Working With

A Note From Our Head Instructor

Anton St'James

Dear Parent,

My name is Anton St'James, I'm the head instructor and owner of Masters Academy along with Tom. I want to take a moment to welcome you to our website and to say THANK YOU for considering Martial Arts for your child.

I've been teaching children's martial arts classes for over 30 years. As you can imagine in that time, I've seen every kind of personality you can think of in a child.

One thing learnt over the years is every child is different.  They each have special gifts and challenges to overcome.  I've seen Martial Arts classes help every single one of them grow into happy, healthy, confident kids. We've seen;

Children with ADD, ADHD, and other learning difficulties developing focus, self discipline, and a positive outlet for their energy.

Overweight children improve their fitness, lose a few pounds and more importantly keep it off.

Shy children burst out of their shells and become more interactive, social, and positive.

Children that have been bullied develop self confidence and to stand up to their attackers.

Enrolling your child at our Academy could be the priceless gift that starts your child off properly on their road to a happy, successful, fulfilling life.

On this page you'll discover how our classes can help your child and the methods we use to achieve our results.

Take a look at what we do, see if it our philosophy on the Martial Arts mat lines up with your goals as a parent. If you decide our classes would be beneficial in your child's life then take the next step and learn more about our trial offer.

Again, THANK YOU for considering Martial Arts - it was literally the BEST thing that ever happened to me when I was young, and I think it's possible that it could be the same for your child.

Thousands of parents have trusted us to help their children become Happy, Healthy, Confident Leaders

We’ve been teaching high quality children’s martial arts class in Plymouth since 1999 and have helped 1000’s of children improve their fitness, develop valuable life skills, and learn effective self defence skills.

As a parent I'm sure you are aware that children of different ages have very different learning needs.

All are classes are exciting, fun and educational and we are the only martial arts school in Plymouth to offer classes for three different age groups.

Mini Masters (4 - 6 yrs)

This Programme is designed specifically for children aged 4 to 6 years old. The classes focus on developing core life skills through martial arts in a fun, motivating and energised way.

In addition your child will also learn important skills such as stranger awareness, anti-bullying strategies and will help develop their fitness.

Juniors (7 - 9 yrs)

This is martial arts programme is for children aged 7 to 10 years old. The programme focuses on progressively developing core martial arts skills through fun and motivating training. 

In addition to learning martial arts skills your child will learn basic self defence, life skills, and character education.

Cadets (10 - 14 yrs)

The cadet programme caters for the slightly older child. Classes cover the same technical material as our Junior Programme but are taught in a more appropriate way for this slightly older age group.

This programme is designed to prepare the older child for our Teen and Adult Programme once they reach the age of 14 years. However, there is still a strong emphasis on character education and life skills development through fun, enjoyable classes.

See Naomi's Story

Naomi has been training with us since she was 5. In this short interview she talks about her experience training martial arts and why she believes every child should train martial arts.

But what makes our classes different? We are one of the few martial arts schools in the country which attaches education, and child development programmes to its martial arts curriculum.

When you enrol your child at Masters Academy you'll give your child an opportunity to develop the skills required to build a successful, fulfilling life. We do this by focusing on three key areas:

Physical Development.

Martial Arts training is well known for being a great form of physical fitness and an excellent way to stay in shape. According the the Harvard Medical Journal martial arts training can burn over 800 cal an hour!

One of the core elements in all our children's classes is to help them learn about their bodies, a healthy diet, the importance of staying active, and how to develop flexibility.

It is well documented the more healthy a person is in childhood the more healthy they will be as an adult.

Character Development.

It's often said that martial arts training will develop positive character traits such as confidence, focus, and self discipline.

We aim to ensure this by having a dedicated life skills development programme that's available to all our junior students and is a requirement to grade.

On top of this we also teach children about important topics such as stranger danger, dealing with negative peer pressure, and fire safety.

