A New Class for 2017!

Lee has developed links with the Minnesota Kali Group in the USA led by Rick Faye, and here in the UK led by Brendan Westwood over a few years now, and is excited to launch MKG Presteigne in January 2017. This is a mixed martial art class for adults and is initially aimed at beginners starting Tuesday 10th January 7.30pm at the Memorial Hall. A 6 week beginners course for a special offer of £30 includes a T-shirt.

LTK adult students are welcome to attend in addition to their Karate class. So if you always wanted to learn martial arts but Karate didn't take your fancy, come along and try mixed martial arts. You do not need to be fit, or young, just the will to turn up! Click on the links in the description above for full details about this new class and MKG.

Womens Kickboxing

Ok ladies new year new you! If you are tired of the same old exercise class, want to learn something new which will develop your confidence, fitness and aid weight loss, come and give it a go!
