Kickboxing and Muay Thai is an effective martial art which compliments almost every other martial art – you could say it is the foundation of stand-up fighting. Our training rooms are especially designed with thick padded floors, numerous punching bags, a boxing ring and various striking pads.
Billy Manne and Bob Jones were the first people to introduce kickboxing training to the Australian public. Billy Manne knows many Thai Masters and tours every year in order to learn the latest techniques from the Muay Thai masters.
Over the years many students have achieved exceptional kickboxing accolades – some even world champion status – and many of the fighters’ photos and trophies can be seen at the gym. Many of the trainers who run local fighting gyms around Frankston, Chelsea Heights, Somerville and Carrum Downs and who teach kickboxing today learned the basics originally from Billy Manne. The roots of kickboxing in Australia comes largely from Billy Manne.
All of our kickboxing trainers have had fighting experience – something you cannot teach. And high level fighters are on site if you ever want to progress into competition kickboxing.
We split our classes into fighters and general training areas. If you wish to sport train and lightly spar then we can accommodate. We will not push you into a situation you are not comfortable with and many mature-aged kickboxing students (some who used to fight even) are able to continue training because of this reason. However, if you want to test yourself at kickboxing – you will have all the tools available at your disposal. Including two time world champion Luke Vanderpool, Ex Pro fighter Paul Weaver and long time hard-hitting veteran Lorenzo Mossi.
Kickboxing is a contact sport, and all forms of protection such as mouth guards and proper boxing gloves/shin-pads are required for training. If you are wanting to perform general training then the mouth guards are extra insurance.
