About Us

Based in Southampton and with martial arts schools throughout the surrounding Hampshire areas, Phoenix School of Martial Arts has over 300 members and an excellent team of certified instructors. First opened by Master Marshall in 2007, under the International TaeKwonDo Alliance (Tiger Rock Martial Arts), our original TaeKwonDo School became part of the Cobra Martial Arts Association in 2008. After seeking different methods of training and gaining further knowledge in other disciplines of Martial Arts, Master Marshall founded Phoenix SMA in 2012 and the school has been expanding ever since, with self defence and TaeKwonDo training programmes all over Southampton, Fareham and Eastleigh.
