*** What do I wear or need for classes ? ***

All you need is comfortable clothes, trainers and a great attitude. Barefoot is fine, but not in socks. We have all the equipment and there is a water fountain there too.

*** I am very unfit/overweight – can I still come ? ***

ABSOLUTELY– everything is 100% optional. Furthermore, we have different options for everything for different experiences and fitness levels.

*** Can I just turn up? ***

Booking is required. Please contact us directly. 

*** I would like to bring friends! ***

ABSOLUTELY - It is a great idea to work together PLUS there are rewards when you do! 

Just let us know !

*** Do you do competitions or full contact sparring ? *** 

Not in our regular group classes.

Sparring is a wonderful skill, but its not everyone's 'bag'.  We teach Sparring to interested individuals in separate segregated classes. As part of the wider martial arts community, Combat Solutions  serves and supports in-roads into the competitive sporting environment.

*** Do you do Beginners, Intermediate, and Advanced only classes ? ***

In our 10+ years experience we have found our members' confidence and skills grows rapidly when we mix partners of different levels! You will always have options, and be partnered with individuals of simiular attitude and physicality. 

*** Great! How do I Find You ***

CONTACT US TODAY to arrange your Trial Session! 
Do not follow Google's directions: it will lead you to a dead end entrance. 

Directions: Lauriston Gardens (much easier) – walk up the path into car park,  the entrance is diagonally right

Chalmers St – when you enter walk diagonally left, through the doors, walk to the end, turn right and go down the stairs. Once there take a right and follow to the end of the corridor (it turns right). 

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 ? ***

A full instructor-led introduction to all fundamentals of stance(s); strikes; kicks, guard; knees; elbows; hooks; uppercuts and opportunities to practice! 

On Arrival 

We assemble exclusively at the hall entrance via the free car park at the rear of St Thomas of Aquins. This is accessed via Lauriston Gardens.

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.

Before Class

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, and the current professional sporting contect to provide the most realistic combat solutions !

*** Can I come on my own ? ***

Yes, - though friends are always welcome too.  You will be well looked after, introduced to everyone and be put with a suitable partner.
