At class recently, our members were drilling 10 kicks to every call - that is a tremendous amounts of kicks in one session. Everybody's legs were feeling it afterwards!

When looking for a new way to get into shape, has kickboxing ever crossed your mind? Well, kicking is an excellent way to strengthen and tone your legs, glutes, core muscles at the same time as improving your balance and posture.

Adding to this, kicking, an integral part of training in the martial arts, increases your heart rate, so it’s a great workout - burning calories and increasing stamina.

What a result, when the whole body is getting a great workout, not to mention the mind. Most importantly, it’s fun.

There is nothing like a good kick drill to get the endorphins flowing and stress relieved. Many of our students will tell you that kicking is their favourite aspect of training and that progressing with their kicks is addictive.

Chris says of this week's lesson plan: "Wow, after all the years I've been training, class still pushes me to the max. My legs were on fire - in an exhilarating way. LOVE the way I feel when I'm kicking, completely in the moment and free of all that's been concerning me that day!"

We teach several kinds of kicks at KB classes. From the basic front kick, to a flash spinning diagonal hook kick; they all help you to unleash your inner martial artist.

Chief Instructor, Kelly Bunyan (KB), adds, "Yes, kicks are great for fitness. The movement is so unusual compared to our ordinary motor skills, that there is a tremendous sense of achievement when we flow in our training. It is truly freeing. As well as feeling great, learning how to kick is equally great for self-defence. The kicks we teach could be an effective way to keep an attacker away."
Whether you would like to start kicking for fitness, fun or self-defence, you will certainly be more energised. If you would like to kick yourself fit, come to our Kickboxing classes in London.




“We must strive for excellence!” are words that Chief Instructor Kelly Bunyan periodically roars at the front of her dojo. Considering that excellence refers to the quality of being outstanding or extremely good, that is a bold, rallying statement to make.




Lineage is often referenced in the martial arts. Some would go so far as to say that a school which fails to reference their lineage lacks credibility. Kelly Bunyan, KB Fitness’ Chief Instructor, is not inclined to believe that as she always says: “The quality of instruction reigns supreme.”




Gradings engender an effluence of emotions and gratitude. It is during a grading at KB Fitness that the spiritual KB connection is most palpable. Aside from the final calls of each grading level, a traditional silence encapsulates the emotion brewing within.



Many of our members have been with us for almost 2 decades. Some members explain why training in the martial arts at KB Fitness is so good for you. They confirm that their confidence, fitness, body shape, stamina and flexibility have improved. Adam particularly believes he’s sleeping better as a direct result of Kickboxing, as well as feeling boosted.
