Question: I really want to learn kickboxing or boxing, but have little or no experience, can I still participate?

Answer: Yes, many of our students from all walks of life are beginners or novices and we realise every individual's personal

fitness level is different to one another and so you will be taught to your level of fitness and experience. Most of our beginners are amazed at their level of fitness after attending lessons for at least a month.

 

Question: Am I too old to start kickboxing or boxing?

 

Answer: You're never too old to start any of these sports. We recommend you start slowly and then push yourself when you fitness levels have increased. We have a longtime student who is over 40 years old and he is fitter than the average 20 year old.

Answer: From 8 years. Children are naturally flexible and we recommend them to attend our kickboxing classes rather than boxing. Kickboxing instills confidence in them.

Question: Do I need to join membership right away?

 

Answer: Unlike most clubs, we do not ask you to join membership right away, instead take a few week's lessons and see if you would like to continue with the sessions. If you wish to commit further, we then ask for you to take up membership.
