Fitness With Purpose

What makes Kickboxing at Rising Spirit Academy in Oxford the best choice?

Our Kickboxing is taught by a Master of Kickboxing whose training background is of outstanding pedigree. He has finely tuned his programme over several decades, so you will directly benefit from his vast experience.

What really sets us apart from others is that our Kickboxing programme is syllabus-based, ensuring a real sense of progression as we develop your skills. Therefore you will always be moving forward with fresh material in our Academy - you won't feel stagnant or get bored here.

Why is Kickboxing at Rising Spirit Academy in Oxford better than going to the gym?

Both workouts have their benefits, however our Martial Arts courses offer a holistic approach, combining physical fitness, mental discipline and well-being, plus of course countless self-defence skills. This is fitness with real purpose!

We will help you to:

  • Increase your confidence and raise your self-esteem.
  • Improve your stamina, strength, coordination and flexibility.
  • Work on your mental focus and self-control.
  • Make friends in a positive and supportive environment.
  • Be part of an Academy that has a strong sense of community and great camaraderie amongst its students.
  • Motivate you by celebrating your achievements with professionally organised graduation ceremonies.

Which courses do you offer?

We offer a variety of courses suitable for all ages and levels of ability, whatever your personal challenges. If you haven’t exercised for a while it’s not a problem, as we can help! From beginner courses to specialised training, we really do have something for everyone.

How much are your classes?

We offer great value here. Pricing varies based on course length and membership level, which is something we will work out after your free, no-obligation trial. We will always try to tailor your training to your specific needs and aspirations. A good guide is around the £5-6 per lesson mark, making us very affordable. If you compare our prices with gym memberships, you can see that you get so much more for your money here. Contact us for more details and to arrange your free trial.

What will my FREE trial look like?

We fully understand it can feel daunting coming to a Martial Arts Academy for the first time. We pride ourselves on our student care, so relax in the knowledge that you will be well looked after. First, we will provide you with a video to make finding us really easy.

You will be warmly welcomed and settled into our New Starter area, where you can tell us about your goals, of any challenges you're facing, or any physical limitations. We will, of course, accommodate these and offer you alternative exercises during the class should you need them.

Master Williams will then give you and any other new starters a short tour of the Academy and a brief introduction to Kickboxing. There is also somewhere to get changed should you need to, although it’s best to arrive in your exercise clothes if possible, just to save time.

You will be in a beginner class with other new students. No-one in this class has been with us for any longer than just a few months. When it’s time to begin, you will have a light warm-up before learning some core hand and foot techniques in our Chief Instructor’s fun and engaging style. For your safety on your first session you will be learning techniques solely guided by the Chief Instructor rather than working with other students.

We aim to make your experience with us really fun and give you a taste of how our classes will benefit you. Master Williams will catch up with you at the end of the class to see whether it was the correct fit for you. If you’re in need of a bit more, or you already have some Martial Arts experience, we can accommodate that too.

How will I progress at Rising Spirit Academy?

We have a huge advantage by having a Master of Kickboxing in charge. He will draw upon a massive amount of experience to make your classes both interesting and fun. Plus we have wonderful celebratory graduations to reward your achievements as you progress through the ranks.

Following each graduation, our syllabus rolls on to fresh, exciting material for you to learn so you will always be moving forward. If you’re after that Black Belt in the future, then let’s get started today! We have students achieving Black Belt year after year, and after that there’s still more to learn. Some of our students have been with us for over 10 years and they’re still learning new material.

Also, for the dedicated student, there are opportunities to attend exciting weapons seminars (think Nunchakus, Bokken (sword), Knife Defence etc). You can even train to become an instructor on one of our Apprenticeship programmes!

You are a 5-Star Centre of Excellence. What does that mean for me as a student?

We are the only CMAA accredited 5-Star Centre of Excellence in Oxford. This also puts us into the top 5% of clubs nationally. You will be looked after by a professionally trained, multi-skilled team of instructors. All are DBS checked and first aid trained. Our level of student care and professionalism is exceptional (see our 5* Google reviews).

We pride ourselves on our inclusive Academy being a place where everyone is given personal attention. We will support you in achieving your goals and reaching your potential. We even support our students outside of the Academy. We have a fantastic student community as a result and you will be made to feel very welcome.

Start your new journey today, join our student family and say YES to a new life!


Remember, if you are a parent you can train alongside your child!
