Multi Skilled Martial Arts
Multi Skilled Martial Arts (MSMA) was founded in 2007 by Andy Crittenden, Owner & Master Instructor of Andy Crittenden’s Martial Arts Centre however its teaching and roots go back alot further.
Multi Skilled Martial Arts (MSMA) is the most complete Martial Arts system in the area with 3 separate curriculum’s designed specifically for that age range’s needs and capabilities.
For information on our Little Dragons (5-6 year olds) & our Children’s (7-12 year olds) programs please check those pages on the Arts & Times section.
The Adult MSMA curriculum is the most comprehensive Martial Arts system available in the area.
It is so well rounded that you will receive greater Fitness and be far more capable of defending yourself and also the classes have a great atmosphere and many students have forged lifelong friendships by doing MSMA.
As a MSMA Student you will learn Boxing, Kicks, Knees, Elbows, Self Defence Techniques, learn how to defend yourself in street scenarios, Takedowns, Throws, Joint Locks, Pressure Points, Ground Fighting, Wrestling, Weapons. Stick Fighting and more.
It’s a complete system that runs from White Belt to 5th Degree Black Belt. We have structured gradings every three months if you train hard twice a week and the average student takes 4 years to achieve their Black Belt, it is not a quick fix system.
It is the result of the founder Andy Crittenden’s 25 plus years in the Martial Arts, studying under some of the Worlds Greatest Masters. The curriculum was examined and certified by two of the UK’s leading Organisations and Heads.
