Hi, we are Ben & Nichola Thatcher.

WE KNOW HOW DIFFICULT AND CONFUSING
FINDING A MARTIAL ARTS SCHOOL CAN BE.

We remember when we were children, feeling uncertainty about beginning martial arts. We wondered if we had what it took to succeed and we weren't the most athletic or confident of children - quite the opposite. Little did we know that beginning our martial arts journey would be one of the most profound experiences of our lives!

When we opened our school in 2010, we made a commitment to serving and empowering the community of Wakefield by teaching children and adults the confidence, leadership, and fitness skills that can only be achieved through martial arts.

We Share & teach The Same Values You Teach At Home.

Our programmes have a strong focus on personal development. The foundations of our morals, values and core character traits are formed in our early years. For this reason, the programmes at Kaiju Martial Arts are an essential way to enhance the growth and personal development of young students of all ages.

WHAT IS KICKBOXING

Kickboxing is the style of martial arts practiced by Kaiju Martial Arts students.
The journey from White Belt to Black Belt is one of incremental learning and skill development, that students of any age and fitness level can embark on.

FUN, EXCITEMENT & PREPARATION: STUDENTS & PARENTS LOVE MARTIAL ARTS TOURNAMENTS!

One of the most fun parts of martial arts training is the ability to test your skills by competing in a tournament. Tournaments are not only fun for competitors, but they also become a great social experience for parents as well!

From sparring to forms to team demos, these awesome competitions are not only a place where our students can test their skills, but also a place where team spirit is built, fears are overcome, and character is developed. Most importantly, they are tons of fun!
