MartialBody reliably creates attributes for Power,
Performance, Health & Longevity

When you interact with a high level martial artists you will notice a certain 'something' about them. It might be the way they move so effortlessly, the apparent strength beyond their size, the inherent stability or simply the efficiency by which they do things.  Many of these qualities are not easily trained, you can't hit the squat rack to feel heavier to your opponent. However, it is these, seemingly un-trainable, attributes that MartialBody directly focuses on developing. 

MartialBody gives you a structured and planned system of training to reliably create the attributes that are so often only felt in the elite exponents. Using a combination of old style martial arts conditioning, modern sport science, ancient soft styles of training we give you a complete framework to train and develop your very own MartialBody


The 6 key attributes of the Martial Body

The MartialBody system is divided into 6 separate key attributes. These 6 attributes feed one another to create a complete methodology for producing a 'MartialBody'. These 6 are observed in the top martial artists of the world to varying degrees, be that UFC champions, Olympic Judoka, Tai Chi Grandmasters or Karate Sensei.

“It was rarely the techniques that impressed me when I met the Elite Martial Artists of various styles. It wasn't what they did ... it was how they did it! It was they 'felt' ... their highly developed  power, accuracy, subtly. When I realised this, I knew my training had to be focused on those things, not just techniques. "

Hundreds of Real Martial Artists are benefiting from this work

  • “Firstly, this stuff is WAY harder to do than it looks! But the payoffs are big. I have trained in the Heavy & Stable body modules and could immediately see and feel why they are relevant to me as an MMA athlete. My wrestling and take down defence has shot up and my hands are heavier than ever!”
  • "Coach always seemed to make the method specific to the individual he was coaching, even in the crowded room which was so refreshing. Coming from a Wing Chun Background, my requirement is different to that of the BJJ guys in attendance and this was skillfully handled meaning that every exercise was still extremely relevant to me. Great system, awesome coach.”
  • "Training with Coach in his BJJ classes I was always struck with his structure and weight. Now I know why! In one session I got a taste of how he is able to exert so much pressure for his size. HeavyBody work is a clear advantage for anyone into grappling, for throw defense and top pressure it really makes a difference. Definitely worth a look a this no nonsense work.”
  • "One month into some specific exercises from MartialBody and my niggling shoulder pains are gone. Simply exercisese that produce amazing results, Coach Chris specified a routine for me to follow, explained the science behind the methods and then it was down to me to train it. What a difference 30 days made, I literally feel like a different person, thank you coach.”
