We pride ourselves on our constant journey for success.
Over the years, our team has helped change the lives of thousands of families across Yorkshire. For some this is instilling unstoppable confidence, for others its life-changing weight-loss, and for most its a supportive community.
X Martial Arts Schools was founded in 2013 in York. Since then we have grown to a five location, 1000 member plus organisation.
So, I started training at the Malton location under Mr. Rochester and Mr. Pritchard about a year ago. Since then I have hit every personal goal I’ve set. In March we were hit with lockdown and they set up a system where we could still train at home via zoom and Facebook or catch up through youtube until we could reopen again. During that time my 6-year-old girl came out to watch and asked if she could have a go, so I stuck a pair of gloves on her and she was instantly hooked, so much so I signed her up, once classes were reopened she was straight in for a few classes then passed her 1st belt test and currently holds red belt and in such a short time her self confidence has taken a massive boost in every way, all she talks about is when her next class is. I currently hold orange and feel great. The people I train with a top bunch of lads and lasses and have also become really good friends and we all look forwards to seeing each other week in week out. In short, if you read this review and are thinking about coming, don’t think, just do. you won’t regret it. The classes are really friendly and the instructors are world-class in my book. I also have a 25-week old boy and once he hits 3 he will be coming straight into the Lil Dragons program. Keep it coming XMA, 🙂
After my 10yr old daughter had been struggling with confidence we came across X Martial Arts School and got in touch. We were told all about their positive start programme and it matched everything we wanted our daughter to get out of participating in classes. We were so impressed with the programme we enrolled our 8yr old daughter on it too. They both started in February and fell in love with it. The 1-2-1 tuition and FB live classes provided over lockdown were simply amazing and kept both my girls focused and raring to get back to classes. The change in both their attitudes has been positive and this continues to only benefit other aspects of their lives. My eldest has just started at secondary school and she feels confident, healthy, happy and I do believe that the XMA classes have definitely contributed to this as she feels so much better about herself and what she is capable of both physically and mentally.
I have been so inspired by their abilities that myself and my husband have also joined. I had 2 serious emergency back surgeries last year and have struggled with any strenuous physical activity since but I now feel ready to do something and while I’ve only been attending for 2 weeks yet I feel fully supported by the instructor who offers a different exercise if I struggle with the one set.
There is also a real community in class and when I struggled with one of the combinations the other members around me didn’t hesitate to offer advice on the best way to do it, this is instilled in every member attending and I am so glad to be part of this Martial Arts School. I cannot recommend X Martial Arts School enough.
I joined Ladies XFit in January as a way to lose some weight and find some exercise I enjoyed. The initial layout for a 6 weeks course was motivation to get my monies worth and go 3 times a week for a good kick start. I’m not a super gym bunny, have metal pins in my ankle, and was a little nervous that I may not have been able to do some of the exercises. I need not of worried as everyone was welcoming and reassuring putting you at ease. If there is anything you can’t quite do or isn’t possible you don’t feel pressured you are encouraged to do what you can. 8 months on I LOVE it. I usually do 3 classes a week. They are so varied and short bursts of routines that you keep focused and don’t lose motivation. I am now a member and have even begun belt testing. That’s something I definitely wasn’t doing when I signed up but I have the bug! I love the classes, the exercises, and the skills. All delivered by a fabulous team who work super hard as standard but have bent over backward to accommodate everyone during this current pandemic! Cannot recommend enough! Come and give it a go!
We started our Martial Arts journey 7 years ago. Over the years, I have done, some form of training, in one way or another.
we enrolled our Son 1st and before we knew it, we were training as a family. All the Instructors are very professional and are full of knowledge and encouragement and the members are all really friendly too. Going back to my personal training, over the years, I have never been in an Environment like X MARTIAL ARTS SCHOOLS. The school is always tidy and clean, well mannered, and full of respect, which is hard to find in this sort of environment (Gyms).
From Instructors – Staff and from members, it’s a very welcoming environment and a happy place to keep fit, make friends & even go on to compete in competitions, you are always supported and encouraged, in whatever training you wish to do.
After 7 years, we still enjoy Martial Arts and we are still learning new skills and developing as individuals.
I, we, can’t recommend X MARTIAL ARTS SCHOOLS enough. 🌟🌟🥋🌟🌟
