Welcome to Kijo Elite Kickboxing! We are a friendly but hard-working club, inclusive and welcoming to all and with a wealth of experience. We are Jo and Helen and we are both 4th dan Black Belts. Jo is the current WOMMA World Silver medalist in the Ladies Light Contact Black Belt division; won in Cardiff in June 2015. In 2014, she won the CMAA Ladies Full Contact British title. Helen holds a high grade in Freestyle Martial Arts. Helens passion is teaching, achieving her level 3 teaching assistant she brings her work with the schools into our childrens classes and ties the teaching of key skills and fun.
We meet a few times each week so there should be a class that fits in with your lifestyle, commitments and work. Don't be put off by the word 'kickboxing'. Whilst we do offer sparring, you can of course engage at any level you wish and develop your ability at a pace that suits you. Kickboxing can serve as a foundation on which to build confidence, self-defence skills and strength. Our classes feature a blend of cardio exercises and pad-training and you will typically pair-up with other members of similar ability, all under the careful eye of Jo and Helen.
Take a look at our recent posts, articles and frequently asked questions (FAQ's) and if you would like to come and have a look before you try then you are very welcome but please contact us using the online form to let us know you are coming along. We teach ages from 6 years and up so it may be that it is your child who you wish to encourage so of course, please bring them along.
If you want to give it a go, just wear a t-shirt, a pair of shorts (or jogging bottoms) and a bottle of water as you will need it! We can supply gloves and pads while you give it a go.
We look forward to seeing you soon at Kijo 🙂
