Since opening its doors in 2004, Freddie Poole's Martial Arts has been impacting thousands of lives in the community. Our friendly staff looks forward each day to helping our students achieve their goals.
Although standards are set high, each student at FPMA is evaluated on an individual basis to ensure progression on their own timeline. This approach ensures students achieve and earn rank on their own merit. We encourage our students to trust the process and enjoy it. Earning a black belt at FPMA is a once in a lifetime experience! The dedicated team of instructors at FPMA have taken their experience of martial arts and created a well-rounded training system for all ages. Freddie Poole’s Martial Arts is the most balanced martial arts training system, combining traditional training elements with practical real world application. By integrating both of these elements into one system, one can truly train in mixed martial arts.
Freddie Poole's Martial Arts has a YouTube channel for students looking to have a better understanding of techniques taught in classes or for those just looking to brush up on their skills.
