Kickboxing

Kickboxing is a martial art that primarily uses punches, kicks, and throws. We are a friendly society that welcomes everyone from the complete beginner to people reaching for competition standards, and we have professional instructors to cater for this.

About Kickboxing

Kickboxing is a hand to hand self-defence combat sport that combines punches, kicks and throws. Unlike Muay Thai, elbows and knees are not used in sparring which reduces the risk of injury.

We offer a friendly, informal training environment taught by professional instructors over multiple sessions a week. The sessions each have a different focus so you can train exactly how you want to.

Sessions:
Monday: 19:00 - 20:30 in the Cube
Saturday: 16:00 - 18:00 in the Martial Arts room
Sunday: 15:30 - 17:00 in the Martial Arts room

We are different from other Martial Arts as we do not use belts or undergo grading; our focus is purely fitness, technique and FUN!
