Warriors Martial Arts

Karate, Kickboxing, Self Defence and BJJ

Welsh Contact Karate

Contact Karate was the original name for Kickboxing. Our style was formed for Full Contact fighters, with greats like Howard ‘The Hawk’ Brown and Kash ‘The Flash’ Gill all representing the English Contact Karate Association (ECKA). The WCKA was created by Master Clifton Brown, who taught the first generation of instructors his own adaption which also included his own knowledge of boxing, traditional karate and Lau-Gar Kung fu


Our Warrior fit circuit will have you sweating and smiling as you achive and incresed level of fitness while have a great time, hitting pads and bags!

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu

BJJ is founded on the concept that a smaller, weaker person can successfully defend themselves against a bigger, stronger, heavier opponent. This is done by using technique, leverage, and most notably, taking the fight to the ground, and then applying joint locks and chokeholds to defeat the opponent.

Something for Everyone

Enjoy a great class environment!

Our instructors offer the very best of training and although they have succeeded in competitions all over the world, they take care in the needs that you have.  Dont just train with the champions, train with the CHAMPION trainers!

Don’t take our word for it – here’s what our clients say:

I started Mr Carter’s Little Dragons last year but I am now in the Juniors and it has helped me in many different ways. It has helped me make lots of new friends and I have become a lot fitter. It has helped me to be a better boy and to want to help other people more and to think of others and to be kind. I can concentrate on things a lot better than before and the more I train the better I become and I feel confident about myself. I like the classes as we train hard and have to listen but we also have lots of fun. I like the competitions and I enjoy fighting. I like points fighting and weapons’ form but I prefer continuous as training with Mr Carter and Carol and Josh’s Fight Class has helped me to learn that if I want something to go for it and not hold back and be confident in myself. I can’t wait until I’m old enough to train in Mr Carter’s BJJ classes. I think everyone should do kickboxing as it has helped me so much and I love my training.


If you’re looking to get fit, gain some skills, build confidence and make new friends then look no further… Warriors is the club for you. I joined six years ago as a gawky, awkward and shy teenager. Hesitant at first, as I had always assumed that this would be another of those “black belts showing off and making everyone else feel stupid” kind of clubs. I couldn’t have been more wrong. From day one, Mr Carter and the other students made me feel welcome and part of the club. Having shied away from P.E, my fitness was in the toilet and let’s just say, I was never the most athletic. Six years on, I’m about to go for my black belt. To anyone reading this, who thinks that they could never do it, let me tell you that you most definitely can. Come and give it a go! You have nothing to lose (except perhaps weight) and everything to gain!


This past year, he has grown so much in all areas of development physically, socially, emotionally and mentally and his confidence in himself has exploded. Warriors has also helped Charlie in School as he has learnt about respect, discipline, positive attitude and application/effort and he now understands that if he puts more in, he’ll get more back and not just in training but also in his education and this showed in his last Parents’ Evening (his best so far) as his reading, spelling and maths attainment levels are already that of a comprehensive school pupil and Charlie is a Year 4 Primary School Pupil. Charlie puts the effort into doing extra reading, spelling, writing and math activities and also extra training and he now enjoys a good and healthy balance of training hard, working hard, eating well and resting and he asks to do extra practice at home. Warriors has 100% played an integral part of Charlie’s development and his approach to his daily activities whatever they maybe.
