ABOUT

THE HOME OF LUXEMBOURG MARTIAL ARTS

THE VERAS ACADEMY STORY

ORIGINALLY ESTABLISHED IN LONDON IN 2004 BY SENSEI RAPHAEL VERAS, VERAS ACADEMY HAS ALWAYS BEEN A RENOWNED AND WELL-RESPECTED MARTIAL ARTS CLUB WITH VERAS BROS LUAN, LIAM AND LUCA AT THE FOREFRONT OF THE ACADEMY. WITH THE COMBINED EXPERIENCE OF THE VERAS BROS, ACROSS SEVERAL DIFFERENT FORMS OF MARTIAL ARTS, AND THEIR VAST KNOWLEDGE, THEY ARE NOW ABLE TO SHARE THEIR PASSION WITH FELLOW STUDENTS AND ENTHUSIASTS OF MARTIAL ARTS FROM LUXEMBOURG.

 

THE VERAS BROS, WHO ARE THE HEADS OF VERAS ACADEMY LUXEMBOURG, HAVE GROWN UP WITH MARTIAL ARTS IN THEIR BLOOD THANKS TO THEIR FATHER AND CURRENT LUXEMBOURG NATIONAL KARATE COACH, SENSEI RAPHAEL VERAS. A FORMER BRAZILIAN AND ENGLAND COMPETITOR, SENSEI RAPHAEL PASSED ON HIS PASSION AND HIS LOVE FOR ALL FORMS OF MARTIAL ARTS TO HIS THREE SONS, WHO IN THEIR OWN RIGHT HAVE FORGED A SUCCESSFUL COMPETITIVE CAREER FOR THEMSELVES.

 

VERAS ACADEMY LUXEMBOURG IS A NEWLY RENOVATED MARTIAL ARTS GYM, WITH FULLY EQUIPPED FACILITIES, OFFERING A RANGE OF CLASSES FOR YOU TO CHOOSE FROM INCLUDING, BRAZILIAN JIU-JITSU, BOXING AND KARATE. THROUGH OUR CLASSES WE AIM TO NOT ONLY INSTALL THE ETHOS OF DISCIPLINE AND RESILIENCE ASSOCIATED WITH THE VARIOUS FORMS OF MARTIAL ARTS CLASSES WE OFFER, BUT ALSO EMPOWER OUR MEMBERS WITH EMOTIONAL, MENTAL AND PHYSICAL GROWTH.  THE VARIOUS DISCIPLINES OF MARTIAL ARTS THAT VERAS ACADEMY OFFER ARE PERFECT FOR NOT JUST THE CONCERNING ATHLETE LOOKING TO DEVELOP AND HONE THEIR SKILLS TO THE NEXT LEVEL, BUT ALSO FOR THOSE LOOKING TO IMPROVE THEIR PHYSICAL AND MENTAL WELL-BEING AND BRUSH UP ON THEIR SELF-DEFENSE KNOWLEDGE.

“LUAN AND LIAM HAVE TAUGHT MY CHILDREN KARATE AND BRAZILIAN JIU-JITSU FOR A NUMBER OF YEARS NOW, DURING THIS TIME I HAVE WATCHED MY CHILDREN DEVELOP AND GROW; NOT ONLY AS STUDENTS OF THE MARTIAL ARTS BUT ALSO AS YOUNG PEOPLE WITH A STRONG SENSE OF DISCIPLINE, RESPECT AND HONOUR – ALL OF WHICH I BELIEVE IS THANKS TO THE WAY THEY HAVE GUIDED THEM.”
