giles richards junior martial arts instructor

Ages 7-11 will be pushed and worked hard in this class and will learn much more than just the art of kickboxing and K1.

Little Ninjas

This class is specifically designed for children aged 3 – 6 years, with no older children in the class so the instructor can spend time working with this age group. We love teaching this age group, the children are so much fun and come out with the funniest things!

The children will have a great time as well as learning many important life skills. The class is well structured and disciplined so they will soon fall into the routine and you should notice an improvement in your child’s behaviour.

We work hard to make sure the children are not just being good with us, but are working hard on being polite, confident and respectful to others at home too. The children will also learn great character, discipline and self-defence skills.

The classes are taught by Giles Richards, who has been voted UK instructor of the year 2009, 2010 and 2012 and is featured monthly in the UK’s largest martial arts magazine, Martial Arts Illustrated.

Class Timetable:

Tuesdays – 5pm – 5.45pm
Saturdays  – 9am – 9.45am

Juniors 7 – 11yrs

This class is designed specifically for youngsters aged 7 – 11 years. The children will be pushed and worked hard in this class and will learn much more than just the art of kickboxing and K1.

We work hand in hand with the children’s schools so that we are all reading from the same book.

We do not want the children to just train with us and then go home and start ‘playing up’, we want to help and get involved with them outside the class too. We encourage the children to set targets and goals; we in turn help them reach to reach those goals. We teach them important qualities such as respect, discipline, self-control, self-defence and confidence.

The classes are taught by Giles Richards, who has been voted UK instructor of the year 2009, 2010 and 2012 and is featured monthly in the UK’s largest martial arts magazine, Martial Arts Illustrated.

Ladies-Only Kickboxing

The Ladies-Only kickboxing classes are a great way to lose weight if you need to, and will offer a natural and sustainable route to maintaining your ideal weight. During the classes you learn to become more flexible and supple, plus you’ll naturally tone the bits you want to get into shape; thighs, bums, tums, chest etc.

We support the women in our classes with advice on sensible eating to allow you to gradually build up the stamina and strength of experienced students. The class is lead by experienced female instructors.

Sometimes in life we could all need a little extra self-confidence; getting a job, a date we want, speaking up when we know we should etc. – this is something that our Ladies-Only programme can give you!

Student Feedback

Empowered and confident are two words I would use to describe how I felt after my kickboxing session with Giles and his team. Giles is a talented trainer who pushed the group, I’m looking forward to more sessions where I can continue to build my confidence and skills. There were men and women in the session with me and it was great to see the men doing the same tasks, they were stronger and Giles not only took everything they gave but asked for more, I did my best to keep up with them! It was great for the mind, great for the body and really good fun. I would happily recommend Giles and his team, they are honest, approachable and very experienced.
