Martial Arts in York

The York School of Defence study a variety of different martial arts and combative systems. Our classes range from medieval longsword and single handed sword, quarterstaff, Catch-As-Catch-Can wrestling, classical pugilism, Bartitsu and Suffrajitsu, self defence, sambo and eskrima.

We strongly believe that everyone should learn at their own pace, enjoy themselves and leave each session somewhat wiser, a little bit fitter and with a smile on their face. After all if it isn’t fun what’s the point? No experience is required to train with us, we welcome everyone.
