Where students come first

The AEGIS system was founded over 35 years ago by Chief Master Tony Higo. It is a modern martial arts system built predominantly around the disciplines of Karate, Kickboxing and Jiujitsu.

The AEGIS system teaches martial arts from a self defence perspective.  It is built around many key life skills and every class taught focuses on these to help us be the best version of ourselves.  AEGIS helps you to improve confidence, self discipline, personal fitness regardless of your age or ability.

The first AEGIS Academy was located in North Leeds; its success in helping people develop these key life skills alongside learning key self defence skills through martial arts means that it continues to grow and develop as an organisation throughout Leeds today.

The Leeds South AEGIS academy was founded in September 2016 and originally ran from the Middleton Leisure Centre in South Leeds. We’ve had the opportunity to help countless students acquire foundational skills, develop new techniques and confidently move forward in their learning journey.

The success and growth of our academy means that today it has grown into a well reputed full time academy with permanent premises now on Westland Square, just off Dewsbury Road.

We are proud to be certified with the Safeguarding Code, awarded by Sport England. Since September 2019, we are also pleased to be officially affiliated with BMABA, the British Martial Arts and Boxing Association.
