No! The classes are for all levels of fitness and experience. However, regular training with ECKA will improve your body shape, increase your muscle tone and strength. Students find they lose excess body fat after starting with ECKA. The workouts burn a very high amount of calories each session.
Wear something comfortable for exercise and getting sweaty in and bring a bottle of water. Trainers are permitted for the warm up but the rest of the class is done bare foot.
Martial arts has no age limit, it is a lifestyle. Your training is based on you and your goals. (The splits are not expected!) Children are accepted from age 6.
No two classes are the same! The class generally starts with a interval based warm up which will help develop your cardio fitness and build strength. The rest of the class will focus on technical line work, partner work, sparring and pad training.
No. Payment is done monthly and you are not tied into a contract. Your first lesson is free and you can pay as you go for a few weeks to decide if you wish to join up.
We practice contact in a very safe environment with full protective equipment, always at a level that is comfortable for the individual and their training needs. There are no egos in our dojo!
