DMA Dowden's Martial Arts Owner

Hi, I’m Mr Ashley Dowden .

I KNOW HOW DIFFICULT AND CONFUSING
FINDING A MARTIAL ARTS SCHOOL CAN BE.

I remember when I was a child, feeling uncertainty about beginning martial arts. I wondered if I had what it took to succeed and I wasn’t the most athletic or confident child - quite the opposite. Little did I know that beginning my martial arts journey would be one of the most profound experiences of my life!

When I opened my school in 2005, I made a commitment to serving and empowering the community of Whitburn by teaching children and adults the confidence, leadership, and fitness skills that can only be achieved through martial arts.

We Share & teach The Same Values You Teach At Home.

Our programmes have a strong focus on personal development. The foundations of our morals, values and core character traits are formed in our early years. For this reason, the programmes at DMA Dowden's Martial Arts are an essential way to enhance the growth and personal development of young students of all ages.

WHAT IS TAEKWONDO

Taekwondo is the style of martial arts practiced by DMA Dowden's Martial Arts students.
The journey from White Belt to Black Belt is one of incremental learning and skill development, that students of any age and fitness level can embark on.

FUN, EXCITEMENT & PREPARATION: STUDENTS & PARENTS LOVE MARTIAL ARTS TOURNAMENTS!

One of the most fun parts of martial arts training is the ability to test your skills by competing in a tournament. Tournaments are not only fun for competitors, but they also become a great social experience for parents as well!

From sparring to patterns to team demos, these awesome competitions are not only a place where our students can test their skills, but also a place where team spirit is built, fears are overcome, and character is developed. Most importantly, they are tons of fun!
