I trained here in 2002 on tuesday and thursday nights, as part of my training before joining the Royal Marines. The instruction was very good and it gave me confidence, fitness and valuable skills that have served me well in my career.

Hi Anthony

We have a beginner's MMA class which is every Monday & Wednesday 6pm - 7:30pm. All you need to do is turn up 10 mins before the class, with your parent/guardian, as they will need to fill in a consent form for you. Your first class is free too. The beginner's MMA class will cover your basic wrestling and take-down defence as well as submission grappling.

You can also come along to our kickboxing classes, which are every Tuesday & Thursday 7pm - 8:30pm and our K1 class (ideal for the stand-up side of MMA) which is Friday 6:30pm - 8pm.

I hope this information helps and we see you training at Spartan soon.

Thanks

I think a lot of people are put off martial arts training because they expect martial arts gyms to be full of "meat-heads" with ego issues. For the most part, it's an inaccurate perception and certainly not true of Spartan so I thank you for your testimony.

To all music fans

One of our kickboxers, Ben is the lead singer of a great band called Rayne. They do gigs all over the place and are on at Paddywacks on 24/09/2008. It's a Wednesday night so none of my MMA students can go (you'd better all be in the gym!) ha ha.

They're also on at Castletown Club on Friday 31/10/2008. This doubles up as a Halloween party too, so lets make a night of it.

If you've never seen Rayne play before, you're going to be really impressed.

Howdy everyone

Adult kickboxing grading on tomorrow (Sunday 14/09/2008) starting at 11am

Just had a junior's grading with 19 students and it went really well. We haven't totted up the scores yet but Im confident that all of them passed.

Craig Carter will be fighting for an amateur Northern Area title in Hull on the 21/09/2008. If anyone wants tickets for that please come and see me this week.

Glen

So Robbie's been giving you some pearls of wisdom, eh? We'll see!!! I reckon this old dog might still be able to pull a cheeky little sweep out of the bag, ha ha!

What would i have to wear for my first time at kickboxing? Would tracksuit type shorts and a t-shirt be OK, or would i have to wear your gear? Might sound daft, but i'll appreciate a reply.

hi dave, the 1st clas u attend is free mate, then you can opt for a membership and buy tokens in bulk (not sure of the price on that one, will have to get back to you on it.) or it is five pounds a class for non members, then two pounds for open training o a sturday. with regards to kit, the spartan has everything you need to start so i wouldnt worry about it. just get urself down mate.
