Hi, I'm Master Kara Mitchell, Chief Instructor of the Leeds South AEGIS Academy

Martial Arts has given so much to me, I want more people to benefit from it too

I began my AEGIS journey in 2012. I really wanted to improve my confidence, maintain my fitness levels and also learn some self defence skills.

I quickly discovered I had a passion for the martial arts and after 3 years of training as a student, I was invited to join the  Certified Instructor Training program and I begun my Instructor Training! 


I have been running the South Leeds AEGIS academy since September 2019, where we have a growing community of martial arts students of all ages & abilities.


Martial arts has changed my life for the better and it's my goal to pass those same benefits to all my students so that more people can grow & develop in the same ways I did.

We help develop your child for the future

We don't just focus on the punching & kicking, our curriculum is more focused on teaching key skills and personal development. We want to your child to become a future leader in the community. Our programs are important to help children develop the skills and habits for a successful future..

It is difficult to find and maintain a fitness routine, to find something that keeps you motivated, engaged and feel like you are progressing. Our martial arts classes are perfect if you find the gym boring. They also help build important habits and skills so you can reach your goals & potential in all areas of your life.
