About Our Martial Arts Academy

Our academy is a full-time martial arts school located in Croydon, South London. We teach children aged 4 to 6 and 7 to 12, and to adults from 13 and above.

Friendly Martial Arts Instructors

The instructors at our academy all remember the intimidation we felt as beginners, when walking into a new martial arts school for the first time. Because of this, we endeavour to make our lessons as relaxed and friendly as possible, whilst delivering the best martial arts teaching we can.

Led by Chief Instructor Master Paul Hawkes (5th Degree Black Belt) at our organizational headquarters in Crawley, and by Sifu Alan Paterson (3rd Degree Black Belt), Head Instructor of our Croydon school, our team of experienced instructors is fully trained to teach martial arts to both children and adults. For extra peace of mind, each one is also indemnity insured and CRB checked.

Our Academy: Comprehensive Facilities in a Convenient Location

Our full-time academy has three training rooms equipped with all the facilities required for effective martial arts training. These purpose-built rooms are clean, well-lit and spacious, ensuring that you or your child will be learning martial arts in a safe environment.

Our location within a business park ensures that we are well away from busy main roads and traffic. We are easily accessible by bus or rail, with free parking spaces available. Because of our convenient location within close proximity of the M23 and M25, our students come from all over Croydon, Bromley, London and Surrey.

International Martial Arts Seal of Approval

Kung Fu Schools is a sister organization of the International WingTjun Kungfu Association (IWKA), which has several schools around the world, and with headquarters in Hong Kong and Amsterdam. We work and train closely with IWKA founder, Grandmaster Sergio Iadarola, to ensure we deliver our martial art system in its most effective and authentic form.

Our academy has also been recognized as a “Confucius Classroom” by the Chinese Confucius Institute at London South Bank University, acknowledging us as a centre of excellence in disseminating authentic Chinese arts and culture to the world. Ours is the only martial arts organization outside of China to be honoured with this title. We have performed martial arts demonstrations around London, including at the National Portrait Gallery, and have addressed the All-China Council at the Houses of Parliament. Through the Confucius Institute, we are also able to offer Mandarin language lessons and traditional Chinese well-being seminars at our academy.
