About Optimal Martial Arts


Optimal Martial Arts & Self Defence was established in May 2000, and has been teaching martial arts in Wakefield ever since.

We teach martial arts because it is what we love to do, the club is NOT run as a business to make profit. All our instructors are volunteers who have been with the club for many years and are here to help pass on what they learned. There are no contracts or direct debits, we simply charge £5.00 per session that you attend. If you would like to give it a try come along and give it a go, your first session is FREE, what do you have to lose.

Some Benefits of Training With Us


The style of Jiu Jitsu we teach is very self defence orientated and continually evolving. You will find the techniques we teach are tried, tested and proven to work in real life combat situations.
We believe the most effective way to stay safe is to spot danger early and avoid it before it happens. We encourage our students to recognise the signs of potentially dangerous situations and take action early to avoid the need for conflict.
Unfortunately there will always be people out there who take pleasure in making other people miserable. We teach tried and tested methods of dealing with bullies and violence is always the last resort.
Our martial arts training is very hands on and physical, so the more you train the fitter you will become. But everyone trains at there own level, so regardless of your current level of fitness you will be able to benefit from the training.
We run our classes in a friendly, supportive and encouraging environment, so you can rest assured you will feel at ease from your first session. As your training progresses you will notice your confidence and self esteem building week by week.
We are a friendly and welcoming club with people from a wide variety of backgrounds. You can be sure you will be made to feel welcome from the moment you walk through the door.
