our PREMIER team

meet the premier team

At Premier Martial Arts and Fitness Academy we believe that our biggest asset is our tight-knit group of experienced instructors and staff. In our Premier Team, all of our instructors are developed “in-house”, having come through our Leadership Program. This program is a pathway for students who would like to work towards becoming an instructor. All of our instructors train regularly in both timetabled classes and also in dedicated instructor sessions every week. They are also continually refining their skills by attending training courses, seminars and completing further qualifications. All are dedicated to the process of life-long learning.
