Offering Freestyle TaeKwonDo, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and our own Self Defence Systems Programme. Based in Hamble, Locks Heath & Bishops Waltham, Phoenix SMA is one of the largest martial arts schools in Southampton. With training sessions for children and adults alike, including separate, mixed and family classes.
There are three different styles of martial arts available to choose from:
Freestyle TaeKwonDo (TKD) – Based of the Chang Hon Style of TaeKwonDo
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ) – affiliated with Paraestra UK
Self Defence Systems (SDS) – combining several martial arts into one system.
Our headquarters is based in Hamble (in Southampton), where classes are led by Master Matt Marshall and his team of Instructors. Master Marshall opened his original TKD club in Hamble in late 2007. The club became a member of the Cobra Martial Arts Association in 2008. With Master 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, Master 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, Master Marshall began teaching Brazilian Jiu Jitsu as a separate discipline, allowing members to train in 3 different styles of Martial Arts. Now in 2020, Phoenix SMA has over 300 members and is continuing to grow.
