"Aidan is putting together some of the most comprehensive MA courses and teaching that I have had the pleasure of seeing. I believe that he is at the forefront of a new wave of martial arts, he is not just teaching physical technique, but changing people's lives for the better. I always recommend Aidan Carroll." –Geoff Thompson - Martial Artist & BAFTA Award Winner
"I had never done any self defence before and was a bit nervous going. On arrival the instructors introduced themselves and we were made feel very weclome. The course itself was a real eye opener, no fancy moves or routines just practical knowledge about how to avoid situations and if necessary deal with them...." –Robbie Blake
