Teaching full-contact K1 style kicking boxing since 1976, we are a real gym for real people. If you have had enough of commercial gyms with their lightweight training and expensive contracts, then you have come to the right place. Training is fun but hard work with a focus on competition and conditioning.
We are open to everyone, male of female, expert or beginner. We can take you through our structured program which has produced numerous world champions over the years. We do not mix the level of our students. We offer three levels so you can train, spar and work with people of your own level.

Karate has its roots in the mid to late 19th century, encompassing many different styles, when master after master took an original style and converted it to new style with a new name. Popular styles of Karate included Kyokushin, Shotokan, Shukokai, Goju Ryu, Wado-Ryu, though most styles are actually derived from the Okinawan Islands and both Shotokan and Shorin Ryu (themselves derived from Chinese Martial arts). Kickboxing began its early days derived from Kyokushin, and the early founders were Tatsuo Yamada and Osamu Noguchi, who were interested in full contact Karate matches, which at the time was unheard of and frowned upon amongst the various Karate grandmasters. After early bouts became popular Kickboxing took off in Japan and by the early 1970's several events were on Japanese TV every week, with bouts in nearly every weight category.
