About Borders Martial Arts

Borders Martial Arts is a martial arts club with classes throughout the Scottish Borders, founded by chief instructor John Wilson in 2005.

We have two qualified instructors, and also have visiting instructors on a regular basis. We are associated with WUMA, and our gradings and belts are validated by them. Although there is the option to progress through the belts, martial arts training can simply be an excellent way to keep fit.
