''I believe the teaching of a Martial Art is a privilege not to be abused. It should be practical and it should be sincere...''

My name is Steve Rowlands and I am a 6th Dan Black Belt in Jiu-Jitsu. As well as serving in HM forces for 18 years I ran a successful security business and have encountered violence first hand more times than I care to remember. Due to my training I have survived life threatening encounters and I am still hear to talk about them.
If you're already studying a martial art ask yourself this:
1. Can I apply this technique in a real fight against a striking opponent?
2. Is this technique energy efficient enough to be applied against a larger opponent?
3. Is this technique based on movements that are natural for my body?
4. Am I open to attack through lack of control and lines of defence duing the execution of this technique?
These are our core principles. If you cannot answer “yes” to all four questions, then you run the risk of learning a technique that could lead to your demise and serious injury in a street self-defence situation.
At Bury Martial Arts Academy, our primary mission is self defence... We teach techniques that were developed many years ago to be effective on the battlefield. These techniques have evolved and are used in military and law enforcment agencies all over the world today. We are very careful not to practice or teach any techniques that violate our core principles. Few schools, if any, share this concern...
As well as adult tuition of Combat Ju-Jitsu we also invest in the future through our younger kid's classes 'Little Dragons' (+4), 'Little Ninjas' (+7) and Junior Jujitsu (+11). Here we combine techniques of Karate, Judo, Taekwondo, Kung Fu, Kick Boxing and Ju-Jitsu to give an overall ''martial art experience''
Different methods of tuition are employed within the various classes to ensure efficient knowledge transfer... When it comes to our younger members our goal is simple - 'Bullyproof' them !...
Please click on this Facebook link and 'like' the Bury Martial Arts Academy page. It is an open page and is kept up to date. It will help raise our profile and will also open a portal for communication.
Please do not mistake us for the recently opened franchise - Family Martial Arts cash generator around the corner at the traffic lights... If you are coming from Bolton drive past and take the next left, if you are coming from the other side of Bury turn right at Blockbusters.
We DO NOT condone the methods of Martial Arts franchise businesses and the high pressure sales and crass marketing techniques which they employ... Our fees are 75% lower & we have no long term commitments most of all we teach what we say we teach. Check the "Class times" page for pricing and "My Philosophy" page for my opinion on this type of so called Franchised Martial Artists... if you're interested.
