Beginners Course April 2012

The next CARISMA beginners course, will start on Tuesday 17 April 2012 to run for 4 consecutive Tuesday and Thursday classes (e.g. 17, 19, 24, 26).  We recently enjoyed several busy beginners’ courses (see picture) and we usually have Tues and Thurs classes (our busiest ones) with many people training, between 30 and 40 individuals.

So if you would like to join (or you know somebody who would like to) please do it on the 17 April.

Please notice: you must join the beginners’ course just if you are a total beginnner. Any previous experience in striking martial arts (kickboxing, muai thai, karate, tae kwon do, kung fu, etc…) is appreciated and will allow you to join without without going through the beginners’ course. Please get in touch with us if in doubt.

If you’d like to check our prices please look at this page.

There is no need for booking for beginners: please just turn up at 6pm at Kelsey Kerridge.

I was proud of the final result although the Oxford athletes performed well and in this occasion demonstrated a distinct improvement of their technique pushing our athletes into some seriously tough fights.

It was a pleasure finishing the day in a very friendly way with the whole Oxford team and good part of our fighters at a local bar for some well deserved beers.

More details, videos, pictures and so on will follow in the next few days.
