Charlotte Watson is from the Lee Matthews Military Martial Arts branch in Leeds.
I have been training since the age of 8 and have recently become 5th Dan. Martial Arts has always been my biggest passion in life. I opened up the branch in Leeds in September 2009 and haven’t looked back since. We have also just opened our own full time Academy so that the students can enjoy the advantages of training in their own facilities. I am very approachable and will help to get the best out of all students. We aim to run as a family and get together for social events for both children and adults.

I think BMMA offers a fantastic vehicle for students to learn martial arts and take charge of their own self-development.
It's amazing to see the friendships that are built, their skill level develop and how hard they all work as well as their passion and drive.
Being a coach with BMMA has hugely improved my own personal discipline, as it is always clear what is expected of me - my very best!
My son, aged 14, has achieved so much. His confidence has grown and is now a qualified instructor and Revolution English Champion. Thank you BMMA for everything!
My 2 children come here twice a week. Not only have I seen their fitness improve but their discipline too. A great club with a great atmosphere. I cannot recommend BMMA enough.
Jake & Dan's classes have impacted all 3 of my children's confidence, skills, discipline and fitness have improved at an incredible rate - they love the classes and look forward to them all week!
As a mum, I love the confidence and techniques they are developing to 'stay safe' and, whilst Jake keeps it fun, I think these are important life skills for all ages. I can't recommend BMMA enough!
I honestly didn't think Martial Arts was something I'd enjoy but I'm so pleased I gave it a go. Each week combines a tough but fantastic workout in a friendly environment and Jake and Dan never fail to keep the classes such fun. I highly recommend trying it!
I attend BMMA as a (cough) mature student who has always been 'allergic' to exercise. But after only a few weeks, I've seen changes in my overall fitness levels as well as positive changes in my body tone.
All of the instructors are friendly and helpful, a credit to Charlotte and the effort that she puts in. My daughter is a little soldier and has just accomplished her red and black stripe belt and wants to be a black belt like Charlotte!
My children have been training with Charlotte for 7 years and all 3 enjoy her classes. We're very proud to have a black-belt in the family - and two more in the making! The atmosphere at the academy is very friendly and the other instructors are great too. We wouldn't train anywhere else!
Since starting BMMA, my 2 children have grown in confidence and made tons of new friends. They're always smiling from ear to ear whilst training hard. Thank you Jamie for being an inspiring guide.
