Throughout the lockdowns, KB Fitness held socials online, to maintain the familial bond that our London Kickboxing school is renowned for. Additionally, when permitted, a picnic or two was held outside.

The opportunity to gather in some form or another was much appreciated and kept us going. However, traditionally, our school has always gathered at the pub. Such pleasure has been denied for so long, that last night was a truly special experience.

Who knew that it was possible to take going to the pub and celebrating the school's success for granted!

Our martial arts school in London certainly had something to celebrate last night, as our KB Kung Fu members passed their new, shiny sashes.

Ahead of the events which were to unfold, there was much excitement in the school's WhatsApp group.

Along with words of encouragement for the Graders, many people shared their emotion. For example:

'So excited for tonight!!! Looking forward to channelling those grading nerves into the unique Grading dojo energy. Thank you for all the good wishes everyone,' wrote Frederike Beyer 

'Good luck to all the new Graders tonight. Really looking forward to supporting and cheering ya'll tonight and celebrating the new sashes at the pub,' added Sue Pindar

Training in Kickboxing classes, Self-Defence classes and Kung Fu classes at KB Fitness means much more to everybody than just a fun way to keep fit. The camaraderie is palpable in every situation, in the London kickboxing dojo, at the gradings and now we can all gather again, at the pub. 

The KB socials are a great way to get to know who the members are spending so many hours with of a week. It's where lifelong friendships are formed.

Kelly Fiestas Navas, the school's Administrator, said today:

"Everybody just loves kicking back after all their hard work and hanging out as a united team. We've not been able to relax in such a setting for so long, that I'd forgotten how great it feels! Thanks Kelly KB for providing the platform for us to connect in such a way."

Congratulations to everybody wearing their new sash today; you smashed it! Fancy finding a new place to get super fit, where you can meet great, supportive, new people too?




“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.



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?
