“He who knows men is clever, he who knows himself has insight, he who conquers men has force, he who conquers himself is truly strong …” –Lao Tze
This can change from time to time but on average 10 to 14 students per class.
Many Schools of Martial Arts have a set 3 to 6 months grading policy.
However at the MD Academy we believe that each person will naturally develop at there own pace therefore there are no set dates. Each person will simply grade when they are ready.
The most important thing is to be comfortable, t-shirt, tracksuit bottoms and trainers.
The system of M.D. Martial Arts was developed in 1992 by Sifu Marc Davis. The letters M.D. are the initials of the founder of the system – Marc Davis, and represent his development within Martial Arts and his unique expression of the knowledge gained on this journey.
The system initially came about from Sifu Marc Davis’ desire to be proficient in all areas and ranges of Martial Arts in order to be a complete Martial Artist. His desire was to develop not just an art form or sport, but a system that would be useful in real life.
To date Sifu Marc Davis has taught over 1,500 students across England and all over the world ranging from complete beginners to black belts from other Martial Art disciplines, people in security jobs and bodyguards.

The most important thing when planning to start any form of Martial Arts is to find the one that suits you the best.
The MD System is not a set form of Martial Arts and therefore we focus on developing each individual according to their strengths. No matter what your experience is or your physical prowess we can help you because we cover all areas of combat.
