Here at inspired we follow five key points that extend to all areas of what we do these are confidence, respect, discipline focus and success.

Our aim with these points is that we will be able to help our students not just to progress in Martial Arts but in all areas of life. With the confidence to be themselves and pursue their personal goals no matter what they might be, our students are able to develop the discipline and focus to achieve their success.

In our club students will be able to progress and learn in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere where they feel safe and free to learn without the fear of embarrassment or being judged, as we strive to fight against bullying, upholding the standard that everyone in Inspired is a friendly and positive force to everyone around them.

This all comes together in our goal to offer each student everything they require to be a great martial artist plus the life skills to be a strong minded and confident individual.

We accept and teach all abilities and standards. Everyone is welcome at Inspired, to us everyone is equal and we will help all students gain confidence, self-belief, self-respect and a sense of achievement.


Martial arts are an ancient method of training your mind, body and spirit to act as one. Martial arts practitioners strive for harmony, but also learn effective and often devastating self-defence techniques. Children who get involved in martial arts reap many benefits in all areas of life. Most martial arts originated in Asia and include karate, kung fu, jiu jitsu, aikido, tae kwon do, judo and muay thai.

Inspired Martial Arts was started by Jamie Johannes in 2011. The first class started at Eye Community Centre on Monday evenings from 5pm till 6pm. The class began with two students and steadily grew from there. Now Inspired Martial Arts has numerous classes over many locations as well as having after-school clubs in several schools. It is continually growing with the support of all the instructors.

Since the club started there is now a wide network of instructors and students across the country.
