Hi, my name is David Hughes, the founder of HF Martial Arts

I run the Thornton and Wrose venues, and head the ITF Taekwon-do programmes at our venues. Martial Arts have been a lifelong passion of mine, starting from aged 12 when my Dad dragged me to my first lesson, even though I was adamant I wasn't going to go!

From the moment I stepped through the doors of my first lesson, it's changed my life forever and I've carried that passion through to our schools.  Having trained as both an adult and a junior, and having a continued competitive career which started aged 12 years, I know the benefits for all ages that martial arts can provide, which is why I decided to open up our first ever school back in 2014. 

Whether you're looking for a bit of fitness, to socialise, build confidence or push yourself to further your limits and see what you can achieve, there's so many benefits to starting martial arts but the toughest thing is definitely making that first choice to give it a go and walk through the doors for your very first lesson. 

That's why we offer a 2 week free trial period so you can give it a go, see how you or your child do, and then can make a no-pressure decision from there. Give it a go, it may just change your life!



What Age Is For Ladies Only?

Do I Need to be Super Fit to Start?

Will I Be Expected to Fight?

Is it Fun?
WeYes! We tailor all our classes to be enjoyable for both student and instructor, and we take great pride in delivering classes that leave us all going home smiling after having a blast!
