About Us

Our headquarters is based in Hamble, Southampton where classes are led by Mr Matt Marshall and his team of Instructors. Mr Marshall opened his original TKD club in Hamble in 2007 and shortly after, the club became a member of the Cobra Martial Arts Association in 2008. With Mr Marshall seeking additional training in other styles of martial arts, he felt the club needed to be re-branded to show that it was not just about TKD. In 2012, the Phoenix School of Martial Arts was founded. As it became more popular, Mr Marshall collaborated with his Senior Instructors and created the Self Defence Systems Programme in 2015, combining the skills and techniques from the training he had done. In 2017, Mr Marshall began teaching Brazilian Jiu Jitsu as a separate discipline, allowing members to train in 3 different styles of Martial Arts. Now in 2021, Phoenix SMA has over 300 members and is continuing to grow.
