Lesson information

All sessions consist of cardiovascular exercise which helps improve stamina and promotes a healthy heart and circulatory system. This is followed by stretching excersices that help keep you limber and flexible. The end part is the syllabus training and some sparring, depending on the class.

Bring water!
Some of our venues have water easily available within the hall being used, but some do not so it is highly recommended to bring water or a sports drink to keep hydrated throughout the class.
Sparring
Some of the classes involve sparring. This is highly controlled by the fully qualified instructor and is 'light contact' only.
More intense sparring is available for advanced students.
Safety
Safety of our students is a top priority to us.
We endeavour to look out for and deal with any problems students may be encountering.
To help limit injuries, sparring is only available to students who are members and are given permission from the instructor.
Any overly angressive or violent behavior is dealt with immediately as all lessons are focused on technique and form, and NOT to harm other students.
Always exercise safely
Listen to your body. You should be able to sense effort and perhaps even some discomfort, but never pain when training. Instructors are always on hand to help you with any injuries or discomforts you may have, and will attempt to work the lesson around your needs. If you are a beginner please inform the instructor of any injuries or problems you may have before the lesson begins.
