Welcome to our website. Based in the scenic Highlands of Scotland, we are a friendly, family-orientated and well established organisation who take pride in being one of the finest Martial Arts organisations in the world with schools at Inverness, Dingwall, Tain and Strathpeffer. Our Lil' Dragons programme for young children (4 - 7 year-olds) and Kempo programme for children (8 years-old upwards), teens and adults are motivational, educational and inspirational with students receiving safe, effective and practical Self-Defence tuition whilst reaching goals they never dreamt that they could achieve!

Many adults feel they are too old or too unfit to start Martial Arts training. This couldn't be further from the truth! Our adult Kempo classes are a fantastic way to get fit, stay in shape and have fun while learning vital Self-Defence skills.

In addition, many of our adult students have attributed success in their personal careers to the self-discipline and focus gained through their training.

Our fun, exciting, yet structured and disciplined Lil' Dragons and Kempo classes, teach children how to focus their attention which improves their ability to learn. Learning builds a real sense of accomplishment in children and with each new accomplishment a child's self-confidence will grow. Once we begin to build a child's confidence we are then able to instil the values of respect, courtesy, honesty and integrity that are the foundations of the Martial Arts dating back thousands of years.
