“The perfect time is now!”, “Just start!”

How many times have you searched online for “Kickboxing classes near me”, found the KB Fitness website, browsed, hovered over the “join” button, but hesitated?

If you found this article in one of your searches, well, we’re here to tell you that you’re not alone. Many of our members did exactly the same as you.

You may think “But I’m not good at sports”, “I’m so uncoordinated”, or “I’m too shy to do it on my own.” Believe me, we’ve heard many different reasons over the years. And they are all valid, if you have never been to one of our KB Kickboxing London classes. But don’t let them be a barrier to you trying something new. You might just find it’s the best decision you ever made!

“It took me 6 months of looking at KB’s website before I decided to get in touch and book my first Kickboxing class,” said Kelly Fiestas. “I always thought that people would be looking at me and judging me. I was so surprised to find such a welcoming group of people! I regret not having

booked in sooner, but I am so glad I decided to go for it!”

It's common to worry that the other people in a class will be looking at you or judging you - and that may even be the case in other fitness spaces. However, at KB Fitness, everyone is very much focused on their own journey. There is no judgement, only smiles and encouragement. The only person paying close attention to you is your instructor, who is there to make sure you are learning, progressing and feeling fantastic at the end of every class.

Phoebe said: “I thought to myself ‘Life’s too short to be hesitating to do something you know is going to be good for you.’ So, I just turned up at KB Fitness one day to just do it, and here I am, still loving it, 7 years later! Best decision I ever made! And I'm sure lots of KBers can say the same!”

“I’ve been a KB member for 12 years and signing up is definitely still one of the best decisions I’ve made! You see, one month leads to two months, and then to years. I would never have thought I’d be able to progress as a martial artist (and my school PE teachers would be staggered), but KB helps us fly, believe in ourselves and love every class!” said Ruth.

Neil commented: “I definitely didn’t like PE at school, but once I discovered KB, I loved it.”

Many of our members, like Ruth and Neil, did not enjoy exercise when in school. By finding a sport that they are truly passionate about, in a fun and supportive environment, they were suddenly looking forward to working out, rather than dreading it.

One of the reasons KB members love coming back to KB Kickboxing classes every week for years, is that they can see their own progress, and that KB instructors genuinely care about their journey. These in turn nurture self-belief and confidence, becoming huge motivators.

There’s nothing you can’t achieve with commitment, self-belief and the right support. Dare to be amazing! Stop hoping, and just start.

“’Just start’ is such a good motivator to me. I sometimes overthink things and hesitate before going ahead - KB has taught me that I can just try, right now, and see what happens. If you wait for the 'perfect' time, you might wait forever! The perfect time is NOW,” said Jess.

All you need is to take the first step. KB instructors will be with you every step of the way to guide you and get you to where you want to be. The perfect time is now. Don’t hesitate, book your first KB Kickboxing London class today.




KB Fitness members who have achieved both the KB Kickboxing Black Belt and KB Kung Fu Black Sash are part of the ‘KB Elite Squad’. These dedicated students have achieved this excellent standard under the tutelage of Chief Instructor Kelly Bunyan (KB).




Chief Instructor Kelly Bunyan (KB) recently organised a KB Kickboxing White Belt Grading social like no other. Breaking away from tradition, KB members wore not only their new white belts, but every belt they had earned throughout their martial arts journey. This fun twist on the usual post-grading celebration meant members wearing up to seven different belts all at the same time – a very colourful display!




It’s often said that there is nothing so satisfying as aiming for a goal and achieving it. It has been an exciting few weeks at KB Fitness, as a group of beginner martial artists embarked on the final preparations to take their very first KB Kickboxing belt on Tuesday 12th March.
