Close Combat Martial Arts Free Trial Lesson

Close Combat Martial Arts have had some places open up in our Saturday kids class due to older students moving over to adult classes. Our Saturday class arrival time is 10:45am for an 11:00am start and finishes at 1:00pm.

We would like to form a waiting list of potential new white belts and then run an open evening/free trial lesson. The day date will be set once we have a list of potential students.

These places are open to children between the ages of 10 and 15. Our syllabus is quite complex for younger children and most teenagers move up to train with the adults at 14 for boys and up to 16 for girls based on size, strength and maturity.

If your child is keen and can commit to training once a week then we would like them to come and give our free trial lesson a go. Please contact us via Facebook or by phone to ask any questions, read a FAQ or simply fill out our Student Registration Forms for your child to be added to our waiting list.


Established in 2017, we are an emerging club with a unique, well-structured syllabus licensed by the British Martial Arts and Boxing Association (BMABA). We joined the BMABA in 2020, so while we are a small club, we have the support of a national governing body, and we meet their professional standards and requirements for membership. We are fully Insured (instructors and students) and our instructors and volunteers are Enhanced DBS Checked and Emergency First Aid trained.

Martial arts builds confidence and character, increases fitness, improves health and provides a fun, social environment for all people to find out what they are capable of. Gain a huge sense of achievement as you achieve your fitness goals, developing your skills through our grading system

Come and train with us in a friendly environment, and build on your skills in a comprehensive martial arts system. The club is run from my small gym in Pennington, Lymington, Hampshire, but we offer places to anyone living in and around the New Forest who can get to us. Get fit, get healthy and become the person you want to be.

In our MMA Syllabus, we practice striking taken from boxing and kickboxing, takedowns, level changes and defensive and submission grappling taken from wrestling and the Gracie Combatives BJJ syllabus. Training for every eventually, for making progress in combat sports, but also as a streetfight ready, self-defence system.

We offer a free trial lesson with no obligation to pay or stay and we welcome all levels, so come and give us a try…
