In 2008 ACS Martial Arts, in conjunction with Dunstable based International Atemi Jujitsu began jujitsu classes in the Stopsley area of Luton, Beds. After converting to full time coaching David Brown, chief coach, began extending his teaching portfolio to include a variety of complimentary coaching qualifications and it soon became apparent that the leisure and community centres in Luton and Bedfordshire area couldn't support the many classes we were now able to provide - a full time centre was needed.
In 2014 ACS MAGFA: martial arts, games and fitness academy was created as an umbrella title for all the various services we could now offer from a single location:
In 2014/15 ACS MAGFA began renting studio space in Taylor St Luton, from where all these and other activities could be supplied. In addition, it also served as a base for local Luton schools to come and experience what we had to offer as well as providing convenient storage for all our equipment needs when we occasionally provided classes for the schools themselves.
In 2017 ACS MAGFA relocated to our current new premises in Charles St Luton where we continue to offer Martial arts, Self Defence, Kids and Tots classes. Our primary focus is our martial arts classes where we focus on teaching the core principles of jujitsu coupled with character building elements rather than quickie belt promotions.
