The Hands Down Story

This is a family run club. Michael and Kalon Page are the directors and co-owners of the Hands Down Martial Arts Academies in the UK. Two high achieving athletes and martial arts pedigree.

I think all children and adults should do martial arts its more than just about being fit. Its about being disciplined, focused and a role model in your community . you don’t have to be a competitive champion to be successful with the martial arts and there are few other sports that can say the same.

Why are we called hands down?

Hands Down Represents a specific style of fighting. In most martial arts defending in combat is dependant on blocking, we are more dependant on our distance, timing and movement. This allows us to fight with our hands down as we are always two steps ahead of our opponents. We know how close our opponents need to be to make contact way before our opponents do.
