An update on classes, Thursday 1st March their will be no Martial Arts classes in Bere Alston at the Parish hall due to the hall being pre-booked. Friday 2nd March there will be no Kickboxing Classes at Tavistock Community College due to the fight day in Guilford, But due to the weather the College maybe closed and we may not be able to travel to Guilford.

There is no Tuesday Spirit Combat classes on a Tuesday at Bere Alston Primary School. This is due to Steve’s FA tutoring commitments but also Sensei Charlie’s college and work commitments means he can’t help cover classes in Steve’s absent.

We are working to find a new assistant instructor to help assist with Tuesday night classes. We have has 2 offers and are working with them to see if they would be a good fit to help.

Why you don’t need to get fit to start Martial Arts this January!

People often say to Martial Arts instructors, that I will start Martial Arts once I have got fit enough. Then we never see them, ever turn up to a class, partially because they don’t fully know what’s involved and how fit the need to be. But why do people feel they need to get fit first? When Martial Arts training can get you fit.

Martial Arts is widely accepted to have many benefits, one of them is to get fitter, as Martial Arts training involves lots of aerobic and anaerobic fitness and due to the repetitive nature of some of the drills it help tone the body up as well. As most Martial Arts sessions involve lots of short bursts of activity which help improve the fitness of the participant. It’s very easy to feel hotter and to sweat in a Martial Arts class for more than 20 minutes which is all that is needed to improve your fitness level.

As most Martial Art classes last 45-1.5 hours and sometimes longer it isn’t hard to see how it can rapidly change an individual’s fitness level. So next time you’re thinking about getting fit, why not join your local Martial Arts club and give it a try.

Why not attend one of the South West Kickboxing Academy and Martial Arts (SWKA). We have a class in Tavistock at the Community Sports Centre and we have more classes launching soon.
