Martial Arts Schools of Fitness - Dundalk
This is Ethan he was diagnosed with Charge Syndrome. He is also deaf in one ear and has to wear a hearing aid in the other. Ethan trains in martial arts with me for the last five years and has come so much. He is a great guy with a cheeky smile and a good heart. Ethan wants to raise money for the deaf society that he is in. It is called the Irish Deaf Society. Have a watch of us explaining more in the video. Sorry about the loud audio in the background but we still get the message across.
Help us help feed the homeless.
Trunk-or-Treat is designed to get the families and friends in our local area to come together for a fun night of trick-or-treating and a “Not-so-Spooky Halloween Party”. And for the older children and parents we have an all new Scary Virtual Reality experience. The idea is the parents decorate the boot/trunk of their car, and in our safe, controlled parking lot area of our martial arts school, the children can come out for a night of trick or treating, supervised and well-lit. The parents have fun decorating the boot/trunks, and the kids can wait inside having a blast with our “Not-so-Spooky Halloween Party”. While the parents finish prepare their vehicles, and get ready to pass out candy to the kids. The more cars that can come out and participate the better. Not to forget, a prize will be awarded to the best decorated car.
Due to the severe wether warnings we will have no martial arts classes today Monday 16th. Stay safe everyone.

The Dundalk U13s travelled to Balbriggan early on Sunday morning in the hope of continuing their recent run of good performances and results. It was their last North East fixture and a win would qualify them for the upcoming semi-finals. Dundalk were well represented by a very healthy squad of 26 players. The match kicked off with Balbriggan taking the game straight to the visitors. A strong bustling run by their centre set up the opportunity for their number 8 to score in the corner. From the restart, the lads again found themselves under pressure and despite brave tackling, the hosts crossed the whitewash again. Captain Max Valentine pulled the team together and their response to his promptings was more like what the doctor ordered. Conor Whyte (as he did all day) carried the ball ferociously to the heart of the Balbriggan defence. The re-energised pack recycled the ball and Fionn Connolly expertly spread it wide to the strike runners in the backs. A series of phases ensued between the backs and forwards which culminated in Eoin Purton pugnaciously powering over for a sensational team try. Connolly added the extras but unfortunately for Dundalk, Balbriggan sneaked another try on the stroke of half team to leave the score 19-7. Some substitutions and positional changes gave the lads renewed impetus and on the back of a powerful run by Jack Mullen, Liam O Connor took full advantage as he glided majestically over the line. The black and whites were on the front foot now and the Balbriggan defence was creaking. Ryan Martin pressurised the hosts' backline like a rabid dog and turnover a critical possession. Excellent subsequent interplay between backs and forwards allowed DD Reilly to duck and dive through the defence to skate in for another score. The game was really in the melting pot at this stage and against the run of the play, Balbriggan scored a breakaway try. Credit to the lads, they drove straight back up the field and were camped on the Balbriggan line. Wonderful defence continually thwarted the visitors until Cian 'The Cooley Bull' McGuiness picked and barrelled over for a wonderful score. This left Dundalk trailing by two points but DD Reilly bisected the posts to level the match with three minutes remaining on the clock. The nerves were jangling on both sets of supporters as Balbriggan restarted the game. A magnificent fetch by Josh Spaight put Dundalk on the attack again. A terrific sequence of passing resulted in Bobby McCaul receiving the ball on the wing. Try as they might, the defence could not stop the 'McCaul Train' as he barged over for the winning score. Final score Balbriggan 26 Dundalk 31. A super performance from the lads with all 26 having match.
Dundalk's Senior Ladies rugby team took to the pitch today for the first league game of the season and played an exciting game of rugby against Tallaght RFC. Trailing 17-0 at half time, Dundalk came back in the second half to score two consecutive converted tries to bring the score to 17-14 but a a more composed Tallaght side showed their experience and started to put the pressure on the the home side who put in some massive tackles in defence. In the end after an entertaining and exciting game of rugby tired legs kicked in and Dundalk conceded 3 tries in the last quarter of the game to bring the final score 36-14 to Tallaght. Well done to players and coaches Niall Kerley and Dermot Lennon 👏🏻 Leinster Women's Rugby #Dundalkladiesrugby 💪🏻
