We teach sport based Kickboxing with a self defence element. Ideal for those who want to have a good workout, keep fit and learn some useful skills.

We teach all ages and genders from 7 years upwards but we are not a fight club!

What is Kickboxing?

Kickboxing is a hybrid derived from Boxing and Martial Arts kicking.

In a typical Kickboxing class at Empire Martial Arts, participants will learn to use both the upper and lower body to punch, use kicking techniques, blocking, and combinations with punch bags, kick bags and free standing bags, known as BOBS, combined with partner work.

When performed as a fitness and weight loss program, Kickboxing can provide a full-body workout that can improve fitness, co-ordination, muscle toning, self confidence and weight loss.

In addition, regularly performing a Kickboxing exercise routine works all major muscle groups in a fun and energetic way and improves balance, coordination, flexibility and self-confidence.

Please get in touch to find out more about our Kickboxing classes. We also can cater for one-2-one sessions or if you can’t make one of our regular classes we may be able to run a one off class at a different time if enough people are able to join in.

Ladies Kickboxing classes

At our Ladies only class, the focus is on fitness, fat burning, and of course fun!

A one hour Kickboxing class can burn more calories than Zumba, Kettlebells or Spin! 

You’ll do similar exercises as our regular class, but with the focus on fitness. This means you’ll learn an effective method of self defence, whilst burning up those calories!

Empire Martial Arts Ladies Only Kickboxing classes are a non-contact Kickboxing fitness class that will improve your muscle tone, and sculpt your body and help with weight loss.

The classes are suitable for all ladies, age & ability.

Run by Martin Paradine, Empire Martial Arts Ladies Only Kickboxing programme is designed to help women learn the fundamentals that will improve fitness, self-confidence and personal safety.
