We run a number of classes under our ACS MAGFA brand, in addition to our ACS Ninja Tykes initiative, we also have :

  • ACS Dance Fitness

We've been running martial arts classes for children 7 years to 14 years and adults since 2008 in the Luton area and on occassion, Harpenden. These classes operated out of leisure, community centres and schools and were associated with Bob Cowan's, Dunstable based International Atemi Jujitsu, until 2013 when ACS Martial Arts was formed.

In 2014 ACS MAGFA was created as a single, ecapsulating brand providing a number of services alongside our martial arts classes such as: Boxercise, Dance Fitness and kids games clubs. We ran these from a rented studio space in Taylor St Luton.

In 2017, we left Taylor St and moved to our current location in Charles St and began offering both Mini Ninja and Ninja Birthday classes to our existing class schedules. In 2018 we run a few tentative 'Peewee Punchers' classes for 3 year olds as an experiment. That class has changed to ACS Ninja Tykes and will be running in 2020.

Our lead coach and owner David Brown will be running these classes. David began working with children when he was employed as an assitant jujitsu instructor back in 2000. He holds dan grades in 2 martial arts along with BETEC qualifications in the use of Reasonable Force, Self Defence tuition,  in addition, he also holds certification in Pressure Point, Self Protection coaching along with Boxercise UK, IBFF GroupSparring, Mini Fencing and Dodgeball.
