Kickboxing Classes throughout Dorset
Timetable - All ages
What is kickboxing?
Kickboxing is a practical way of learning how to defend yourself, it combines the kicks from martial arts such as Thai boxing, Taekwon-Do and Karate and mixes them with the devastating punches and footwork of western boxing. Our classes are aimed at the student who wants to increase their fitness and stamina, without performing the rituals that come with some more traditional martial arts.
All our kickboxing classes are done to music, which helps the student to push themselves harder and keep motivated.
Most of our classes are for over tens and adults both male and female, while in Blandford, Sturminster Newton and Wimborne younger children can take part. The classes last an hour and mainly consist of pad work, sparring and fitness training as well as learning about personal safety.
There are kickboxing gradings, which are held every three months, and tournaments are also available, whether it be semi-contact or full-contact. Students have access to all Network training camps and in the spring have a whole weekend of training devoted to Kickboxing and combat training.

Yes, you can either come on your own or with someone else, which ever way the choice is yours. all our clubs are friendly and inviting and the classes are designed so that you will quickly settle in. There are various levels of fitness in the classes, so don't worry if you're not as fit as some of the other students, you will progress at your own pace. And with the help of the instructors and the other students, who, remember were all beginners at one stage, soon you'll be on the track to success.

For the first couple of classes just wear comfortable sports clothing, tracksuit bottoms and a T-shirt are the normal attire for a beginner. When you are ready you can purchase your own uniform from your Instructor. We train in bare feet, however if you have a medical reason then training shoes are acceptable.
Do I need any special equipment?
Yes, you must have a pair of hand wraps and also a pair of bag gloves. Which are available from your Instructor, it takes a while to learn how to wrap your hands but once you've learned the skill they protect your wrists, while the knuckles are protected with with padded bag gloves
Do I have to be fit to join?
No, however you will be surprised how your fitness levels will drastically improve with the type of training you are going to receive. We have several schools in the area, so you can train 5 nights a week if you wish.
Can I compete in full contact Kickboxing?
Yes, you can we hold regular Kickboxing tournaments, mainly semi-contact bouts. However, if you wish to experience the Adrenaline rush of competing in front of packed venues in the ring, then we can provide you with the opportunity of doing so. Several of our fighters have emerged through the ranks to appear in their first full contact fight.
