  Testimonials


"Really great classes to attend. So friendly and welcoming, even for an overweight, middle-aged mother of 2! Mark will push you to your limits, but what's the point of training if you aren't going to push yourself. After just a few sessions, I feel fitter and more confident than I have in years. If you're on the fence about joining, just go for it - you won't be disappointed."

Sharon Witney


"If you want to learn essential self-defence skills, develop strength, persistence and willpower, Blaze Kick-Boxing is highly recommended. I joined the club in December 2017. Everyone was/is really welcoming and helpful, I enjoy every single session and feel great. My energy level is so much higher than ever before. I highly recommend the club. You have nothing to loose...just gain :) Join today ;)"

"Brilliant coaching! My child enjoys it a lot and I can see her confidence grow!"

Joanna Pawinska


"Really enjoy kick boxing with the kids, it’s improved everybody’s fitness and confidence and we are learning self defence too 😁 the kids love Mark (probably because he’s a big kid too 😂) and he’s great with them. If you’re thinking of giving it a go - do it! It’s a fantastic, friendly, supportive, family run club - everything you could want when learning a new skill 😁😁"

Sheena Vowles


"My son joined 4 weeks again and really loves it. He tells us what they have been doing and what he has learnt. They are very warm and welcoming, well run, well organised and just a great experience for children. It’s fun but to the point when it needs to be. He really can’t wait to go back. Thank you."

Paul Caddick


"Mark and Bryony are a fabulous couple who give their all, even when exhausted. They clearly love what they do and are a great inspiration to all those who are lucky enough to cross paths with them. Also a fabulous club. Thank you and keep doing what your doing xxx"

Andrea Andrew


"Mark makes you feel very welcome and is an excellent trainer. The rest of the group are very friendly as well. The warm-up sessions are intensive and the pad work / techniques are of a very high standard. Ideal for anyone looking to get into or continue with martial arts, especially with the very generous offer of a free trial for beginners and the benefits included in the joining fee. Recommended."

Julian Shaw


"It’s a brilliant session for all ages and all abilities. Mark makes it fun and entertaining! A very friendly, supportive group and great for health and fitness. Lost nearly two stone since I started."

Meg Matthews


"Great club! Mark and his instructors are very good at helping you achieve your fitness goals whatever they are. I've been going for just over a year at the taunton one. His clubs have a wide variety of students all aiming for their own achievements. It's a perfect school for any level of fitness!! And with your first month free, you can't loose anything by giving it a try."

Warren Renshaw


"Only just started, been 3 times and love it."

Gemma Herrington


"Amazing trainer, classes are very beginner friendly and fun. I really enjoy the classes and will continue coming. Even though i have had experience before I joined the club, the training i receive is enough to help me learn more and gain more knowledge for the sport."

Kieran Sussex


"My 5yr old son has had his first 2 sessions with Blaze Kick-Boxing and its been amazing. He was nervous for the first 5 mins, but the instructors are incredibly friendly and well organised, they had my boy running around doing all the exercises and got him motivated. I can't recommend these guys enough. At all ages. Thank you all."

Dan Lowman


"It's a great club run by fantastic instructors. My son loves coming twice a week. It's a great mix of fun and learning and would highly recommend this club to anybody."

"I have been training with Mark’s Kick-Boxing for just over a month now. Highly recommend the school. Extremely knowledgeable and approachable instructors; great variety of fitness, skill and technique workouts; great atmosphere and ethos; always positive and encouraging help and advice from the more advanced grade members. Looking forward to continuing to train with the school!"

"Both my 2 boys started this evening aged 6 and 7 they both loved it ,was a great atmosphere there, tempted to start myself"

Marc Keirle


"We have been going to the family class for 6 months. The instructors are really friendly and the fitness drills are done in such a way the kids think they are having fun rather than doing intervals. The lessons have really improved the fitness of the kids and their confidence. It's great that the parents can do the classes with the kids and progress together. Would highly recommend the classes."

Paul Hazeldine

"Very nice and very very good training :)"

"Very welcoming atmosphere."

Gary Pearce


"I have trained with Mark for 11 years and received my black belt 2011. Friendly, easy going people of all types and grades. Egos are left at the door and its hard work within. Try it! Blackbelt is in everbody's reach if that's what want, or just train to train but dont think about it, just do it."

Robert Payne


"Great kickboxing classes. The instructors are friendly and welcoming. The lessons are well structured & my kids enjoy going. Fab way to keep fit and learn self defence skills."

Claire Rose


"Both my children love going to kickboxing and all the coaches are really great! They have gained confidence and friendships not to mention both being really fit and strong. My son especially loves it when there is a double lesson and he can train with the adults!"

Vic Bimson


"Done a variety of martial arts before and Mark's Kick-Boxing is by far the moat accommodating and helpful classes i have been to. Even my children are enjoying from it and learning a great art!"

Rich Haines


"Mixed and varied classes, never monotonous, great instructors and members. Free first month and cheap thereafter. Lots of fun and also hard work, which is also surprisingly fun ;)"

Josh Calder


"'Words cannot express how proud I am of Daniel achieving his blue belt today. A huge thank you to the club for the last two and a half years and many more to come. Daniel has always been hot headed at times and still can be but, controls this so much better now. Kick-Boxing has given him an outlet for his day-to-day frustrations. He no longer loses his temper like he did before. Kickboxing doesn’t enhance anger, it reinvents it into mental strength and positive attitudes. He has grown stronger mentally, as well as physically. Highly recommend this club to anyone.'"
