The Classes are structured in a manner to build the ability and technique at a speed that is suitable for the individual. Instructors are taught to warm up all students thoroughly before commencing any techniques to prevent pulled muscles and injury.Time is spent on stretching muscles of the body to enable students to perform dynamic movements safely and effectively, and various exercises are used for full body conditioning to improve stamina, strength and co-ordination. Strike shields, focus pads, protective equipment and skipping ropes are regularly used in training sessions.

The South East Academy is well known on the the tournaments scene. Students who are interested in competing in tournaments are encouraged, but we do respect the wishes of students that do not wish to compete. SE Academy of Martial Arts has produced two World Champions, and multiple European and Domestic champions.
