Our Classes

Here at Russell Perks Martial Arts Academy we believe our wide variety of Martial Arts under one roof is what makes us unique. Our students have the opportunity to expand their learning by training in multiple disciplines or just sticking to one class!

Most of our classes have a grading structure where students can grade to achieve belts, this helps to keep up motivation in classes especially among children who always have a new grade to be working towards.

Whatever your training goals may be we have something to suit you, whether you are just looking for a way to keep fit or would like to study a specific discipline.

ESCRIMA

Escrima is a weapons based Martial Art which comes from the Philippines. It is the national sport of the Philippines and has a very long history of combat effectiveness. Its difference from other Martial Arts is that the student is taught to train with weapons from the very start, rather than starting on empty hands training (like many martial arts do). This type of training builds manual dexterity in the practitioner and also trains faster conditioned responses to various attacks.
