Junior Classes

We have an age specific Junior Syllabus which helps develop flexibility, strength, balance, spatial awareness, confidence, team work skills and fun! Our Junior Syllabus acts as a foundation for further progression as your child grows. Once a student reaches his or her 11th Birthday they are transferred to the Cadets class continuing their martial arts journey and personal development.

Cadet Classes

If your child is aged between 11 and 15 yrs old they will be old enough to join our Cadets class, learning the Stringer JUKADO Cadet Syllabus. Techniques taught at this stage of progression are more technically and physically demanding of the student as befits their age range and abilities  whilst also teaching effective self defence methods applicable to and usable by young people.

Senior Classes – 16yrs plus

The complete Stringer JUKADO System is taught in these classes by experienced high level MCSDA Instructors. This class is open to anyone aged 16 yrs or over. Beginners are always welcome as are people with previous martial arts experience, all we ask is that you approach training with an open mind.

Advanced Self Protection

Open to females only aged 14 yrs and over. The Advanced Self Protection class at MCSDA has been specifically designed to teach effective self-defence methods against attacks most commonly experienced by females. Come and learn effective methods of self defence in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere, taught by experienced instructors with real-life experience of dealing with violence.

Acting on the directions of government, MCSDA will be closed until further notice. I know there may be other Martial Arts Schools still operating or offering small group sessions. Martial Arts is a very ‘up close and personal’ activity and ours especially so, therefore the enforcement of social distancing is vital to help slow the spread of this virus.
There have already been some cancellations of payments. I totally understand, but we are going to suspend payments for all members from April. What this means is; Aprils payment will be taken, and we will credit this to all members upon our resumption by giving them a month’s free training and a free grading once we are up and running again.
If you cancel your payment, your contract states you are liable for the month in advance as everyone is on a monthly rolling contract. By suspending payment, we have tried to ensure you don’t lose out. If you choose to end your journey with us during the enforced break, then please cancel your Direct Debit at the bank and NEST will action it accordingly.
Suspension means once we resume everyone will get that month back and not have to pay plus a free grading. We are trying our very best to ensure the survival of MCSDA so that we are here for everyone once this critical time has passed. I hope that our members will support us through this difficult period and that we will all emerge stronger and better than before. I intend to use this enforced break to look at our operation and to see if there are ways, we can improve on what we do and look at class structure and timings, syllabus refinement etc.
It’s difficult, and I know many of our member’s may face uncertain times ahead.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for their support over the years and wish you all well and look forward to everyone being back at MCSDA as soon as possible, so we can get back to what MCSDA does best ‘changing lives’ Please keep an eye on our Facebook Group Page as we intend to resume operation at the earliest, safest opportunity. We will update the pages on May 1st or before if things change significantly.
Until then, look after each other and stay safe.
Gary Stringer Lead Director MCSDA
