Kickboxing Classes

At Mantis Martial Arts we teach freestyle kickboxing with elements of Muay Thai.

 

Our syllabus features explosive kicks, powerful punches and close up elbow and knee work... supported by mindful teachings and challenge to encourage all our students to be the best they can be. At Mantis we focus on building both healthy bodies and healthy minds.

 

We are strictly no pressure and no bravado so everyone is focused solely on self-improvement. You’ll have great fun while gaining confidence and letting off steam.

Check out our classes below to find the perfect session for you...
