“Kickboxing is a brilliant way to get active and fit, kids especially will benefit from the discipline and new-found confidence. ” - Sensei Roger
Answers to common questions:
Kickboxing, as the name suggests, is a martial art that incorporates punches and kicks taken from a number of different fighting systems from around the world. Coming to prominence in the early 1970's, Kickboxing is now recognised as a fighting style in its own right.
At KR Kickboxing, we teach a ten belt grading syllabus which will take you to black belt in four to four and half years. If you have no desire to become a black belt, but simply wish to become fitter, stronger, more flexible and learn some effective self-defence you are still welcome to train with us.
Classes are varied and consist of learning techniques, pad and partner work, sparring and self-defence as well as general fitness. While we do teach a full-contact version of kickboxing, students are NOT obliged to take part in sparring classes if they do not wish to.
KR Kickboxing is based in Letchworth and we welcome new students at all times. There is no need to pre-book your first FREE class, please just turn up and join in! All classes take place at: Norton Parish Centre (behind St Georges Church) Common View Letchworth Herts SG6 1DA

Training Fees Fees are collected monthly in advance and payable by direct debit. After your first FREE class, you should bring your first month's fees with you to your next session, train for a month and then set up the direct debit and look to ordering your uniform and arranging your licence and insurance. The training fees vary depending on how many sessions per week you wish to attend. Please note that family discounts are available. If training just once a week, the fee is £29 per month. If training more than once a week, the fee is £45 per month. Gradings take place three times a year and cost £22 per student. Sparring Equipment You will eventually require full protective sparring equipment which we will provide for you. The total cost of this equipment is approximately £90. While we will allow students to bring their own equipment to class, it MUST meet certain safety requirements. If you would prefer to do this, please ask us to check that your equipment meets those standards before using it in class. Other Costs As mentioned above, you will require a uniform which consists of trousers and t-shirt; the cost of this is £30. You will also need a licence and suitable training insurance; this is an annual cost and is currently £25.
