Welcome to the Festival Martial Arts website. Festival Martial Arts is a community martial arts club which runs every Thursday during term time at Clehonger Village Hall in Clehonger near Hereford. The martial arts styles taught are mixed martial arts (M.M.A.), Kali/Escrima and Freestyle Kickboxing. We are also a licenced Skillz martial arts school and a member of the World United Martial Arts Federation (W.U.M.A.). Festival Martial Arts moved from Cheltenham  racecourse to Clehonger Village Hall in March 2017.


Return from Corona Virus Thursday 10th September

Due to the Corona virus outbreak we have had to close due to the virus restrictions. Clehonger village hall will be reopening soon, and we will be back with classes from Thursday 10th September when the schools go back. When we do return it will be with restrictions. We will only be able to train with limited numbers. When we do return please book via the link in the class times section on this page.

If the class you would like to come to is marked as FULL - WAITING LIST then please contact us via the contact us page to be added to the waiting list and we will advise when a space becomes available.