Masters Academy is the only martial arts academy in Plymouth that is a registered learning provider for the Children's University. We are also part of ASDA's Sporting Chance, Change For Life, and The Plymouth Safe Sound Charter.

Effective Self Defence.

One of the most obvious benefits of martial arts training is learning self defence skills. However, the physical skills are only about 10% of self defence.

What's more important is teaching children about situational awareness, when it's acceptable to defend themselves, how to deescalate difficult situations, and when they should remove themselves entirely from a situation.

As a member of our academy your child will learn when it's effective self defence techniques we've taught to thousands of people including the military, law enforcement, and NHS staff.

See Louis's Story

Louis's has been training since he was 4. In this short interview he shares his martial arts journey, how it's taken him around the world, and changed his life.

But what makes our Academy different? We aim to provide you and your family with the best quality training in a safe friendly environments.

Unfortunately, the martial arts industry is largely unregulated and there are a lot of unethical instructors exploiting unwitting family.

We find that truly unacceptable and hold ourselves to a higher standard. Our goal is to create a professional training academy with transparent policies that puts you and your family first.

Professional Instructors.

Our instructors are experts in their fields and they are dedicated to the success of their students.

Many of them are full time instructors so they live and breath martial arts and they are always looking at new ways to improve their teaching skills. As a bare minimum our instructors have;

  • Enhanced DBS checks,
  • Emergency first aid training,
  • Fire safety training,
  • Completed a comprehensive instructor training programme,
  • Public Liability Insurance

They have also attended course such as "Child Abuse Awareness" and "Dealing with ADHD and ADD"

You can be sure when you attend a class run by a Masters Academy instructor you are getting the highest quality instruction available.

Full Time Facility.

Masters Academy is one of the largest full time martial arts academies in the south west. It is specifically designed with teaching martial arts in mind so has all the necessary safety features in place.

Let me give you three examples. (1.) Our quadruple density mats are covered by a single sheet of vinyl with no gaps or spaces for fingers and toes to get stuck in. (2) Any exposed corners are covered with padding incase someone accidentally runs into them. (3) We have all the necessary training equipment available to help you get the most out of training.

Our Academy is also equipped with all the training facilities needed to teach quality martial arts classes. It also features male and female changing facilities including showers, a comfortable waiting area with coffee machine, and a pro shop.

We also great take care in ensuring our academy is clean and tidy, unlike many schools. At a bare minimum our academy is cleaned once per day, often it's cleaned much more than that.

Professional Standards.

One of the sad truths about the martial arts industry is the lack of professional standards.

As a bare minimum all our instructor undergo enhanced DBS checks, emergency first aid training, fire safety training, they have insurance, and they're required to go through our comprehensive instructor training programme, that includes hundreds of hours assisting before they ever get to teach a class.

The simple truth is, if an instructor doesn't have these basic requirements in place they should not be teaching.

It doesn't stop there. We have established evacuation protocols, the academy is continually risk assessed, and the facility is regularly visited by fire safety inspectors.

We have made it our goal to raise the standards of martial arts instruction in the UK.

Class Reviews From Real Parents and Members

We Think It's Great, But What About Regular Parents and Members?

It is a fantastic club with a great family atmosphere. The instructors are brilliant with the students and it is an enjoyable experience

Glynn B.

Maisie has been training at Masters Academy since 2009. We started Maisie to develop her commitment, fitness, and self defence. She wanted to start training to work hard and make sure her Dad does not get a higher grade than her (I started training just after she did). Maisie has shown us that she is committed to pushing herself to achieve results, and has worked hard to reach her purple belt.

Pete F.

Lovely environment, and I’ve seen a real change in my sons behaviour since he’s been coming to Masters Academy. He’s a happy young man again and I know it’s this place bringing the best out in him … Many thanks

Laura S.

As a parent I find the teaching and support the instructors show to my child is invaluable. All of the instructors are fantastic role models, showing what can be achieved through the cultivation and application of respect, discipline, perseverence and all round good attitude.
