What are our classes? Best way is to come along and find out for yourself - understand that you get out what you put in, so be prepared to put in your best effort to get the best results and to come away buzzing!
We run 4 kids Kickboxing classes a week:
- The MONDAY 5pm Junior Development Squad is aimed at competition, and covers sparring and competition techniques for all levels.
- Our TUESDAY 5pm and FRIDAY 6pm session covers our unique syllabus and grading system. This class is usually the best starting point for school children that are Year 1 and over.
- The THURSDAY 5pm advanced class is for our Yellow belt students and above and focuses generally on higher grade techniques.
Often, by the age of around 14/15 we move our Juniors up into the Adults classes.
