Lichfield Martial Arts was set up in 2017 with the intention of building a club which offered training across a range of martial arts disciplines, designed to be inclusive for all ages and abilities.

Lichfield Martial Arts

LMA Instructor Richard Buttery holds a current 3rd dan in Tae Kwon-Do with over 42 years experience in a range of Martial Arts including Boxing, KickBoxing, MMA, Jiu-Jitsu.

The club offers a range of self-defence and combat techniques to help people build confidence, keep fit, have fun and meet people of all ages and abilities.

Richard takes part in on-going professional development, and also has up-to-date Safeguarding and First Aid training, and a current DBS check is in place. 

The fundamentals of showing respect for each other, focussing on building skills, developing confidence and self-belief, and working together, run through each and every session.

The culture of LMA is to promote a supportive, positive & inclusive training environment, where everyone is welcome.

“I’ve trained with Richard for over 20 years and I can say without doubt he is one of the best instructors in the area”

Dean, 2nd Dan Black Belt

Martial Arts is a way of life, I don’t just say that, it truly is. You change the way you treat other people, how you perceive the world, and this becomes part of you over time.

Matt, 4th Dan Black Belt

Rich is really helpful, makes me smile and gives me courage to try new things.
