Read genuine testimonials from our adult students and parents of younger students

“My daughter has been a student at NCMA since she was 7. Ellie-may is now 11, nearly 12. Ellie-may has improved in all aspects of her life due to the classes and teaching skills of Master Smith and his instructors. They are a team of instructors that work together to benefit the children in martial arts and other areas of their lives.”

“Our son has belonged to this martial arts class for 9 years and has achieved his 3rd Dan black Belt. His training gave him the confidence to defend himself against a knife attack. He really enjoys the lessons and the fitness.”

“Vienna has been coming for 4 weeks only and has learned so much in the classes. The instructors are fantastic with the students. They work with groups and individually, helping with the students’ confidence. Vienna’s confidence is finally through. The classes are teaching discipline and are great for fitness. All round i’m very impressed.”

“My child has attended Newport City Martial Arts for 4 years, starting in Pandas, progressing to Dragons and now attends Young Leaders. The classes include life skills such as self discipline, moral values and team work. My child has benefited with increased concentration and the fitness levels gained support his other sporting interests. He has also made lots of other friends during his time at at NCMA”

“Charlie cam to NCMA aged 6, came for 3 years and then quit one belt away from Black Belt aged 9. Although me and his dad were gutted we always said we would encourage him to do things but not ‘force’ him. August 2018 aged 13 Charlie suddenly said ‘i’m ready to get that Black Belt’. We were over the moon, went back to NCMA the next week and we were greeted by Master Smith like we had never been away and he was obviously delighted that Charlie was back. Master Smith inspires Charlie and always did, just took Charlie a few years to rediscover it!”

“Tom and Leon started 6 years ago in the Panda class at ages 4 and 2½. As Tom was a very quiet child we had hoped it would increase his confidence and the classes have most certainly achieved this. Master Smith and his associates are amazing at brining the best out of all the students. Our boys have achieved confidence, good self discipline and a positive attitude towards friendship. We decided on joining NCMA as the parents are encouraged to watch the lessons and I would highly recommend anyone to do the same. Tom and Leon love their classes and we hope they continue their love of martial arts throughout their lives.”
