Outdoor classes and temporary venue
We've been loving the classes outdoor during the past several weeks.
We hope to continue the weekly Saturday outdoor class as long as the weather permits.
For the colder months I am hoping to source a temporary venue until we are able to return to our normal venues.
I've recorded various video tutorials and I'm just creating a members area to host them. These will be available to all direct debit members.
If you do not pay by direct debit, I can help you get set-up so you can access the tutorials.
I'll also be running a live class every Saturday - free for direct debit members. £5 pay as you go members. £10 for everyone else.
Update coming soon!
Please contact me if you have any questions 0121 285 1182.
Christmas Opening Hours
The last class of 2019 is on Saturday 21st December.
The first class of 2020 will be on Saturday 4th January,
Wishing you a very merry Christmas.
Starting back date after summer break
Hope you've had a great summer break! Classes start back on Wednesday 4th September at 4.30pm at Fitness First. I can't wait to get started again.
Closed 27th May 2019
Monday bank holiday 27th May 2019, class is closed. Open again for the rest of the week. Thanks Andy.
Saturday Class 18th May 2019
The venue on Saturday has been booked out for the day. I offered to move the class for the day to my studio in Digbeth but general feedback was that it's a bit out of the way so the classes on 18th May will be cancelled.
Don't forget you have the option of attending the Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday class to make uo for Saturday being closed.
Sorry for any inconvenience.
Brand new beginners classes
Starting from March 24th new beginners classes just outside Birmingham City Centre.

Mixed Martial Arts for self-defence

Important Pricing update
It is always my aim to make training affordable to as many people as possible. With that being said, costs outside of my control have significantly increased - Uniforms, equipment, insurance and especially my room hire. In an attempt to keep things as reasonably priced as possible, I have a new pricing structure effective from March 2019.
All members will be encouraged to pay monthly...
Either by cash at the start of each month or by direct debit (no contracts, just 30-day notice).
Paying monthly will be the cheapest option and 'prices per class' will remain the same for monthly memberships.
I also believe monthly membership will encourage students to attend regularly, thus encouraging discipline.
If you feel unable to commit to monthly payments, prices for single classes will now be £8.50 per class.
I still believe KA is the best value for money in Birmingham. Thank you for your continued support.
Grading Sunday 17th February
Grading will be held on Sunday 17th Feb 12.00 - 13.00.
Venue: Fitness First.
You'll be invited back at 13.00 for a presentation, which will last approximately 20 minutes.
Please note that if your son or daughter is not invited to grade, it doesn't necessarily mean they've done anything wrong.
Full uniform, including belt, is compulsory on grading day. Students without full uniform will, unfortunately, be unable to grade.
Any misbehaviour or inappropriate behaviour on grading day will result in an instant fail.
