EOMA freestyle martial art

Since the age of 16 (1986) I (Mr.C) have always been involved in the martial arts, I decided to take all of my knowledge and skills with my wife (Sharon) assistance, to create Earth & Ocean Martial Arts (EOMA). The first class commenced in January 2008.

I’m always looking to improve and develop the style as my knowledge of the martial arts grows!

In 2011 I began my studies of Shan Xi style Xing Yi Quan in Beijing with my BaGuaZhang master Mr Xiang Zheng. He gave me permission to incorporate it into EOMA saying "the combination of long range kicks and xing yi's close quarter hand techniques would make it a formidable style".

The main concepts of EOMA are based on the theory of Yin & Yang; the techniques can be soft and fluid as well as dynamic and powerful.

Do you want your child/children to learn and improve on the following:


Junior EOMA classes are especially suited and designed for children to learn and benefit from the above qualities; they will also gain goal setting skills i.e.
Belt progression, twice a year they will be tested on their newly learnt skills for achieving their next belts.
Merit badges, every 8 weeks they can go for a merit badge these are a specific martial art skill, if performed correctly can be gained,
