Mock Grading

On 9th July 2016 we`ll run a “Mock Grading”. This is an essential seminar in your preparation towards a successful grading and is open to any IKMF student. We would like to try a new set-up and your feedback about this would be much appreciated. What we`d like to test during the 3 hours of this event is this: you`ll be divided into groups according to the level you wish to go for. The first 1.5 hours we`ll “test” you. This means you`ll go through the official IKMF grading material as per the grading grading sheets. Then we`ll discuss every issue, question or concern. We believe that this way we can provide you the closest grading like atmosphere in order to train you not only technically but also mentally to achieve a successful pass.

Location: Theale Leisure Centre (located on the premises of Theale Green School)
Address: Church Street, Theale, RG7 5DA
Date and time: 09.07.2016. between 10:00 – 13:00

TNT Academy students: £30 (on the day payment: £40)
NON TNT Academy students: £40 (on the day payment: £50)
The extra £10 training fee or the full on-the day payment for NON TNT Academy students is payable to the instructor on the day in cash.

Dacayana Eskrima Open Workshop

As an open event we`d like to invite everyone to join and learn some new skills that may be useful one day.

Come and train with a highly respected martial artist

Marcie Harding

who is the European Director of Dacayana Eskrima and the highest level student (outside of the Philippines) of the founder GM Jun Dacayana.


Dacayana WorkshopEskrima, Arnis and (in the West) Kali are umbrella terms for the traditional martial arts of the Philippines that emphasize weapon-based fighting with sticks, knives and other bladed weapons, and various improvised weapons. It also includes hand-to-hand combat and weapon disarming techniques. Kali is a very sophisticated, highly refined old and indigenous art dating to prehistoric Philippines what`s been developed and practiced for centuries, although until lately, has hardly been known outside the country. We are very lucky that we could book some time in Marcie`s extremely busy diary for this event. This 3 hour long workshop will be run by Marcie and will focus on:

  • strikes,
  • blocks,
  • footwork,
  • stick against stick techniques,
  • stick and knife work,
  • disarms…

…just to mention a few topics.

The aim of the workshop is to teach you the basics of the art or if you`re already an FMA (Filippine Martial Art) student, to enhance your knowledge.

As an open event we`d like to invite everyone to join and learn some new skills that may be useful one day.

Time: 10:00-13:00
Location: Theale Green Leisure Centre
Address: Church St, Theale, RG7 5DA (entrance gates are diagonally opposite a pub called “The Volunteer”)

Oxford training is back!

New_Oxf_LocAfter a lot of searching, including the immense help of Max, finally we`ve found and secured a new location in Oxford. We`ll start in the hall of St. Francis Primary School on 2nd March 2016. The location offers ample free parking, excellent bus service from Oxford City Centre and it`s just off the Eastern By-Pass Road on the estate opposite the Mini Plant. The hall has enough internal height to accommodate our Kali and/or Kettlebell sessions as soon as I`m fully healed and have the green light to start training properly again.
For more information about the date, time, location or price please click here.
Till then come and see us at our adult and kids classes or book a private session to enhance your development (adults or kids all welcome!)

Training suspension in January 2016

After a long year and a lot of hard work it`s time for some relaxation so we`re taking two weeks off in December. The last training will be in Reading on 17th December 2015 and the first one in Bracknell on 4th January 2016 when we`d like to welcome you to join us in our constantly expanding world wide IKMF family.

We`d like to wish a great break to all of our existing and future students and their beloved ones!

Successful grading!

Matt_G1We are proud to announce that the last student grading in November 2015, Birmingham was a huge success again with 100% pass rate. The results show if you put the effort in, then the grading will be a piece of cake and more importantly in a real life situation the fight will be much shorter

A special congratulations to our Trainee Instructor Matt who passed his G1 test under the watchful eyes of Dave Stevens C.I.T. with over 95% pass rate.

Congartulations to you all who attended the graing, worked hard, fought even harder and made the club proud once again!
