EMAR is the best Dojo/Martial arts Gym in London and this is due to Sensei Simeon not being your average Coach. As someone who has studies a variety of martial arts disciplines over the years, Simeon is hands down the best I have had. He has the experience of competing on an international level and has been very successful championing in Kyokushin Karate (Full contact Karate), Kickboxing and Boxing. Regardless of all of his accomplishments he still has a very humble, understanding and approachable demeanour. Training with EMAR has strengthened not just my body but also my mind making me a more resilient and disciplined individual. As a secondary school teacher I would highly recommend training at this gym for children and teenagers. With a free trail class you cant go wrong.
We send our 6yr old boy to Elite Martial Arts. Simply put it is phenomenal. Simeon (Sensei) is absolutely fantastic with the children of all ages and adults alike. He leads by absolute example yet despite his tough and disaplined character, is also extremely welcoming and has the audience respecting the classes, but equally thoroughly enjoying them. My son is hooked, he is learning great life skills, discipline, and inclusion. And with a bit of luck will get his red and white belt in the next few weeks after a couple terms of attending classes on either a Saturday or Sunday, sometimes both. If you are considering a martial arts class. This is the BEST for miles!
Almost 13 years with my coach Simeon. I came as a guest, and stayed as family. He has helped me become multiple time UK and International champion. If you are serious about training, whether you're from MMA, K1, Muay Thai or Boxing background, you can be sure that you'll be training with one of the TOP Kyokushin Dojos in the UK.

Elite Martial Arts Richmond (Simeon) has changed my life in so many ways. This club not only inspires you to be better, to feel good but to also keep challenging yourself. I gained so much confidence and self esteem by training with Sim. I highly recommend women and men to take personal training sessions with him. My petite frame lost 4 kg which was a lot and I gained my life back. Simeon is also very passionate about what he does. He loves this job more than anything and you can expect only 250% from him. If you commit to bettering yourself, he will also commit to helping you reach those goals.
As the Father of a 4 year old Girl - I was keen to see how my little Princess would do when she joined Simeon and Elite Martial Arts. 9 months later, she looks forward to her Saturday Mornings with great enthusiasm and is very proud of her Red belt. They say Martial Arts are a great way to install discipline and focus at an early age. Simeon does this with both empathy and firmness and has a unique connection with his young "ninja's". Would recommend Elite Martial Arts (aka Simeon) all day long......
