We Can Help with our great Martial Arts Classes... 

Are you looking to improve your children's confidence or even your own? Wanting to be more successful, fitter, healthier and more resilient?

I realised as a parent how scary life really is! My Children's Confidence is now of paramount importance!

Hi I’m Mark Deacon, owner and chief instructor here at Deacons Martial Arts. I started martial arts when I was younger doing a mix of Freestyle Karate and Kickboxing. Partly because I thought it was cool. Though more honestly because I was overweight, unconfident and basically unsure about everything in life! I needed to improve my confidence as it had taken a knock. 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, college work, and therefore personal life. I started having more confidence, loved the art form of what I did and subsequently started to do well in competitions too!


Then the highlight of my time was winning the 2008 WKA World championships in Orlando.


It was a great time and my biggest achievement in life to that point. It's amazing what's achievable when Children's Confidence Skyrockets and they develop into adulthood.

This is until my first daughter was born in March 2016. Then I realised as a parent how scary life really is! haha. I now want my Children's Confidence to boom and will be enrolling them as soon as they are old enough.

My son and I both do classes at DMAF - we love it!Kids Martial Arts Classes have a lot of energy and are aimed at the younger age group, with lots of games to hold their attention. The adults Martial Arts Classes with a great mix of Karate and Kickboxing 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!

Me and my son (6years old) joined the club last year. 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

My daughter (9) absolutely loves this place. Her self esteem and confidence has sky rocketed since and her fitness is amazing now, since joining DMAF's Martial Arts 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.
