The history of SD School of Martial Arts

SD School of Martial Arts was established in 2003 by Colchester-based, 6th Dan former England Karate international, Sean Doyland.

Soon afterwards, it moved to a purpose-built dojo at Global Park, East Gates, Colchester where Sean and his team of dedicated instructors offer the very highest standards in the instruction of Karate and other martial arts.

We are now based in a leisure facility in Colchester, with a large purpose-built dojo, incorporating Energyze Gym and Fitness and our superb Ultimate Ninja UK obstacle course.

We have built our reputation on professionalism, achievements and quality of student service.

Our classes will help you achieve lifetime self-defence skills, build confidence, get into shape and relieve stress.

From our Colchester base, we attract members from across north Essex who are keen to learn a range of disciplines including karate, boxing, kickboxing and Krav Maga.

We offer dedicated classes for toddlers and young children, Little Dragons, designed to be fun whilst building core skills that will benefit them in the years ahead.

We are very proud to have been the only martial arts club in the east of England to have been included in the London 2012 Pre-Games Training Camp Guide.
