DO I HAVE TO TAKE BELTS?
You are not obliged to take any Kickboxing belts. The vast majority of KB Members grade, although some do refrain. The KB teaching team will be behind you, whatever your motivation for training. After a few weeks, you might realise that you would like to experience the wondrous grading high.
WHAT'S THE ADDITIONAL JOINING FEE FOR?
This is a combined KB Membership and Licence fee (for insurance purposes). This is renewed on an annual basis (£47 including VAT). For the first 6 weeks, you pay £27, the remaining £20 is paid in week 7, if you decide to continue.
I'D LIKE TO TRAIN TWICE A WEEK, CAN I?
This is possible. In our current special offer, you get 2 classes a week for the price of 1. From week 7 onwards, our Unlimited Scheme means that you pay for 2 classes per week, but you have access to many more; you can do as many classes as humanly possible. KB Fitness owner, Kelly Bunyan, doesn't want the price to be a barrier for her most addicted students, hence throwing in all the other classes for free (up to 9 depending on your level).
WILL I GET HURT?
Accidents can happen with Martial Arts training, as with any sport. Although, due to extra care being taken, not one of our students has been seriously injured in our classes. No contact is permitted until all protective gear is worn, and even then it is light and super controlled.
WHAT EQUIPMENT DO I NEED TO BUY?
You're not obliged to buy anything. Focus mitts are provided, so you can strike an inanimate object. You could invest in some hand wraps and gloves to help protect your joints when striking but you don't have to. If you love it as much as all of our members, you might decide that you'd like to start sparring. You'd then need to get some kit, but you can cross that bridge when you get to it, nothing is needed until then.
WHAT SHALL I WEAR?
To avoid you slipping in your own sweat, please cover up with jogging bottoms and a vest or T-shirt. So no cropped tops or shorts. If ever you want to, you can invest in the school’s uniform, but there’s no pressure to do that. We wear special KB martial arts shoes. Again, you don't have to get them, you can train bare foot, or wear trainers if your foot is injured.
I'M REALLY UNFIT, OVERWEIGHT & UNCOORDINATED, WILL I BE ABLE TO DO THIS?
The classes are there to help you get fit and, if desired, to lose weight. Co-ordination will improve with practice. The instructors are very encouraging and understanding, so you would never be pushed to extreme limits, nor made to feel uncomfortable. It is important you take the classes at your own pace.
I AM NOT A BEGINNER, CAN I STILL SIGN UP
Of course, we have many classes that you could slot into; our lessons cater to beginners, all the way through to black belts.
CAN I PRACTISE KUNG FU CLASSES TOO?
Yes, join our unlimited scheme and you could be learning both Kickboxing and Kung Fu. Visit WWW.KBKUNGFU.CO.UK for more information.
If you still have unanswered questions, please e-mail us and we will respond as soon as possible. We hope to hear from you soon.
