I have been training in kickboxing for 18 years now.  So far, I have reached the grade of 5th degree black belt (Master grade) in kickboxing and black belt in Aikido.  I am a certified instructor with the Cobra Martial Arts Association and the BAB (British Aikido Board).


We are based in Andover, Hampshire.  Our training is mainly done using kick pads and punch pads, so there's no pacing up and down the hall kicking and punching thin air!  All training is done with a partner, but if you want to come to the lesson alone, there's always plenty of students who will be happy to train with you.  We practice in a warm, friendly and happy atmosphere.  Our kickboxing contains elements of Muay Thai, i.e. elbow and knee strikes.  We practice a lot of self-defence techniques, such as blocking a knife attack, how to counter being grabbed round the throat, the hand/wrist, etc.  We don't just use our hands and feet in our training, we also use our shins, knees and elbows. 

We appreciate that there are many different reasons people decide to start training.  As well as learning a martial art, you may wish to become more confident, get/keep fit, lose weight, socialise or just get out of the house for a couple of hours.  Whatever your reasons for training, you will enjoy training at our club!  Everyone is welcome.
