I notice there are no women in the pictures on this site. Do you take female students?

Good question. Yes, we do teach female students. However, they are few and far between. This could possibly be put down to the trend that more men want to learn martial arts than women.

Here, it is important to point out that men and women are treated equally. At the Institute we set high standards of excellence. At times training will be demanding and intense, especially in sparring. However, Phil Allen will take great care to teach the individual at his/her own pace and will only move onto more challenging aspects when he/she is ready.
