If you can, please arrive say 10-15 mins early that way we can have a quick chat before class.
*** What should I expect from my first class ? ***
Everyone assembles in the green seating area about 15mins prior.
You are strongly encouraged to come a little early to change, use facilities and socialise if you wish. It's super relaxed and a great way to meet the other members.
We will have a short introductory chat and introduce you to our other friendly members.
Beginning with an individual warm up with a variety of exercises and stretches, you will be looked after personally by our instructor for the duration as you learn and practice all the basic movements. From here you will progress to some some pad-work with a partner provided.
Class ramps up gently to a crescendo of fun conditioning, before winding down with a cool down and some stretching to finish.
*** Age restrictions ? ***
Although no strict limit, suggested minimum is 15 years old up to about +/- 45 years old (depending on fitness level and strength)
*** What styles do you teach ? ***
While we mainly focus on Western Boxing, Kickboxing and Muay Thai, we frequently draw on other experience of other martial arts to provide true combat solutions !
*** Can I come on my own ? ***
Yes, equally if you come on your own you will be well looked after, introduced to everyone and be put with a suitable partner.
*** I fancy trying a free class – what’s the next step ? ***
