LOONG (Dragon) KEUN (Fist) DO (Way)
LKD is a modern scientific mixed martial art, created to be pertinent in a modern world as a pure self defence system it has no sporting elements.
LKD was created back in 1984 by professor Paul Treacy 9th degree and has been taught worldwide to the general public, body guards and security personnel.
Although LKD COMBAT was in development years before, it was as a Body guard to A list celebrities and while working as head of security at many London venues that the system went through many updates and improvements by Master Treacy . It was important to him that the art could adapt very quickly to any situation, and be taught easily to a student.
LKD uses concepts from arts our founder Master Treacy has studied, such as Wing Chun, Jiu Jitsu, Kickboxing, Kali, Boxing and much more.
This is the art to study if you’re looking for fast results and street effective techniques. No experience is required, and if you already study another art this system will enhance your existing skills and add a whole lot more to your repertoire, including conflict management,physical intervention, and knife defensive skills.
The training syllabus will take you from White to Black Sash, teaching you to defend yourself against one or more attackers. We will teach you to defend yourself from the ground, standing up, against knife attacks and more. You will be taught to develop your speed, power and skills using all the equipment provided at each class. You will feel your confidence increase and your sense of well-being enhanced by the end of each session.
This is a modern system with traditional values, taught in a friendly non intimidating way.

Our form of Jiu Jitsu is based on the Juko Ryu and Aikijitsu systems, as taught by Grand Master Richard Morris Soke 10th degree, the founder of Jiu Jitsu International. Soke Morris along with the co founders of the World Jiu Jitsu Federation, Master Robert Clark Soke and James Bludell Soke set about creating a modern Jiu Jitsu training syllabus back in the late 60’s early 1970’s. This syllabus was a combination of their shared vast knowledge and skills. They wanted an effective art while still retaining the Japanese traditions and values, a true self defence system.
Being a former student, friend and business partner of Soke Richard Morris, gave Paul the perfect opportunity to learn from one of the best and most renowned Jiu Jitsu masters in the world.
Senshi Jiu Jitsu is a continuation of the teachings of Morris Soke with the added knowledge and adaptations of our teacher, Paul Treacy Hanshi.
Paul started his study of Jiu Jitsu at the age of 13yrs old gaining his Black belt at 17yrs old. Paul also met and was fortunate to be taught by Grand master Brian Dossett Soke 10th degree, founder of Spirit combat (a fusion of Jiu Jitsu and Aikijitsu) who was another pioneer of Jiu Jitsu in the UK and Europe.
So you will find we have a rich and varied history with years of teaching experience and knowledge to share.


No,Japanese Jiu Jitsu(JJJ) is predominately a combative stand up style; not to be confused with the Brazilian Sport(BJJ) which has its roots firmly based in Judo. Although Judo is derived from Japanese Jiu Jitsu, ground work and throwing techniques make up only part of the JJJ training syllabus.
Developed and improved on the battle field over many years by the Samurai, the Budo art of Jiu Jitsu utilises locks, throws, strikes and pressure points to subdue an attacker.
As a self defence system JJJ does not rely only on groundwork; as intentionally going to the
ground to defend yourself is not something you would want to do while being attacked by one or more attackers, especially if the attacker is armed. As well as empty hand techniques the student will also learn to defend themselves against knife attacks and multiple attackers. Kobudo Weapons such as the Bo, Nunchaku, Tonfa, Sai and Kama are also taught as the students progress through the advanced levels of the syllabus.

What People Say

"I always struggled to find some one to teach me, but then found Master Treacy,he reassured me that I could undertake this journey in learning a martial art. I have found each session a challenge ,but catered to my abilities and so I am able to develop my skills at an encouraging rate. I find Master Treacy very adaptable to my disability and he constantly finds new ways to aide in my development . I believe through this way of study my disability has not held me back . I recently was tested for my yellow sash, which is my third grade in LKD Combat system."

Joey Sroka

"Master Paul Treacy’s abilities and fortitude in the martial arts are unique. I have had the distinguished pleasure of training with some of the top masters around the world and he is up there with the best. He is a true and shining light as an ambassador of martial arts. His style is a phenomenal self defence training programme which has enhanced my own skills and training massively;a true master of his craft."

Andy Gallagher

"As a professional close protection officer I have a high standard to details and professionalism.Having served in the army for many years I know the demands of being physically fit and disciplined. I highly recommend the phenomenal skills of Master Paul Treacy. If you want to learn a real no nonsense self defence system then this is the guy to train with."

Paul Hemmings

"Out of all the Arts I’ve practiced, LKD has to be the most practical and realistic, now don’t get me wrong, I’m not putting down other Arts but LKD answers all those “What if?” questions. It places you in the scenario of a street attack and teaches you how to get out of it in the quickest way possible, no flamboyancey, just straight to the point no messing."

George .A

"have trained at Paul Treacy's Academy of Martial Arts for over a decade now to the point it has changed the way I function in my day to day life. The volume of knowledge that Sijo Paul and Sigung Panos continually demonstrate never ceases to amaze me and over the whole period of time I've trained with them I have always received very hands on and personalized training/teaching whether I am in class or on the other side of the world. It is an honour to be a part of this Dojo, to have become part of the team of instructors and to see some of the guys I personally taught over my years here also become a part of that team. I'm looking forward to bringing what I have learnt as an instructor in LKD and Senshi Jiujitsu back to Florida with me and to continue passing on this knowledge the way it was taught to me!"

Joshua Rinderspacher

"Being a part of this academy is like being part of a family. The discipline and teaching is second to none, and although you work in a group you feel like your getting personal training. My daughter loves going to the classes and I hope she continues enjoying the friendly atmosphere and the lessons learned."


"As a person who has trained in various combat systems and styles. Paul Treacy’s academy offers a realistic view of applied martial arts. Great instructors respectful students, and effect applications for real life situations. Highly recommend!!!"

George Angelo

"I can truly say that i have seen the benefits of my daughter attending the academy, from defending herself against school bullies who were older than her to the focus and confidence she has gained."
