Rank: 2nd Dan
Why do I love kickboxing?
I love kickboxing because it’s pushed me to do things I never would have done and to discover things about myself that I didn’t know were in me.
I joined a long time ago with my wife for something to do to keep fit together over the summer. Could barely throw a punch and wasn’t the most confident of people. Fast forward a few sweaty years and I’m the fittest I’ve ever been, a qualified 2nd Dan black belt, instructing classes and competing in international level competitions.
If someone had told me in my first class that this is where it would have taken me I’d never have believed them. There is no fitness like fighting fitness and there is nothing as rewarding as testing yourself, pushing yourself and being tested and pushed to be better than yesterday, everyday!
Why should you join Dragon Kickboxing?
I could tell you why I think you should join Dragon Kickboxing but if you come along and give it a go, you’ll be able to answer that for yourself pretty quickly.
The first thing you’ll learn is that it’s a club totally devoid of ego and without cliques and divides, where everyone wants everyone to be their best and to enjoy their training, and achieve their goals, whatever they may be, because what makes it such a fantastic club for all of us.
Richard instils with every student, and in every class, an attitude and a club culture of supporting each other and being supported. Everyone is welcome and everyone who genuinely wants to do well, does! We make great fighters because we make a great team.
For a group of genuinely very talented fighters, I’ve never met such an out and out lovely group of people, and it’d be really cool to hear you say the same sometime soon!
