I am a complete beginner, does that matter?

No not at all, we welcome beginners to all our martial arts, kickboxing and self defence sessions. 
We love having mixed abilities as it gives everyone the chance to learn from other students not only the instructors. 
We give everyone a warm welcome and are very patient so just get in touch and we can get you started on your martial arts journey.

Can i have a FREE trial?

YES we offer a no obligation 2 week FREE trial to try out our martial arts, kickboxing, self defence and children's classes.
Just fill out the contact form and we will be in touch. 
You can train as much as you want in any class for 2 weeks for FREE.

Do you have kit i can borrow, or do i need to bring my own?

For hygiene reasons we do try to limit lending equipment, that said we can sort you out a pair of gloves for the trial period if you don't mind using a 2nd hand pair. 
We also have a full pro shop where you can get kit at a very reasonable price. 
Kit or lack of will not hold you back coming for a trial, and once you become a member you can buy it bit by bit as you progress.

I am a little worried about getting hurt, will i be ok?

We teach proper martial arts whereby we spar and make contact with each other regularly.  Getting bumps, knocks and hits is all part of the fun. 
That said, we make sure that people build up to this and are not put off by being hurt or scared, you can go at your own pace and everyone is very respectful of differing abilities, sizes and strength. 
So we will look after you and make sure your experience with us is enjoyable.

The more the merrier, although you will be fine on your own and will make friends straight away.  We pride ourselves on being welcoming and friendly martial artists.  But if you have a friend or friends that are interested in checking out our classes we would love to see them too.   Martial arts is for everyone :)

Can i bring a friend with me for a trial?
