Our Chessington venue is now only active for larger seminars & events.
If you’re local to Chessington and want to study martial arts, where have you been? We ran classes in Kung-Fu & Escrima on your doorstep for almost a decade, from 2002 until 2010. Don’t worry though, due to our expansion & success, you now have access to well-established schools all around you in Kingston-Upon-Thames, Ewell, Hinchley Wood and Guildford, plus our HQ in New Malden too.
This venue is now only used for certain seminars & events.
See our events calendar for any forthcoming training opportunities.

This venue has seen many changes & improvements over the years. Initially quite run-down and basic, between 2007 & 2009 the sports centre had a £23M redevelopment, and now boasts some really good facilities. We often use the new dance studio, which has full-length mirrors, a sprung wooden floor, air-con, and a built-in sound-system. We also use the main sports hall, which has tons of space to swing weapons around, and a very grippy floor. The centre also has outdoor training areas, plus a great bar & cafe area to relax in, either before or after training.
Chessington is a Surrey town situated between Leatherhead and Kingston-Upon-Thames. It is well known for Chessington World Of Adventures, a family theme park operated by the Tussauds Group. The town has an excellent college-owned Sports Centre which was home to one of our martial arts schools for almost a decade.
In July 2002 Sifu Lee Paul Heron opened his third school here shortly after he chose to devote his professional career to the understanding & teaching of the martial arts. The club taught hundreds of students, hosted lots of workshops & seminars, and even produced several instructors right up until September 2010, when a reorganization of all our local clubs & schools made the venue better suited to larger seminars & events, instead of weekly General Classes.
Come & Join Us
Between July 2002 & September 2010, our Chessington club welcomed students from many surrounding towns including Oxshott, Leatherhead, Tolworth & Claygate, but now these areas are better served by our other local schools.
