Iain Abernethy"Bristol Dojo must be one of the most impressive facilities I've visited. Not only is the dojo itself first class, but Simon O'Brien and his team of instructors have a infectious enthusiasm and uncompromising desire to both be and produce the best martial artist possible.

There is always an amazing atmosphere at this dojo and when you combine that wilh high quality, thoughtful and pragmatic martial arts you have a wining combination that all dojo's would so well to aspire to. This has to be one of the best facilities the UK has to offer and I highly recommend Bristol dojo to anyone wanting to get the best out of the martial arts".
