Kickboxing for beginners

Recommended Posts

--Trotterete--

I was in the exact same position as you a couple of weeks ago! I'd never done it before and i was going by myself...which i actually thought was part of the fun lol.

Firstly, I think you should come to the mixed classes! I've been paired with guys before and it's more difficult as they are stronger but you improve more as well. Also, in the mixed classes i would say there is an equal number of boys and girls (roughly) each session!

There's plenty of people who are either brand new or have only been doing it for a short amount of time so don't worry.

P.s. see ya soon!!!

dont be too unsure, youre not going to get thrown in at the depe end

best thing to do is introduce yourself to Farhad and say your new kinda like Sarahbabe did and he will look after you well

hes good at that , dead patient with new starters which is why AFK is so successful in everything from bringing confidence into timid new beginers and getting people out of their shells, to the fully comprehensive grading syllabus and even to the ring (for the nutters who actually want to fight! granted most people arent really arsed about all that crazy stuff:P LOL ! )

 

Naah seriously youll be ok

 

if you have any doubts ring Farhad on 07775- 914155

Yes I did check it out - went last night to the 7.30pm class at Broomgrove Road, and it was brilliant!!

Really enjoyed it - everyone was friendly and there was a good atmosphere - and I didnt feel at all intimidated.

I'll def be going again!! I cant make it this Thurs or next Tues - but I'll be there next Thurs!!

 

Got a couple of bruises but it was well worth it!!

 

:)
