About us

EHMAA was set up by Head Coach & Owner Emil Herzberg in January 2013.

Emil Herzberg Martial Arts Academy (EHMAA) is a Kickboxing & Freestyle Karate Academy based in Cannock, Staffordshire, which operate from Pye Green Community Centre, and was founded by Emil Herzberg in January 2013.

The club it's self has been well established here since September 2006.

Emil wanted a new venture, and to build his own business which meant leaving his original academy (UKCK), after spending all his time training and coaching under them for over 20 years, in which he had built great memories. During that time Emil gained a lot of respect & experience from members, parents and coaches inside and outside of his training at the academy. In that time Emil gained both 4th Degree Black Belts in the arts of Freestyle Karate & Kickboxing, and was a regular competitor on tournament scene, competing in Full Contact Karate / Points Fighting & Light Continuous.

Emil runs the academy with coach Simon Manifold throughout the week. Both Emil & Simon have trained in martial arts (Freestyle Karate & Kickboxing) and have 25+ years experience each to their names.

EHMAA have an amazing team of professional instructors and volunteers who are DBS checked, NAKMAS safe kids accredited, first aid trained, and with many years training experience in Martial arts and have great knowledge to pass on to all of our students, and are all here to help you achieve your own personal goals, wether that be to build your self confidence, enhance your fitness, meet new people, progress through the syllabus or even hit the tournament scene. The choice is yours! We pride our selves with having a very high standard throughout the academy and are proud of what we have all achieved so far.

Since opening we’ve trained and coached members too, National, Regional, European & World Champions.
