Whitstable’s S2 Martial Arts Academy

Based in Whitstable, the S2 Martial Arts Academy is run by World Champion kickboxing brothers Tommy and Frankie Smith.


CommunityAd had the pleasure of speaking with Tommy to find out more about the wonderful sport of MMA…


Can you give readers some background information into your own martial arts experience and when you started S2 Martial Arts Academy?

Myself (Tommy) and my brother Frank have both got over twenty years’ experience each in Martial Arts. We both hold multiple World Champion, European and British Titles. I am also a former member of the GB Taekwondo Olympic Team prior to setting up our own S2 Martial Arts Academy.

We are really passionate about the power of Martial Arts to transform lives, improve confidence, reduce anxiety and give people an outlet to release stress.


What would you say have been your proudest moments so far as a club?

We have trained one of the youngest female WAKO World Champions, Ruby Monger, who is 16 years old from a complete novice.

In January, we attended the WKO English Open Championships where we took 8 competitors and came home with 7 golds, 3 silvers and 3 bronze medals.


Are you currently looking for any members/volunteers and if so how can readers get in touch to find out more?

To anyone that would like to find out more our address is Ground Floor, Unit 8, Joseph Wilson Industrial Estate, Millstrood Road, Whitstable, CT5 3PS and our telephone number is 07920 772344.


Where would you like S2 to be in the next 5-10 years?

We are coaching future young leaders and giving them essential life skills, and as passionate as we are about females joining it is also a safe place for boys and men to come in and have a chat and know they are supported for mental health. These are important short and long term goals that we aim to strive towards.
