I have never been in a place where the people were so caring. They have pushed me to a new fitness level and I plan to continue to challenge myself and increase my goals. I recommend to everyone I know.

Jacques Chomiak

Trained here and got up to 2nd degree black belt. Great instructors keep a whole class intense for people with different skill. Every instructor is very adept and knowlegable in forms and technique. Very friendly atmosphere and attending is worth it. Definitely London's best Martial Arts and cardio kickboxing studio!Jacques Chomiak

Louise Cottrell Cassar

We started karate because my son said Why play with action figures when I can be one?
It's been 2 years and we love it there. My son is a blue belt and my 5 year old daughter is in little dragons. I just joined and am loving the adult classes. I can't wait to start kickboxing!
A family that plays together stays together

Jennifer Watson

My niece and I did the kickboxing cardio class from 6-7pm and had an amazing workout. It was our fist time doing the class and the teacher Leah was great at explaining, Leah and the rest of the class made us feel welcome. We can't wait to join and come to more classes.
Thanks for a great experience.

Aristotle, an Ancient Greek Philosopher said, “Courage is the most important virtue because it guarantees all the others.” Without the courage to stand up to injustice, a person’s concern for fairness does little good to others.
