welcome to the mcleod academy!
We are a martial arts school based in Aylesbury with classes for everyone from the age of 8 onwards.
Our mission at the McLeod Academy is helping others, through the vehicle of Martial Arts, to become healthy, happy, confident individuals.
The Instructors at the McLeod Academy are Neil and Rachael McLeod: a husband and wife team trained by Bruce Lee's friend and student, Sifu/Guro Dan Inosanto.
Both Neil and Rachael have competed globally and have British, European and World titles between them in a variety of disciplines.
Our curriculum consists of Bruce Lee's Jeet Kune Do, Filipino Martial Arts, Muay Thai and Combat Submission Wrestling.
JUN FAN/JEET KUNE DO (JKD) / FILIPINO MARTIAL ARTS (KALI):
The art of Bruce Lee lives on! Sometimes referred to as Jun Fan, Jeet Kune Do translates as 'the way of the intercepting fist'. It includes Kickboxing, Wing Chun and Grappling techniques with an emphasis on intercepting an attack.
Kali is a Filipino martial art and though it is predominantly weaponry based, it has an excellent empty hand element with Kickboxing and grappling. A great art to turbo charge your coordination and reflexes.
Day/Time: Monday & Wednesday, 6.30pm-7.30pm
COMBAT SUBMISSION WRESTLING (CSW):
CSW was created by Sensei Erik Paulson, a pioneer in Mixed Martial Arts competition in the USA. It is a hybrid system consisting of various Wrestling styles, Brazilian Jiu-jitsu, Japanese Judo and Shooto, Russian Sambo and Filipino Dumog. Both Neil and Rachael are certified coaches under Sensei Erik Paulson.
Day/Time: Tuesday, 6.30pm-7.30pm & Wednesday 7.30pm-8.30pm
MUAY THAI / THAI BOXING:
The famous art from Thailand. Known for it's heavy kicks, knees, elbows and clinch work, Muay Thai is great for physical fitness as well as self defence.
Day/Time: Monday & Tuesday, 7.30pm-8.30pm
JUNIOR MIXED MARTIAL ARTS:
Our Junior class curriculum is a mix of Kickboxing and Grappling taken from various styles. Striking pads and wrestling with other class mates makes these classes both fun and great way to let out all that energy kids have!
