MEET OUR HEAD COACH
Dr. Rodney King, affectionately known as 'Coach,' stands as a visionary in the world of modern martial arts. His journey of over four decades began in the rough neighbourhoods of Johannesburg, where martial arts were a means of survival. It has since transformed into a holistic practice that transcends mere combat techniques, offering a blueprint for personal excellence both on and off the mat.
At the core of Coach Rodney's teaching lies the principle of self-ownership—a belief that true strength is forged by walking the path less travelled. In an era dominated by external competition, perpetual hustle, and the chase for status, he posits that genuine growth can only emerge from a bold rejection of societal prescriptions of success.
Blending frontline experience with scholarly precision and the latest insights from human flourishing research, Rodney charts a course for martial arts mastery that harmonizes physical prowess with inner peace.
The outcome is a transformative martial arts experience that shapes not just fighters, but mindful warriors—equipped to thrive in the arena of life, embodying the virtues of resilience, presence, and purposeful action. Under Rodney's guidance, students learn that the ultimate victory is in mastering oneself.

"Rodney is the 'real deal' when it comes to all things 'street'. I 100% encourage students of the arts to investigate what Rodney King has to offer. You will not be disappointed. I know I wasn't."

"I’ve been a fan of the Crazy Monkey Defence for many years. It was a great privilege to have Rodney come out to Kings Academy to teach a seminar. It was even better to see his passion for teaching and the effectiveness of what he taught."
Dr. Mark Green, Lieutenant Colonel US Army (retired)
"As a fellow martial artist who has a powerful mindset and is a master at winning, Rodney King inspires, teaches and has taken his life of training to empower others to take on life and win. He is a true master in his art and a warrior with the knowledge and the grit anyone would want to learn from.
