CDA - martial arts cheltenham

CDA is a martial art and self defence club in Cheltenham, running kickboxing and self defence sessions at our own specialist venue - the CDA Academy.

  "CDA was founded from our passion to access all areas of martial arts and to offer our students a unique blend of techniques and training from around the globe.
By being open to the full spectrum of martial arts you quickly notice the similarities and not the differences in the many different styles. Cross-training allows you to fully explore your own potential as a martial artist without limitations. We want students interested in exploring their own style, and by exposing them to an array of traditional and non-traditional training we aim to develop them into rounded, confident and skilled individuals
