    Welcome To The Combat Academy

    A Martial Arts School like no other. A place where Community is paramount, Challenge, Learning & Growth are Guaranteed and achievement and success based on your own model of Excellence is created.

    The Combat Academy was founded in 2011 by Former Professional, British, European & World Kickboxing Champion Mick Crossland.

    As a young man Mick found acceptance, self worth & confidence from his Martial Arts Training & Achievements. After a ten year career as a Youth & Community Worker which ran alongside his Professional Kickboxing Career he made the switch to creating The Combat Academy in the hopes of making a difference to the lives of others in the same way Martial Arts had made the difference in his.

    Teaching Values of Respect, Discipline & Community!

    Since its inception, The Combat Academy has gone from strength to strength developing champions not only in the sport of kickboxing but also in life through their exemplary work ethic, conduct and values.

    The Combat Academy has grown into a large welcoming and inclusive community of valued individuals where support, acceptance and sharing provide purpose and meaning for everyone.

    Our Mission!

    Our staff team are a home grown collective of dedicated, positive, passionate and successful individuals who believe in and have benefitted from the life changing power of Martial Arts.

    It is our mission to share the benefits of quality Martial Arts tuition as far and wide as possible so that everyone may enjoy the personal, social and emotional growth that can occur through the learning and challenge that Martial Arts provides. It is our belief that Martial Arts is not only a tool utilised for the development of physical abilities and mental fortitude. Much more than this; we believe that commitment to the Martial Arts journey can help an individual build confidence, improve communication skills and develop social and emotional resilience while gaining achievement and acceptance.
