Location

Located in the heart of Deansgrange our Academy is located at the rear of Deansgrange Business Park, just passed and around the corner from the NCT Centre. Within the Business Park there is a coffee shop/deli. Directly across from the entrance to the park there is a Chinese restaurant and Grange pub serving food daily. Also a minute to the left of the business park is a large public park with tennis courts and football pitches where we take our training if we are lucky to enjoy some good weather! A good selection of businesses can also be found, a pharmacy, chip shop, super value, Lidl and Bank of Ireland. For those attending our seminars there are a number of guest house b&b's in the area. The bus stops are also within two minutes of the Business park entrance and the N11 is 3 minutes by car and the M50 no more than 7 minutes. The local parishes of Dunlaoghaire, Foxrock, Stillorgan, Monkstown, Blackrock, Sallynoggin, Dalkey, Loughlinstown are all within 10 minutes' drive from the Academy.

Kung Fu Studio - This is one of two larger training areas for our traditional Kung Fu and Tai Chi classes. Yoga and Aerobics classes also take place here. Complete with all the traditional Shaolin training tools, Olympic rings, traditional weapons, gloves, safety equipment and striking pads this mirrored room also has a seating area for our parents and guests to watch our classes and is also where we have our TV/DVD player. With padded walls and 20mm matted flooring this training area is designed for maximum safety during practice.

MMA Room – Equally spacious, this room is extra padded with a spring wall and 40mm tatami mats on the floors. With 8 boxing bags, a speed ball, a floor to ceiling ball, cardio equipment, sand bags, weight vests and a selection of free weights our fighters have everything they need to get themselves in peak condition.

Kitchen area – Our Kitchen has a fridge, a freezer with plenty of ice for the inevitable bruises, a kettle with a stock of tea and coffee, and a microwave for those who didn't have time to get home before practice.

Male & Female showers, toilets and changing rooms – With separate areas for male and female members and a power shower to be found in both there's no excuse for not training even if you have a hot date after class;-)

Academy Shop – We have a Martial arts shop with uniforms, shoes, safety equipment, books and dvd's.
