We work hard to ensure that our club helps to build self-esteem, determination, confidence, discipline and gives all students the opportunity to build their fitness in safe and controlled environment.
We bring kickboxing and fitness classes to the local village communities. All our classes are family friendly, fun and, most importantly, inclusive. Our youngest student was 3 when they joined us, with our eldest being into their 60’s. We work with several various disabilities and work with students, their families and their schools to tailor make our tutoring to suit all abilities. We work hard to ensure that all classes provide the chance for families to work together to build all of their skills, abilities and fitness level.
As a kickboxing club we keep our prices as low as we possibly can, to ensure it is available to all we offer discounts for student who pay for 4 weeks in advance. Unlike a lot of clubs we only charge a small amount for our grading’s. We do this because we strongly believe that working through the grades give students the drive and determination to succeed and are a visual representation of their hard work and achievements.
The first lesson is free and after that's it is £5 for children and £6 for adults.
At Somerset Kickboxing Academy we take a Zero Tolerance approach to all forms of bullying, it forms the basis of our club rules and Code of Conduct.
