Not everybody has a martial artist within them, but unless you give a free class a go, you might not ever know if you do.

So many people have been inspired to get involved in the martial arts by Bruce Lee or latterly, Cobra Kai and the like. There is something appealing about learning cool moves, enabling you to unleash your inner martial artist. 

Everybody at KB Fitness shares a healthy addiction to feeling the KB high. If you're looking for a new way to work out, training in the martial arts is a great option.

Kelly Bunyan, our Chief Instructor, writes a different lesson plan every week, to feed our members' addiction; the lessons are never predictable nor repetitive.

When our members are asked why they are so dedicated to training, they find that the answer is not so easily conveyed to those who have not yet tried a martial arts class. Loved ones are supportive, but only training peers who have also been bitten by the bug truly 'get' why they are so passionate about the martial artists.

Kelly Fiestas Navas, a Purple Belt, confirms this: 

'Most people think it’s the same as going to a gym. Friends have even invited me to go to their gyms. I have tried it, but it was never a satisfying experience. There’s no sense of achievement and progress when training at a gym. I know some people train for fitness, but although that is a great benefit of training, it was never one of my reasons. There’s nothing like the experience of setting a goal and working hard to achieve it, and the exhilaration when you do achieve it. That kind of feeling is amazing. I love that I can share all that with my training peers and that we celebrate each other’s achievements.'

When you are truly hooked, training in the martial arts becomes a way of life, due to the fact that it changes every aspect of your life for the better.  Offering much more than just punches and kicks, the martial arts boost confidence and self-esteem, whilst getting you to a whole new level of fitness.

Training in a gym will certainly get you fit, but it will not provide you with the same satisfaction and fire. Our school is so welcoming; the sense of camaraderie between members is palpable.

By training in the martial arts, you will see changes that will last for a lifetime. Keen to unleash your inner martial artist? Book your trial class today to get started.




Martial arts training has many different aspects, and different methods of delivering the traditional teachings that are passed down from master to student. Of these aspects, one of the most popular amongst KB members is sparring, which is fighting in a controlled manner. Sparring entails kicking, punching and blocking work with a partner, whilst wearing protective equipment.




Martial arts training requires focus, resilience, discipline and patience. Progression takes time, and can at times be challenging. In a world where negative thoughts may be the norm, where it may be easier to give up than persevere, KB Fitness’ martial arts classes London teach KB members to keep fighting and that, with practise, there is nothing they can’t master.




Inspired by one of our YouTube videos, KB members shared what they have gained from their KB Fitness training by completing the sentence “KB has made me…” in the school’s WhatsApp group.



Our members say in this video, “KB has made me … fitter, healthier, energised, stronger, happier, flexible, thinking positive …” There are so many more benefits offered by our Kickboxing, Kung Fu and Self Defence classes. Lisa even says our school has made her believe in herself. Considering our members are reaping all these rewards, would you like to benefit from our martial arts classes too?
