What people say about us

  • Great Place for serious workout. Experienced Instructor and welcoming team.

    I found this place through a friend and I paid a visit. I couldn’t be happier. Dojo looks very clean and recently renovated. There are proper, clean changing rooms with lockers, reception area with mini bar and Free parking outside if you drive ( or just 5 min from Richmond station walking).

    The Head Instructor is very friendly and highly experienced with more than 20 years of Kyokushin experience, being a Representative of the National team of his country and Multiple National and International Kyokushin Karate Champion.

    team was really friendly and very welcome. Although it was my first class in Martial Arts, I felt very comfortable and I received clear instructions from the moment I stepped in.

    I totally fell in love in the place and the team and I am a regular student now looking forward to my first grading soon.

    Whether you are a total beginner or a professional fighter, I highly recommend this place as I know you will be looked after according to your level and needs.

    What a better way to get fit and learn some real Martial Arts.

  • Not your average dojo!

    This dojo has the highest standard of fitness training by far compared to other places I have been. The method of training is very unusual and the coach is very creative in his classes. Great atmosphere and the rest of the team treat everyone like family. Perfect for people of all shapes and sizes to reach their goals alongside a very supportive team. Would highly recommend to everyone come and see for themselves!

  • You will not find a a stronger team than this !

    There is no question over the fact that this is one of the best martial arts academy’s for full contact serious training that you will find in London.

    Many students are actually coaches from other schools who come here to learn from the very best and train with one of the top teams in the U. K.

    If you are even thinking about joining a club in this area, i can personally vouch that you will not find better coaching, stronger training or a family unity than there is at EMAR
