Welcome to Phoenix Martial Arts

Taekwon-Do & Kickboxing classes in Cardiff & The Vale

Phoenix Martial Arts is a fresh, fun and family-friendly club in Cardiff and The Vale.


We teach across three disciplines; Little Dragons, Taekwon-Do & Kickboxing in Canton, Dinas Powys & Penarth (with plans to expand!).


Our students thrive at Phoenix Martial arts because we recognise that each student learns differently and we pride ourselves on tailoring our tuition to the needs of our students.


Our classes offer a modern and fresh-thinking approach to traditional martial arts.


In short, the secret to our success is a genuine love for what we do and our passion
to ‘pass it forward’.


Little Dragons

Our 4-7 year olds get a flying start on their martial arts journey in our Little Dragons classes. Our fun, high-energy and engaging classes help your little ones to learn the basics of martial arts in a friendly and encouraging environment whilst also introducing them to the etiquette of a traditional dojang (training hall).


Classes are designed to; improve coordination and balance, practice good sportsmanship and discipline and promote resilience and self-awareness.  Our Little Dragons classes are here to help shape our smallest students into focused, confident and enthusiastic martial artists. 

Taekwon-Do Classes

Taekwon-Do is a traditional Korean martial art that was developed by General Choi Hong Hi and was officially recognised in 1955. Literally translated, ‘Tae’ means to kick or smash with the foot, “kwon” refers to punching or destroying with the fist and ‘do’ means ‘art’ or ‘way’. 


In our inclusive and encouraging Taekwon-Do classes, you can expect high-quality tuition in sparring, patterns, breaking, flexibility and physical conditioning. Whether you want to pick up a new hobby or aim to compete at a higher level, our Phoenix family is here to help you reach your goals. We offer regular opportunities to test for new belts (to guide you one foot at a time toward that elusive black belt!) and also provide regular opportunities to compete for those who wish to test their skills on the mats.


Taekwon-Do is a great way challenge both your body and your mind.


Kickboxing Classes

Fun and physical, you’ll be sure to get a good workout from our dynamic and energetic kickboxing classes. 


A typical kickboxing class includes pad drills, fitness, conditioning and sparring, and challenges our students to improve their technique, power and stamina every week in a safe and supportive  environment.


Kickboxing has multiple sparring styles including; point-stop, continuous and semi & full-contact. Adults have the opportunity to explore and experiment with each style whilst junior students focus on point-stop and light-continuous sparring only.
