The Development of ‘Mind, Body and Spirit’ Through Martial Arts
Why Martial Arts?
Martial Arts are more than just exercise. They are primarily a form of self-defence and a great source from which to gain personal confidence. Kickboxing can help you avoid threatening situations or enable you to effectively deal with them if unavoidable, being prepared can make all the difference. Kickboxing also provides an excellent opportunity for social interaction in a fun and very exciting environment.
What is Kickboxing?
Kickboxing is one of the most popular styles of Martial Arts; our particular style is a mixture of Karate, oriental kicking and punching and western boxing. It combines self-defence, aerobic workout, flexibility, coordination and speed.
What sort of people practice?
Kickboxing is suitable for men and women of all ages and all levels of fitness. People who practice kickboxing are those seeking to challenge themselves, find their limitations and develop beyond them whilst having a great deal of fun.

What happens in a class and will I get hurt?
Classes begin with a thorough full-body stretch, once properly warmed up students learn basic kicks, punches and combinations. Attack and defence sequences with a partner and exercises follow this.
The classes are non-contact, so there is no risk of getting hurt and the sessions last approximately 1 hour. Separate classes are available for students who wish to spar and make light-contact.
What do I need to bring to my first lesson?
Wear loose clothing – tracksuit trousers and a t-shirt are best, plus a clean pair of socks. Also bring a towel.
