Fitness & Conditioning
Martial arts are great for all-round fitness. Our classes incorporate a number of high intensity activities including sparring, kicking, striking, traditional forms and falling principles. Everyone can work to their own level so you don’t have to be a fitness fanatic to join in. For students keen to work out, we offer weekly fitness-specific classes during our regular lessons.
Many find benefit in martial arts training through the mental challenges and focus that comes with it. A bad day at the office, a busy day with the kids or a day full of revision and study can often feel over-whelming. Martial arts can serve as a great distraction from the stresses of daily life and an outlet for clearing your mind.
Martial Arts training is great for improving flexibility. Through a combination of different practices and stretching routines, you will be touching your toes in no time!
At Claygate Martial arts Centre we teach a comprehensive self defence system. The under Black Belt syllabus covers some two hundred techniques for a number of different ‘real life’ situations. A majority of the techniques concentrate on wrist locks and joint manipulation and they are designed for use by all ranges of people. Our Instructors enjoy spending one-to-one time with students to help them learn about the principles of applying techniques confidently.
