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
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.
