1 sessions, Sensei Keron is himself the student, continuing to learn from Martial Arts Masters. Combined with the knowledge of the Instructor Team as a whole, Elite Martial Arts Academy is able to provide a robust syllabus based on Karate but with elements of Kickboxing, Hapkido, Taekwondo, Jeet Kune Do and Boxing. This is underpinned by fitness, strength, flexibility and overall conditioning. As well as the physical benefits, students also learn discipline, focus and determination. You will be encouraged to reach your goals and for many, this will far exceed your original expectations and you will be pushed to achieve what you could never have imagined!

All of our Instructors have a wealth of experience and are CRB checked and qualified in First Aid. They have all had at least 7 years experience training in Karate and have been with Elite Martial Arts Academy since it was created and with Sensei Keron at Tooting Dojo for many years before that.

We currently offer classes for all ages and abilities on; Wednesday evenings, Friday evenings, Saturday (morning Womens only) and Sunday mornings at Tooting Leisure Centre as well as 1:1 sessions with Sensei Keron at a mutually convenient time and place. 

When you join Elite Martial Arts Academy, you join a new family where we support and encourage each other and do not tolerate (no ego and bullying policy), you  will soon be asking when you can do more classes!
