The key element of our martial art is our mantra “FIT FOR LIFE” as we want to make you fitter, stronger and more aware of your surroundings. Where children are concerned, we aim to add social responsibility, education and confidence as the self-defence element combines with all these attributes.
Xen-Do is different to other clubs, we don’t care about egos or the strength of a punch in the dojo, in building your fitness, your stamina, improving your confidence and developing excellent muscle tone we increase your adrenaline, wake your endorphins, and bring fun to your martial arts training. We want to equip you with techniques to use in self-defence, which is all about repetitive practice, which will come to the forefront should you be attacked. For those of you who wish to put your training into practice we have sparring classes but that extra step is your choice!
Gradings are of paramount importance because everybody wants to know what level they are at and, it is through the grading system that you can see your progression right up until the ultimate achievement of black belt and remember a black belt is a white belt that didn’t stop training!
We focus on fitness and technique, as we believe it’s not how much you do it’s how well you do it!
You will be training in a safe and professional environment with world class instructors in state-of-the-art centres. We want our students to be the best they can be physically and mentally through Xen-Do. The dojos have fantastic energy, positive vibe, and a great atmosphere.
Xen-Do kickboxing is highly effective because it is a system designed for self-defence that has been simplified to allow for busy lives. It has a carefully designed curriculum created by a Martial Arts master without losing its effectiveness, developing your kickboxing, self-defence techniques and giving you a full body workout.
We have developed a system with proven longevity and effectiveness, rather than stopping and starting at the gym. This is a system you will want to stick with and with us and our progressive Martial Arts teachings will keep your coming back for more.
Adult sessions are for one hour and can burn around 1,000 calories, making our schedules highly achievable and highly compatible with modern life where time is a bonus. This level of intensity means that an hour before work, at lunch or after work is enormously effective to relieve stress, regain focus and boost adrenaline! Choose from group classes, personal or private training sessions, which are individually tailored to you to help you achieve your goals.
Xen-Do kids have real fun while developing a ‘fit for life’ attitude towards everything they do – you’ll be amazed at what they can achieve. Of course, you expect us to help build self-discipline and develop self-confidence – helping your child to overcome shyness and insecurity.
However, the Xen-Do curriculum gives you more: it is designed to root your child in the real rather than the virtual world, interacting with others and sharing a sense of achievement that can inspire ambition and encourage young people to raise their sights regarding the life they want to achieve.
In addition to this Xen-Do integrates performance at home and school into the programme and parents are actively involved in the grading process. This ensures kids all round behaviour is recognised and rewarded.
TREMENDOUSLY FUN & SOCIABLE
