I joined Close Combat around 5 months ago and I’ve learnt so much already. Dave is an amazing instructor! he is very professional, caring and always making you feel comfortable in everything we learn. He always spends time alone with each student to perfect the skills learned and are always happy to answer questions or give advice in or outside of training.  It’s a great class with some amazing students we all help and encourage each other with the new skills we are taught. We always have a good laugh and learn all the skills in a slow, well-taught manner.  I’d recommend everyone giving martial arts classes a try. For anyone that struggles with low self-confidence it really does give your confidence a boost with a great sense of achievement!. Plus the first session is free so you have nothing to lose!  The lessons are always challenging but extremely fun and a great work out. With a good warm-up, boxing, kickboxing, grappling it’s a really good mix.  I’ve enjoyed close combat so much so that I’ve just started doing two nights per week.
