Golden Tiger Academy - Blanchardstown is the premier martial art school teaching effective self defence in Dublin 15. We provide training in Wing Tsun Kung Fu which is a close range striking art, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu which is primarily a ground based grappling art and Escrima which is a Filipino weapons based martial art.
Classes in Golden Tiger Academy - Blanchardstown are taught by Michael O'Leary. He has been teaching Wing Tsun in Blanchardstown since 2004 and in 2017 also began training Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu under Ken Byrne, the founder of Golden Tiger Academy in Dunboyne. He was awarded his blue belt in August 2019 and as he began to teach Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu to his students, Wing Tsun - Blanchardstown became Golden Tiger Academy - Blanchardstown. While Michael teaches weekly classes, his coach Ken Byrne provides seminars and examinations throughout the year.
Michael has over five years experience training in Escrima. He is a student of Brian Kennedy, the Irish representative for Guro Nate Hill's Blood and Bones Tactical International and is currently training to become an instructor. Brian provides seminars for Golden Tiger Academy - Blanchardstown members every few months and in between workshops, Michael acts as a study group leader where students can train the material on a weekly basis.
