Anita, Martial Arts Instructor
Hi, I'm Master Anita Drury, Chief Instructor of the Leeds North AEGIS Academy

I want children, adults & families to benefit from Martial Arts the same way I have

I first came to AEGIS Martial Arts as a spectator parent after enrolling my son. I enjoyed the whole ethos of the Academy and the Instructors there.  After watching the classes for some time, I became intrigued in just how much the AEGIS System helped people grow in confidence as well as skill and fitness, and having always been quite shy myself I thought perhaps it could help me too.

My son loved the classes and had decided that he wanted to become an instructor eventually.  When I eventually I did join and  stepped onto the mat with my son for the first time,  I actually joined straight into the full CIT Program from day one, as I had decided that the best way to support my son was to train as an instructor with him!


AEGIS has changed my life quite literally, with support and encouragement from the Instructors I grew in confidence, qualified as an instructor and changed career to run the Leeds North academy with my son.


I am very proud of what we have and continue to achieve here at Leeds North AEGIS, and the thing I love most is watching those shy students step onto the mat for the first time, nervous as I had been, and helping them along the way, watching them grow in confidence,  becoming the best version of themselves, and then eventually presenting them with their Black Belt!

"This place is fantastic. My son (8) has been attending this martial arts center for nearly 2 years now. He really enjoys the fitness aspect of building strength and learning new skills but it is his confidence that I'm enjoying watch grow. The instructors are always friendly and professional. I would recommend the class to anyone young or old."
