Don’t miss tonight’s boxing class at 6pm. We’re revising last week’s angled defensive and offensive footwork and combos, with some additional combinations and setups added to the mix. Repetition is absolute key to pulling any of this off in real time so don’t miss it and stick around for sparring after class.

Next Wednesday is the first class of the latest Beginner’s Course. This month’s one has been a load of fun and finishing up tomorrow. So if you know anyone who is keen to give martial arts a go but sitting on the sidelines get them to contact us and we’ll get them started.

See you on the mat.

Hi guys..Thanks for a great class last night smashed it!…but lets cut to the chase you know my injuries have deteriorated quite dramatically..ive done as much as i can for as long as i can but its time for a change …i have to reasses a number of things …personally if i keep going the way im going my hip wont hold up so ive got to make some changes to my training routine and delete a bunch of excersises …ill replace them with things that challenge me but wont make matters  worse field of choice is narrowing in one sense but its forcing me to get creative ..but that is my lot at at the moment …for the time being i wont be streaming in the morning but will be streaming more often in the evening …this means i can tap into the talent we have on our mat and simply do a better job of coaching …for the morning crew  if your unable to watch in the evening ..just catch up next morning ..keep shouting out so i know your there as that has meant a tremendous amount to me ..seeing as my time on the mat is limited ive come with a new format monday nights will be foundation skills and drills  plus wooden dummy there pretty much always be striking and conditioning aspects to classes but that is the main theme that is the class you come to or view for those skills…tuesday night is true boxing  as usual …tonights theme …kill the body…Wed night forms.. forms.. forms plus trapping hands chi sau and clinch work i said there will be striking and conditioning in most if not all classes but now you can rotate your training nights to suit your needs ….Saturday is super revision if you missed out thats the one to get to …lunch time crew your on the same format wont miss a thing …thats it for now thanks for your patience and see you on the Mat…regards Sifu

Hi guys,

Don’t miss tonight’s Boxing Class at 6pm at the Redfern Academy. Tonight we will be working on the shoulder roll.

This Saturday is a ceremonial event consisting of Frances and Dave’s Red Stripe grading, the Academy’s 34th Birthday and Sifu’s 60th! The start time will be 10:30am. Friends and family are welcome. DO NOT MISS THIS! Afterwards is lunch upstairs at the Cauliflower Hotel.

***Parents please be advised that the kids kung fu class will start at 9:30am, there will be no 11am class as the ceremony will most certainly run over time.***

Crazy conditioning people, since Frances is grading Ross has put up his hand to take the Conditioning class which will start early at 8:30am. So get in early for a great workout.

See you on the mat.

Hi guys,

Great night last night, full house! Great efforts, well done.

Tonight in True Boxing class (at 6pm) we will cover executing the perfect hook punch, peeling the jab and using elbow guard to cut step. Plus, a new shadow box drill and partner drills for head movement. Don’t miss it.

While you’re in, grab one of the newspapers at reception. It’s not just any paper, it’s a celebration of March turning 10. Ha, March’s business Blow. turning 10. March coaches BJJ 6pm on Thursdays. In case you don’t know, he’s responsible for all of our t-shirts, logos and most of our posters (the really good ones). The newspaper that Blow. has produced doubles as a portfolio of some truly amazing work both March and his business partner have done over the years, mixed with some quite interesting articles.

So pick one up, have a geezer, even order some of the merch.

It’s not over,

See you on the mat.
