Thanks for visiting!
Welcome to our new website. The Bridgend Martial Arts Academy has been teaching the Traditional Korean Martial Art of Tang Soo Do for over 25 years and our focus is to ensure we teach and pass on the knowledge of the martial arts as our Honourable Founder taught his students. Our Organisation is headed up by Master Vivian Thomas who holds the rank of 7th Degree Master Black Belt. Master Thomas has been practicing Tang Soo Do since 1979 and has been teaching classes around the Wales and South West region since 1986 and currently teaches in the County Borough of Bridgend. With experience and support from Master Sian Hesketh (5th Dan) and Master Tom Hopkins (4th Dan), the Instructors at the Bridgend Martial Arts Academy aim to develop people of all ages, not only in punching and kicking, but as a person and as an individual so they can not only be successful in the martial arts, but successful in their life. Therefore the Instructor acts as a coach, a mentor and promotes self respect and the respect of others as a key attribute to becoming a successful martial artist within the Academy. We guarantee not only to meet your expectations, but to exceed them. Along your development journey, teaching methods will change and adapt to ensure continuous improvement is achieved, and along the way we can guarantee plenty of fun and excitement for all.
With a variety of classes to choose from, we're sure you'll be happy with our service, experience and professional approach to ensuring you learn and develop at a comfortable but challenging pace. Look around our website and if you have any comments or questions, please feel free to contact us.
