Training for Teachers


CCMA has long been a much sought after resource for established and burgeoning martial arts teachers for consultancy, continued professional development, and adding to and improving their curriculums.  Now we are offering the most comprehensive, honest self-protection teaching programme for children: “Animal Instincts”. This qualification will provide training and resources for martial arts teachers to autonomously offer bolt-on courses for their clubs or as standalone courses they can offer to schools and other institutions.  

Online Training

CCMA can now offer the same services they offered pre-Covid pandemic lockdown, but now with the added benefit of having full courses in place to train individuals online. This is beneficial for all clients who live outside the Oxfordshire region, including international clients, teachers, clubs and associations. Regular CCMA clients include residents in Ireland, Denmark and Australia. 

Clubb Chimera Martial Arts has a long history of developing effective and efficient methods for solo training to support other forms of training. These services especially came into play during the Covid-19 pandemic where individual clients and entire martial arts schools booked our services to be taught online.  All face-to-face training will be done with relevant hygiene protocols in place. Please see our risk assessment.
