elements of Jujitsu, Kickboxing & Kyusho-Jitsu all within a strength & conditioning frame work.

Chen Style Tai Chi - is a sequence of dynamic movements that combine soft and hard,
with fast and slow, actions in a balanced and natural way.

Ryukyu Kempo (Freestyle Karate), Kyusho Jitsu & Tuité Jitsu focus is on the combative aspect of the martial arts
and even though these arts could be called traditional, we teach them in a modern way, which simply means that the
techniques taught have a practical use against attacks that happen in the real world.  The UCAA's Ryukyu Kempo
class is a unique blend of all the arts Grandmaster Kierans has studied over the years.  Along with teaching the
combative aspect (soft & hard skills), we also focus on improving a student's fitness levels. We place a great
emphasis on Strength and Conditioning in our programme, simply because, in order to fight, you need to be Fit to
Fight .  Self Defence starts with the
Self, so our goal is to train you to be physically fit and mentally strong in order to
help you confront the adversities of life with confidence.

Chen Style Tai Chi is suitable for people of all ages and levels of physical fitness. The movements can be
performed slowly and gently for health and relaxation, or faster and more powerfully for fitness and self defence
applications.  Full details can be found on the
Tai Chi section of this website.  

If you have never trained in a martial art before then now is a good time to start.  We cater for all levels of ability so,
if you are unfit, don't worry.  

If you have trained in a martial art before or are currently a member of another organisation you are also more than
welcome to come and see what we have to offer.
