Tallaght Martial Arts, based in Tallaght Business Park (formerly Whitestown Industrial Estate) Dublin 24, was formed out of a Kung Fu tradition by Martin Bannon and Dave Heffernan. The club grew from small beginnings, with only 7 members meeting once or twice a week, quickly it expanded to many of the small school halls of Tallaght, but now the club has moved into its own full time martial arts and sports performance centre.
The Club can boast several World and European champions. Through all its success and change it has managed to maintain a small close knit 'feel' which is palpable on entering the club. Martin and Dave pride themselves on running an extraordinary mix of discipline and a solid training regime in a friendly competitive and fun atmosphere.
The centre now works with other sports clubs and athletes in Tallaght offering strength and conditioning and sports performance expertise as they strive to attain the next level of sports performance. The core of the club has always been rooted in the community of Tallaght, and TMA also provide ﬁtness/weight loss boot camps and personal training based on proven scientiﬁc methods (there will be no quick ﬁx methods here, but also no injuries) for individuals and small group sessions. If you want to get ﬁt, improve your sporting performance or train for personal health/ weight loss this is the only place in Tallaght to be.
