MYALO Origins & Philosophy

MYALO martial arts & fitness has a storied and deep-rooted history forging martial arts in Kilkenny and Ireland’s southern region for over a decade.

Our academy was founded with the vision of providing a space where individuals of all backgrounds and abilities could come to learn.

With experienced and seasoned coaches at the helm, we’ve continuously strived to uphold the highest standards of instruction. Our coaches have honed their skills through years of dedication and hard work, a journey that has taken some of them to the world’s most prestigious promotions.

We take pride in the fact that our professional athletes have ventured into the international stage, competing on platforms such as Bellator, PFL, IBJJF Worlds, and Grapplefest, showcasing the caliber of talent we nurture within our ranks.

However, it’s essential to recognize that this is only a fraction of what defines us.

For anyone seeking to transform their lives through martial arts, our doors are wide open.

We understand that real success extends beyond the mat. We’ve witnessed countless individuals with busy lives shedding weight, becoming stronger, building self-esteem, and evolving into better versions of themselves through our programs.

Our true goal is to empower every member, providing a platform where they can cultivate not just physical strength but also strong bonds, camaraderie, and a sense of belonging in a nurturing and supportive environment.

At our core, we are more than an academy; we are a community, a family, and a place where lives are transformed.

We are team MYALO
