5 Facts About Us...


1 . We never compromise on the ethics and principles of Martial Arts. Whether you are training as an individual or with family members, you can be assured that you will be benefiting from over 43 years of teaching experience. This is one of the reasons we always offer free trial classes, to allow you to experience for yourself the ways in which the values and benefits of Martial Arts will improve your life. Coupled with our fantastic curriculum, which will help you progress from beginner to advanced student, we are confident in our ability to help you reach the goal of Black Belt.

2 . Here at John Turners Black Belt Academy we understand the difficulty in choosing a Martial Arts school. When you first visit our Academy, we give you the choice of having a private one-on-one introductory class (with a male or female instructor) or taking part in a beginner class, completely free of charge.

5 Essential Things To Ask Before Taking Up Martial Arts

1. What are my or my child’s goals and objectives for starting martial arts?
To get tough? To defeat a bully? Maybe to gain confidence?
Correct Martial Arts will teach self discipline, which leads to increased self confidence, leading to better self control, therefore leading to self achievement- resulting in hitting goals!

2. What commitment am I willing to make?
Martial Arts is a dedicated and rewarding way of life. Are you willing to commit to regular training, to set goals and believe in yourself? Can you agree to the Code of Conduct of a Martial Arts school that has values and good moral grounding. There are many Martial Arts schools and clubs in operation today, but not all have the same values, often omitting any moral or philosophical basis underlying their instruction. No responsible Martial Arts teacher should train students without making certain that the students have the proper moral grounding to know when it is appropriate to use the training they are receiving.

Mr and Mrs Parkinson, for their children George and Grace...

George and Grace have developed so much in the short time they have been with your Academy which was evident today. Before starting with JTBBA, once the nerves kicked in, Grace would not have walked back onto the mat let alone carry on with the demonstration. Yet today we saw a much braver little girl with a few reassuring words from Mrs Rowson and Mrs Turner. We are so pleased we brought them to John Turners Black Belt Academy. Thank you again.

My son Ryan is thoroughly enjoying himself and would attend every session if he could! On a personal note, I have attended many Martial Arts clubs over the years, and I can honestly say that John Turners Black Belt Academy has a fantastic atmosphere and all the instructors are full of enthusiasm. This, I believe, is what makes this Academy perfect for all ages & abilities

Mr and Mrs Hurst, for sons Ben and Matthew...

Both myself and my husband are impressed with the service we all receive from walking through the door to departing. To be greeted by any member of staff and be acknowledged on a first name basis, be it us or our boys, means a lot. Master Turner is a true wonder and a pleasure to watch, and his dedication and training can be seen throughout the belts…

Kerry Shipley, for her daughter Taylor...

Joining John Turners Black Belt Academy is one of the best decisions we have made as a family it has most certainly improved Taylor’s confidence and supported me to manage my anxieties. Being able to train together is definitely just one of the many benefits of training at JTBBA as we are both on the mats together. The environment and atmosphere that is created within the academy is welcoming and encouraging. No matter what age or level you are at the instruction team work hard and are dedicated to bringing out the best in you.

Darren and Olivia Bradley


I joined John Turners Black Belt Academy along with my 7 year old daughter to build her confidence and self-esteem. I can honestly say that it was the best decision I have made and haven’t looked back. On our first session, I was promised that I would see a difference in Olivia within one month of training and can honestly say that they kept their word. She is so much more confident in everything she does.

I cannot give enough credit to the Instruction Team. They are all fantastic role models and just generally nice people who get the best out of all students. We have always felt very welcome and part of the team since day one. JTBBA is fantastic at motivating and always encouraging, well mannered, respectful and well rounded individuals. I cannot recommend them enough. If you are looking for something fun for the family to enjoy together or as an individual to grow, learn self defence and positive life skills, this is the place to be!

Dr Saxena for his daughter Nina

I have been accompanying my daughter at the Academy for nearly 5 years now. I have always been impressed by the organised and orderly management. There is an amazing family atmosphere, something that is very unusual in the commercialised environment today.

My wife and I have been most impressed with Master Turner. I have seen the Academy go from strength to strength under his leadership – in particular how he has trained the next generation of teachers. Hearing him speak at the Graduation ceremonies is always a pleasure. His message has always been consistent – it is about discipline, persistence, striving for excellence and mutual respect. These are values we could emulate as a society at large. I have often felt that were Master Turner to ever look for an alternate career, motivational speaking would be one to turn to!
