Have you ever dreamed of becoming a champion? Have you got what it takes to train like an athlete?
This is THE kickboxing experience, allowing both men and women with little or no kickboxing experience, to push through physical and mental boundaries allowing you to achieve more than you ever thought possible. This is your chance to step out of your comfort zone and into the ring with friends, family, and colleagues cheering you on.
Participants undertake 12 week’s extensive training prior to stepping into the ring, to which each bout will consist of 3 x 1.5min rounds with a 1min rest in between. You will train with our elite coaches who will closely monitor your development throughout your 12 weeks to ensure you are matched fairly with another opponent. As most of the participants will have little or no kickboxing experience, except for the odd kickboxing class with their local gym, you will be matched based on a similar weight and skill level.
The ultimate finale will then showcase you in the ring, entering your own personalized theme song, being surrounded by friends, family, and colleagues, as our MC resonates your name around the crowd.

It’s interesting writing this as I do so with pride and pain. Pain because nothing worth doing in life comes without hard work, sweat and tears. Pride because I’ve gone from a size 40 to a 32 in 3 and a half years of kickboxing.
My journey started the year my grandmother passed away. Losing her was difficult for me and the only way I could deal with it was through bad habits; drinking, smoking, eating whatever I wanted. I walked into AKA a month after she passed completely randomly.
Since then, I’ve fought, I’ve been allowed to coach and corner fighters, and I’ve lost over 25kg. I am by no means an overly talented kickboxer, but I have a heart and battle scars. Heart to push me, drive me forward and keep my training regardless of life’s setbacks, and scars to remind me where and who I would have been having I not laced up the gloves, bit down on my mouth guard and kept swinging.
