I have been training with EMK for approx 2 1/2 years now and my only regret is not doing it sooner! Great for people who may just want to get fit or for someone to get into competitive fighting - the choice is yours and there is never any pressure to do anything your not happy with. 100% happy and can't recommend Dan and Jo highly enough.
I joined east midlands kickboxing in may last year and everyday I'm glad I did. I'm stronger, fitter and more determined to push myself on in my training. The instructors are friendly and there's a great atmosphere. I've also made some really good new friends which is more than I hoped for. Well worth a go whether you're wanting to go all the way to black belt or just want a work out without the boredom of a treadmill.
I've been training with Dan and Jo Maguire for about 4 years now and I can't recommend them enough. Whether you want to get fit, build some confidence or become the next Bruce Lee, East Midlands Kickboxing is a great start. The classes are well organised and friendly and the support provided is excellent. Definitely get a thumbs up from me.
Classes are always varied....... You always get a great workout but you don't realise it cos you have so much fun. Instructors are really friendly but also knowledgeable so know how to get the best out of you. Great for an all over workout and very addictive :-).
I've been training at the Long Eaton Club with Dan and Adam for about a year now and have enjoyed every minute! Each lesson is different with a good variety of workout activities and kickboxing drills, so there's always something for everyone. The main appeal for me, is that you can take your kickboxing to whatever level that "you" feel comfortable with. You are never under any pressure to take part in sparring sessions or enter any competitions or grade even (unlike a lot of other clubs) It's your own personal journey. You can either come for fitness, for self defence or to become a championship fighter someday, the choice is yours. † My only regret is that I didn't join sooner. Come along to one of our sessions, I'm sure that you won't be disappointed!
I have tried other martial arts in the past and donít enjoy them, tried kickboxing and loved it. I train up four times a week and no two classes are ever the same. I would recommend East Midlands Kickboxing to anyone looking to learn a martial art.
I would highly recommend PKA to anybody looking to learn a martial art. I look forward to my sessions every week and there's a great sense of achievement as you progress and develop. The teachers are excellent and the best in the field. It's worth coming along for one session to try it out if you're curious- you may find it becomes the best part of your week too!
Great club, fabulous workouts consistently. Also great teachers, they are really helpful and make the whole experience even more pleasurable. The lessons are packed full of excersises so it really is value for money. The kids lesson from 7-8pm is more based around fun and challenges however the adults lesson is mostly based around technique, skill and exercise. Fantastic experience all round.
