Hi, I'm Master Chris Hunt, Chief Instructor of the Leeds West AEGIS Academy

As a Parent, I know how important Martial Arts training is for the whole family

My Martial Arts journey started as a parent sat at the side, watching my 2 children. After their first trial lesson I saw the benefits it would have for them immediately & didn't hesitate to enrol them.

While watching, I saw how much fun they were having, how they were developing & even other parents training on the mat getting the same thing. So I thought, why not get started myself! I wanted to support my children and boost my own confidence by pushing myself to do things I wouldn't normally try.

After AEGIS Martial Arts had helped me so much, I wanted to help other people learn & benefit how I had. So in 2017, I joined the Certified Instructor Training Program and began my training to become a qualified AEGIS Martial Arts Instructor.

The best thing for me about being an Instructor is helping people who are in the same situation I was, needing more confidence, and it's a privilege to guide and support them on their Martial Arts journey.

A fun & engaging approach to fitness & self defence

It is difficult to find and maintain a fitness routine, to find something that keeps you motivated, engaged and feel like you are progressing. Our martial arts classes are perfect if you find the gym boring. They also help build important habits and skills so you can reach your goals & potential in all areas of your life.
