MA’AT Martial Arts Manchester

Learning Martial Arts helps with Self Discipline, Bullying, Leadership as well as the added benefits of Confidence and Weight Loss.

MA’AT provides a place for you or your children to develop their body and mind whilst instilling traditional values like integrity, respect and discipline helping children and adults alike to improve at school at work, life in general.

The Temple System is a fusion of Martial Arts based on a number of styles and variations. The chief Instructor Sensei Joe Wray (7th Dan) has developed effective techniques for self defense from his life career in Martial Arts. The style makes use of Karate, Kung-fu, Boxing, Ju-Jitsu and other styles, taking effective ways from each style to help students to be aware of their surrounding.

“The Best Defense is not be there”, Sensei Joe’s ethos isn’t just about the physical aspects of self defense but also how to avoid confrontation and being aware of the signs and signals of trouble. Is walking down that dark alley by yourself worth the short cut? The short way draws blood, the long way draws sweat.

What our Students are Saying

Just a few of the comments that our students have said about MA’AT Martial Arts Manchester.

I feel privileged to train at the school with my two sons. The instructors are very good. Taking the time out to help each individual student develop at their own pace. I’ve not only seen my own confidence and fitness increase but watching my children develop into apprentice warriors with confidence which beams from their faces is priceless.
