Hi I’m Mark Deacon, owner and chief instructor here at Deacons Martial Arts. I started martial arts and Kickboxing when I was younger, partly because I thought it was cool. Though more honestly because I was overweight, unconfident and basically unsure about everything in life, due to a family breakdown. Once I got over the initial worry about starting and jumped in, I loved it.
From there I went from strength to strength in my school and college work, and personal life. Started having more confidence, I loved the art form and started to do well in competitions too. Then the highlight of my time was winning the 2008 Kickboxing World championships in Orlando, It was a great time
and my biggest achievement in life at that time. This is until my daughter was born in March 2016 and I realised as a parent how scary life really is! haha.
By making sure there was a place people could go, to help guide them through to adulthood with confidence. Therefore helping other people succeed in life, and have them tell stories like mine, of finding this thing that helped them become who they are today. This is why I’ve set up our Martial Arts and Kickboxing programmes with exactly that in mind. This is how we can help you walk this proven path to success.
has started doing Martial Arts and Sparring with Mark I have noticed that he is far more focused, less distracted and more confident. Therefore more equipped in dealing with bullish, negative children at school! I would thoroughly recommend DMAF to any parent who would like to help with their child's confidence, strength and physical ability x
Mark has set up a superb kickboxing gym in his new establishment and the club continues to go from strength to strength. Mark is a fantastic coach and lovely bloke. He is great with both kids and adults, and understands the finer points of working with people to achieve their goals. Whether you want to earn a black belt, fight competitively, or just get fit and lose weight, Mark can help you. An expert in nutrition and fitness and offers transformation challenges for those wanting to get fit, as well as various kickboxing classes, for all ages and levels. I joined the club a year and half ago after searching for a local club and it's honestly the best decision I could've made.
The Kickboxing classes are fun and you come away feeling like you have learnt so much and have worked really hard. Mark is a great coach, always making everyone laugh and pays each individual enough attention to make sure you are doing all the moves correctly while showing you that you belong. Being able to be in the same class as my children is brilliant and therefore means we get to spend time quality time together doing something we all enjoy. Thanks Mark.
Kids kickboxing classes have a lot of energy and are aimed at the younger age group, with lots of games to hold their attention. The adults kickboxing classes have a great balance of martial arts techniques, cardio workouts, and sparring training. Mark and Charlene are really friendly and are always looking for new ways to improve the club. Would definitely recommend!
Transformation in every sense.... Not just a case of looking better and thinner thanks to the transformation challenge, but feel better mentally and also thanks to the kickboxing classes I can safely say as a survivor of domestic violence- I will never be intimidated again! The best thing I ever did was join DMAF!
My son loves it. Great coach with an awesome attitude (especially for kids). There an awesome atmosphere and friendly people attending. If you thinking of starting training (yourself and/or your kids) then look no further, just come for classes at DMAF!!! See you at the club - Michal & Blazej
absolutely loves this place. Her self esteem has sky rocketed since and her fitness is amazing now, since joining DMAF's Kickboxing Classes.
Mark is very supportive, patient, and approachable, yet professional and clearly an expert in his knowledge and skills. It is encouraging to meet with someone in this profession who is sincere and passionate.
My boys aged 5 and 6 have been coming to Mark for karate lessons for a year and a half now and they absolutely love it. DMAF is really friendly, with lessons good fun but very disciplined as well. They have made some great friends outside of school and are steadily working their way up the grades, children are encouraged to work hard but they aren't pressured to do so. I would highly recommend Deacons Martial Arts to anyone thinking of learning karate in Leicester.
