We Are Back To In-Person Classes

Posted: November 11, 2021

The coronavirus pandemic seems to be slowly but surely losing its grip on keeping us at home and virtually training. With the amazing work of the NHS and the vaccine rollout, what we knew as normal before seems to be coming slowly back.

Over the last few months, we have progressively introduced training back to normal, less virtual classes and more of a focus on in-person programs.

We have decided as a company and gym to STOP our virtual classes moving forward and focus purely on the sessions in our academy.

Our Virtual classes were a perfect move in the global climate to keep us fit and active whilst things were closed but with the transition fully back to in-person classes, you can reap the rewards to the maximum.

This blog is designed to give you an update of our current situation, whilst showcasing all our classes available and the benefits of training regularly.

Self Defence Classes In Surrey: Children Programs

From traditional martial arts to more contemporary MMA styles, our academy is the ultimate training ground for people of all fitness and skill levels. We have two adult programs you can choose from:

Tiny Tigers

We can guarantee our Tiny Tigers program for children between the age of 3-6 is the best martial arts program for kids, ever.

Tiny Tigers allows children to feel engaged with our martial arts program by providing strong visual cues to help them align with their achievements and goals.

We have only recently introduced this program, it's exclusive to children that love martial arts. Take the plunge and gift your child with this extraordinary program!

After Tiny Tigers, your child has two pathways, kids martial arts being one. From the ages of 6-9 children can take their learning to the next level. The foundation of the kid's martial arts curriculum is the ongoing review and development of life skills such as:

  • Positive mental attitude 
  • High goal-setting
  • Perseverance 
  • Self-control 
  • Confidence


After Tiny Tigers, this is their second avenue. This is a martial art blueprint in Jiu Jitsu - it allows you as parents to be confident you’re raising leaders. The class focuses primarily on developing the fundamental skills that young students require to effectively learn Royce Gracie Jiu Jitsu.

The ongoing development is the same in both pathways, whether your child takes Kids Martial Arts or Kids Royce Gracie Jiu Jitsu.

As you progress up the ages so do our programs. Designed to tackle the challenges of life our Teens Martial Arts program gives you the tools to become a successful, confident, leading, young adult.

The foundation of the teen's martial arts curriculum is the education and development of life skills such as positive mental attitude, high goal-setting, perseverance, self-control and confidence.

Teens need an environment to become independent and challenged to their maximum and our program can give them the gateway.

Today’s world keeps getting tougher for teens. Here at Ellis Academy of Self Defence, it is our goal to create a safe and encouraging learning environment, where they can learn self-defence, discipline, and confidence without being ridiculed for their mistakes.

Jiu-Jitsu is widely considered the most effective form of self-defence in the world and has become hugely popular especially with the explosion of UFC. The primary goal of Jiu-Jitsu is to control a resisting opponent in ways that force him into submission by grappling.

Self Defence Classes In Surrey: Adult Programs

Our Adults Martial Arts program provides a way for adults to stay in shape. It won’t become dull or boring like a gym routine. As soon as you get better and progressively learn, there are always more challenges ahead to keep you inspired and coming back for more!

We specialise in both programs, but Jiu-Jitsu is a unique art that truly teaches self-defence for the real world. Based on simple principles and instinctive movements, this reality-based system is designed to teach real self-defence in the shortest possible time.
