What to do if you want to come to class There is no need to book classes, just come along to the one that suits your schedule that week.

We combine a fitness warm up, conditioning and stretching, then on to martial arts techniques, and bring in self-defence too.

Fitness level Don't worry about your fitness level, everyone starts at their own pace, and builds up according to their individual abilities.

What to wear Wear track suit bottoms, t-shirt and trainers, and bring some water with you too.

Suitable for all Classes are suitable for all levels, as we split the grades with separate instructors, and we have new comers starting all the time, so you will always fit in and have an enjoyable session.
