About Us


Elements Martial Arts was founded by Yousuf Nabi in 2011. As someone who had had something of a revelation when he discovered Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, he wanted to bring these types of martial arts to more people so they could experience what he experienced and improve their confidence and fitness just like he did. Now the martial arts academy runs full time with busy timetables across two locations teaching adults and children.


A really important message that Yousuf wanted to convey when he started this academy, was that martial arts is for everyone and not just very sporty types so he wanted to tell his story to show what a not typically sporty person can achieve.
