No, you don’t have to be physically fit to start training with us.
If you’re unfit to start with, you’ll get fitter the more you turn up.
We cover a huge variety of things in class, which can seem daunting at first!
We cover striking (punches, kicks, elbows, knees), grappling, throwing, traditional and improvised weapons.
We do train with a lot of traditional weapons that you’re not likely to encounter today, but the things you learn from using them are still relevant.
