Urban Martial Arts & Fitness Owner

Hi, I'm Carl Swaby.

I KNOW HOW DIFFICULT AND CONFUSING
FINDING A MARTIAL ARTS SCHOOL CAN BE.

I remember beginning martial arts as a child, feeling uncertain, and wondering if I had what it took to succeed. Little did I know that beginning my martial arts journey would be one of the most profound experiences of my life! Since becoming a martial arts instructor, I have helped hundreds of students of all ages and fitness levels achieve their goals.

When my brother and I opened our school in 2004, we made a commitment to serving and empowering the community of Gloucester & Stroud by teaching children and adults the confidence, leadership, and fitness skills that can only be achieved through martial arts.

We Share & teach The Same Values You Teach At Home.

Our programmes have a strong focus on personal development. The foundations of our morals, values and core character traits are formed in our early years. For this reason, the programmes at Urban Martial Arts & Fitness are an essential way to enhance the growth and personal development of young students of all ages.
