History of LIMA

Our time line

From 2008 an unofficial group was formed, consisting of representatives from Grandmaster Lee’s academy, the Action for Rehabilitation from Neurological Injury (ARNI) Institute and the Rambert School (in collaboration with University of Kent) Ballet & Contemporary Dance with the aim of meeting the perceived need to form a syllabus both for further and for higher education, using martial arts as an underpinning value system. This group was formalised in 2012 as an Educational Charity with LIMA as its registered name and now works solely from a new premises in Isleworth, West London.
