About Us

G5 Evolution Martial Arts Academy is home to a martial arts facility, Swindons premiere full-time centre.

G5 Evolution Martial Arts was established in Swindon in 2009 by Shihan Ken Stronach, Tora Kai Karate Founder and Grand Master Instructor.

One of our founding members Sensei Jim Miller, Master Instructor and Combative Aikido 5th Dan, opened the Poole Dojo in 2012.

We don’t encourage violence or anti-social behaviour. We do encourage you to train hard for your own self defence and personal growth. Great people are just ordinary people with an extraordinary amount of determination; they understand that happiness is not found in the absence of conflict, but in the ability to cope with it. The difference between the impossible and the possible lies in a person’s determination.

Our unique Karate based Freestyle martial arts system incorporates multiple Karate styles, Aikido, Jiu Jitsu, Kung Fu, Judo and Kobudo weapons. Other fitness systems such as Yoga, fitness coaching, Kickboxing and various other community based activities run from the centre too.

Our instructor team has over 300 years combined knowledge in martial arts, each instructor bringing their own unique skills, qualities and experience to the Academy.

Our goal is to offer every student a safe and fun place to grow and learn, to feel PASSION FOR LIFE, and in turn for Martial Arts. For them to develop COURTESY, LOYALTY and RESPECT. For them to grow with PERSEVERANCE, HUMOUR, INTEGRITY and SELF-CONTROL. For them to gain life skills that will make every one of them a winner in LIFE.

The Journey from White Belt to Black Belt is definitely a long and hard road but this is why earning a Black Belt is such an amazing achievement. When asked how long it takes an average person to get a Black Belt we always answer, “The average person will never achieve a Black Belt”.

Black Belt is only achieved by extraordinary people through dedication, commitment and years of hard training but don’t be put off by this; we have been creating high quality black belts for over 20 years, the G5 Instructor team are here and fully committed to teach and guide all students through to Black Belt.

Unfortunately many Martial Arts Schools give belts away every 6-8 weeks with little or no effort from the students, creating worthless Black Belts – WE DON’T DO THIS; your child’s Black Belt will be earned and recognised on the official National Black Belt Register.
