A self-defence club based at Swet FA in Sunnyside Road, Weston, has tasted success on the world stage with several world champions among their ranks.

Miroslav and Zaneta along with their assistant instructors: Chris, Martin, Filip and Veronika, successfully take care of ABC students.

Since 2014, the club has achieved great success in the world martial arts field, with Miroslav and Zaneta multiple world champions.

The students enjoyed great success at the All Styles World Championship too. Held in Caldas da Rainha, Portugal, the club have brought back two gold medals, four silver and five bronze medals.

This brings the total to four former and current world champions at the club: Sigung Miroslav Danihel 2014; Sensei Zaneta Polakova 2014, 2016; Filip Baranik 2017; and Lukas Cikovsky 2017.
