Jamie Muldowney


Stockton-born Jamie Muldowney is our highly qualified martial artist with over 26 years’ experience in the field. He got into martial arts from the age of eight – when his sister took him along to some classes – and hasn’t looked bac since. With more than 15 years of teaching under his belt, his martial arts styles include Karate (2nd Dan), K1 Kickboxing style (2nd Dan), Kempo (1st Dan), American style Kickboxing, Muay Thai, Grappling, Judo and Kali.
Jamie said: “Coming from a family of martial artists, it’s in my blood and I haven’t looked back since I first started my training.
“When I started teaching I realised my dream of owning my own gym and my passion for this practice continues to grow. The great thing about martial arts is it really is for everyone, and we invite people to come and give it a go for themselves and discover what they can do.”

At 20 Jamie studied under Sensei Stuart Ashley an expert Kempo practitioner. It was under Sensei Ashley’s guidance in 2005 Jamie achieved his 1st dan in Kempo and undertook his martial arts instructor career.
Jamie then spent two years training five days a week in a variety of styles to further his knowledge including Kickboxing, Karate, MMA, Kali and Self-Defence.
It was also in this time Jamie competed in Grappling and Kickboxing for both the English and British titles, as well as achieving his 2nd Dan whilst training and teaching.
Fast forward to 2007 and Jamie was teaching martial arts full time to levels of experience and preparing students for gradings. This is where his ambition to open his own Kickboxing and Thai Boxing gym came from, and he knew he wanted this to be in the town of Middlesbrough.
Often described as friendly and approachable, Jamie is an excellent teacher who can guide you through your training and help you improve your fitness and martial arts practice.
