Luke Burks

Luke Burks

Owner | 3rd Dan Shorai Black Belt | 9 x British Kickboxing Champion

Mr Burks' martial arts journey begun as a 9 year old shy, un-confident boy who was invited to his local community centre to join in a children kickboxing class by a neighbour. Instantly taking to martial arts, over the next ten years Luke would win nine British titles, represent his country at world championships on multiple occasions, earn his black belt and become an instructor.

Fast forward to 2013 and X Martial Arts School was born! Over the next two years the school grew to a huge success while not only producing British, European and world champions, also producing a team of fantastic, passionate and dedicated instructors. But also providing focus, fitness and confidence to the masses.

2016 saw a huge change of direction for Luke as he opened the first two X Martial Arts School franchises with his team of instructors.

"I've been very fortunate to have been taught some world class martial arts skills by my instructors, colleagues and friends. Our goal at X Martial Arts Schools is to reproduce this on a larger scale than previously available and allow thousands of everyday people to receive the benefits available through the X Martial Arts Schools Programmes"

Jay Britland

Jay Britland

Chief Instructor | 3rd Dan Shorai Black Belt | 15 x British Kickboxing Champion | 2015 WKKC World kickboxing champion

Jay also began her martial arts journey around the same time as Mr Burks, at the same martial arts school.

Jay's presence on the competition circuit was even more dominant, over her years of training Jay has won world, European and national titles in an array of disciplines.

Having taught martial arts straight out of college, Jay was the perfect instructor to own the Ossett location.

"Having picked up so much knowledge and experience on the competition circuit I'm keen to pass all of this information over to our members, whether they train for competition success, to improve focus or fitness. My passion is to help them achieve their goals"

Tom Beal

Tom Beal

Owner of X Martial Arts Schools New Earswick - 1st Dan Shorai Black Belt

Having being taught by Mr Burks and Mrs Britland throughout his full martial arts journey, Mr Beal understands exactly how his classes need to be taught and the professionalism required to run an X Martial Arts School.

After achieving his 1st Dan Black Belt in 2015, Tom opened up a satellite martial arts school in New Easrwick using the massively popular set of programmes and systems already established in York.

"I love teaching the professional martial arts programmes to everyday people available through X Martial Arts Schools. I currently teach at all three locations and I'm looking forward to moving the New Easrwick School in to a full time facility in the future"

Sam Watkinson

Sam Watkinson

In 2014 Sam joined the X Martial Arts Schools instructor and competition team and has grown from strength to strength in both! Winning two world kickboxing titles last year and becoming a full time instructor straight from college. Mr Watkinson teaches at all three locations currently and is looking forward to opening his own X Martial Arts School in the future.
