ABOUT THE COURSE

Our Martial Arts Academy is the first of its kind in London. The academy provides opportunities for you to practice martial arts, identify and develop your talent, and increase your opportunities and experiences.

Our sport diploma courses are specifically tailored to mixed martial arts and provide you with the education and skills to further develop your career opportunities and gain access to employment or higher level qualifications.

The sport diploma courses range from Level 1 to Level 3. Your initial application will be for a Level 1 sport course, however this will change when you attend an interview, depending on your predicted grades/qualifications.
