Our Philosophy

To develop all students as individuals, both physically and mentally. To create strong-willed, confident people through open-minded, reality-based training.

Here at Universal, we believe that all people are individuals and should be treated as such. After learning the basics and building a strong understanding of the arts, we encourage students to experiment with their techniques and develop their own individual styles.

Unlike most traditional martial arts that have been teaching the masses of people to stand, punch, kick etc. exactly the same way for thousands of years, we are a modern-day Martial Arts academy that teaches cutting-edge training methods. You will still learn all the same qualities that a traditional Martial Arts academy has to offer - Self-Defence, Confidence, Respect, Fitness, Flexibility, Strength - but we combine the latest training methods to accelerate the learning process.
