Since its inception in 1987, it has conquered the area of Martial Arts in Abu Dhabi by bringing in the professional Instructors, well-maintained Dojos (Training Areas) and a reputation to bring the best performance out of their students.

8 Branches in Abu Dhabi - Oriental club has 8 sophisticated training centers in Abu Dhabi with more than 1500 active students. More than 19000 students have been trained under the club. The club conducts campus and contract classes running in and around Abu Dhabi. We also provide transportation for the students.

We teach weapons like BO (Long Staff), Nunchako (the most useful hand held weapon in the world), Sai (an ancient traditional weapon), Tonfa (the weapon which police forces use in most developed countries) Kama, Chux, Sanchako etc., which will truly challenge one’s martial arts abilities.
