What people say

"Me and my son have been training at the combat academy for over a year now and we can’t thank Mick and Tommy enough for all their hard work and support. With their help I managed to lose over 3 stone and improve my fitness dramatically, my son as achieved an orange belt in kickboxing and soon to try for his green belt, his fitness, and confidence levels grow every week, we would highly recommend this gym to anyone who wants to get fit, lose weight and have fun"

Neil BAV - Member (2017)

"The best gym around, the staff are amazing and all the members are really friendly. When I first came I didn't know what to expect and was really nervous but everyone was so welcoming and before I knew it I upped my membership to unlimited. Amazing for the kids too, as soon as my lad is old enough he will be joining the little ninjas class."

Terri Macfarlane - Member (2017)

"Myself and my two children have been members for the past 3 months, it’s been an excellent experience so far. It’s nerve-wracking at first but after the first session people start treating you like family and that’s what it is at the end of the day...a home away from home. The coaches are brilliant at what they do, they are understanding and the people are awesome. My children and I have grown so much in confidence starting here, would recommend it highly."

"Took my 2 grandchildren here as I got fed up of them on the Xbox. Mick trains them hard but it is so good to see the boys healthy and alert."
