32 Western Road, , Bexhill-On-Sea, East Sussex, TN40 1DY.
We run martial arts classes in Bexhill from ages 5 and upwards and for all levels of fitness, capability and training needs. Our classes include separate sessions for Kids, Juniors and Adults as well as Family classes where parents and kids can train together.
Here at our martial arts club in Bexhill we train in the comprehensive style of Kuk Sool Won™, a traditional Korean martial arts system. Within our classes we look at many aspects of martial arts training including: Kicking, Striking, Joint-Locking Techniques, Sparring, Weapons, Moving Forms, Escape techniques, body conditioning, flexibility and more.
With our 'Little Ninjas' Kids training programme in Bexhill we focus on improving confidence, co-ordination and balance as well as learning martial arts. We also make sure we have loads and loads of fun! Your little one will learn basic kicking, striking, blocking and self defence techniques as well as naturally improve their social skills, make new friends and use up all that excess energy! We aim to keep our Little Ninja classes small so that every student gets adequate attention, once the student is ready they are invited to move up to the Juniors programme.
As we run multiple Ninja martial arts classes each week we can normally accommodate new kids wanting to have a FREE trial lesson so just book up online. Get in touch if you have any specific questions for us about the classes or our martial art.
Our Junior martial arts classes are ideal for ages 8 - 12 and will focus on developing control, self defence, awareness and fitness all within an encouraging and welcoming environment. On top of this, the classes encourage students to grow into confident, respectable and self-driven adults which will help them for the rest of their lives. Our Juniors will begin to learn a martial arts system that will grow with them and be there for them all the way into adulthood.
These classes are some of our most popular and we also run family sessions on Saturdays that allow parents to train with their children so experiences can be shared and enjoyed.
Our Adult training classes are a mixture of self defence training, fitness, body conditioning, flexibility training and more. Designed to provide our members with a full body workout while learning the key elements of self defence.
In our Adults class you will learn kicking/striking, joint-locking techniques, sparring, escape techniques, weapons (including nunchuks, staff and sword) as well as improve your general strength and fitness all within an encouraging and welcoming environment.
The Adult Bexhill classes are suitable for those aged 13+ with no upper age limit, we accommodate a range of abilities, fitness levels and reasons to want to train. Just follow the find out more button to book your FREE trial lesson.
Many of our instructors have families that train with us and these family classes are fast becoming our most popular sessions. Many parents have expressed over the years how they would love to train in something like a martial art but can't because they have kids.
We looked to solve that challenge by running martial arts classes where parents and kids can all train together, we always make sure that adults and juniors get the right coaching level within the joint class.
These classes are suitable for ages 7 and upwards, students are welcome to train whether they come on their own or with a family member.
In our Bexhill martial arts classes you will be able to focus on your fitness whilst also improving your flexibility, coordination and self defence skills all at the same time as our classes combine elements of cardio, HIT and body conditioning with self defence training that keeps reflexes sharp and the mind aware. There's something here for everyone to enjoy no matter what your personal goal may be!
We often take enquiries with new students saying they will get fit before joining so they don't start classes out of shape. We say the same thing: Join us now and we will help you get into the shape you desire whilst having the benefit of learning martial arts at the same time.
We are very proud to have been able to work with some amazing students over the years some of whom have joined us as very nervous, shy individuals. At the Bexhill club we pride ourselves on building strong, independent, students who are able to grow beyond themselves and develop into confident, independent martial artists.
We always welcome the younger students who may be a little unsure of things or new experiences and are happy to work with them and their parents to give a great martial arts experience. Adults and Juniors this applies to you as well, come down and see what the club has to offer.
"My son, Jasper, joined the little ninjas program at age 4 and has now progressed to a Blue Belt at the age of 7. The smile on his face says it all and the instructors are fantastic with the kids classes...."
"Both of my kids have been attending class once a week for a number of years; it helps them to focus their boundless energy into something constructive, and is greatly beneficial for them in terms of discipline and concentration"
"I absolutely love the fact that my daughter Lexie found Kuk Sool Won. She became a member of the Hastings club at the age of 4 and at 13 became a 1st Degree black belt. Lexie has now joined the instructing team who are just brilliant and work with the children to bring out the best in them. Lexie found the classes a lot of fun without realising that she was learning and now she is teaching the little ones the same things that were instilled in her. She also competes in national tournaments and has won medals in all categories that she competes in. The club is like a family and we all help one another, wouldn’t go anywhere else."
"These classes have given me confidence to feel in control, not only of my body but of being able to take care of myself in an unwanted situation. Not only that but the classes are highly fulfilling within a family like environment. It becomes more than a hobby and teaches the importance of focus, the power of the mind and respect."
"This is a great place to learn martial arts, especially for those of us who are completely new to this sort of thing. I have been attending classes for just over a year now with my partner and we attend 2 or 3 classes a week and they all offer different things to enjoy. Tuesdays are generally busier and have a wide variety of abilities who attend (I was terrified by the thought of being in a class with the black belts for a long time) and it's great to try different things. Thursdays are generally a bit quieter and so it's easier to get a bit more attention from the instructors to practice your own forms and techniques. Saturdays are a new class for us and are good fun too, more of a family oriented class and so great to train with some younger people too. My teenage daughter has just started attending the classes with us as well and she thoroughly enjoys it so far. I have graded up twice since starting last year, and feel much more confident in the classes. I am becoming more flexible which is great for someone with a desk job! Having never really stuck at a sport or going to the gym since leaving high school I am really pleased to realise as I write this that I have been coming for just over a year and am more motivated now than when I started to keep attending class and levelling up as far as I can go. The instructors are so much fun and very helpful, with something different going on every session. I wouldn't have kept at it for this long without that."
"Cannot recommend highly enough. My ASD son has been attending classes for a little under a year and passed his first grading last Sunday - he is now the proud owner of a yellow belt... and a set of nunchucks!! The instructors are kind, patient and fair. They are aware of my sons additional needs and ‘quirks’ but do not pander to him - something that is really important for this mum but equally as important for my son. He is learning about respect, keeping fit and learning a skill that could keep him safe one day."
"My family and I have been training for a few years now and really enjoy it. The instructors are great and classes are fun, definitely recommend trying it out."
"I have been training here for just over 3 years and the atmosphere is very welcoming and friendly. It's a fantastic club and a great way to improve fitness and flexibility all while learning an extremely comprehensive martial art with lots of kicks, hand stikes, throws and joint locks."
"Excellent club with fantastic instructors. Great classes for kids as well as adults, highly recommend"
"I have trained with the Bexhill team for longer than I dare to remember. They are all friendly, welcoming, and dedicated to helping everyone achieve their best. Highly recommend."
"Highly recommended these classes and instructors, I have been training with the school owner for over ten years and he truly knows his art.......Perfect for fitness in a friendly, welcoming, atmosphere....."
"The instructors at this club are lovely and dedicated martial artists who passionately love and enjoy their craft. they go above and beyond to make students feel comfortable and keep the lessons fun and interesting- 100% recommend this club!"

Through careful explanation, practical application and coaching that adapts to each individual, you will gain greater command of your body as you progress in your flexibility, confidence, balance and strength.
We see many students coming into our classes who had expressed concerns prior to joining as they had no background of martial arts training. Many worried that they weren’t flexible enough, had poor stamina, were ‘too old’ etc. rest assured that is not a problem. We welcome students of all abilities, age, gender and backgrounds and if you join you will find many people in exactly the same place as you are. These classes are here for growth and progression, not judgement, everyone has to start somewhere.
