Mcleod Academy of Martial Arts providing Martial Arts classes in Bruce Lee's Jeet  Jun Fan Gung Fu, Kali and combat submission wrestling.  The Club also provides Ladies only  Kick Boxing Classes and Childrens Classes

The Chief Instructor at The McLeod Academy is Neil Mcleod. He has 20 years experience in martial arts with over 15 years of experience in Jeet Kune Do, Kali, Muay Thai Boxing and Grappling under the amazing Bob Breen and his Instructors at The Bob Breen Academy, London.

Neil has trained and fought all over the world from Los Angeles, USA to Manila, Philippines and has coached many champions in Full Contact Stickfighting. He is himself a former World Champion in Eskrima (another name for the Filipino art) and is one of a handful of people to have held the British (16 times), European (2 times) and World titles at the same time.

Many of the students from The McLeod Academy have won British and European titles and have travelled to Ireland, Spain and the Philippines to compete against the best.

More recently, Neil has competed in many Vale Tudo (No Holds Barred) fights and became the British Bantamweight Champion. He feels that by competing in these extreme matches, he can learn a lot about 'real' one-on-one combat and then honestly pass on his experience to his students instead of them taking his word for it.

Neil has credentials in JKD and Kali under Bob Breen and Terry Barnett who are both Full Instructors under Sifu/Guro Inosanto. Neil is an Associate Instructor in Jun Fan Gung Fu/JKD and The Filipino Martial Arts under Sifu/Guro Dan Inosanto, (awarded after being an Apprentice Instructor for only 2 years, the fastest promotion by Sifu Inosanto ever!).

He is also an Instructor in Combat Submission Wrestling (CSW) under Sensei Erik Paulson who is 5 times Lightheavyweight World Shoot Wrestling Champion.
