Our Frequently Asked Questions

Need to know if I'll get fit

Yes, you will get fit from our program and through our training, provided you train regularly and train hard. When training at Meiji Kickboxing and undergoing our program, it is essential to push yourself to your limits. More than anything, however, you will have fun with our training program, while acquiring life skills like being able to defend yourself. And you get fitness as an automatic bonus.

Need to know if I'll get hurt

Martial Arts is known to be a contact sport, so health and safety at the dojo are particularly important to us. Our policy is to give every member a sense of safety and security. We provide an environment for students to work out and develop their martial arts in a safe and controlled environment. The Meiji team are world- class, full-time professionals who are fully insured, licensed, DBS- checked and qualified in first aid. Our instructors deliver a diverse experience full of fun, under control, where no one is harmed. Meiji Kickboxing is for everyone, at all levels, age, and fitness.

Need to know what's expected of me / What I should bring to my first free-trial class

When coming to your first free-trial class, it is important that you bring:

• Loose Clothing – so you can kick, punch, and move around in the class (the dojo will provide boots and gloves for your first session)

• A bottle of water and a towel

Children under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian for their first session.
