Kennedy's mixed classes

Over many years of training and research Kennedys technical committee have developed what they believe to be some of the most effective fighting techniques and principals within a combat setting.

Incorporated within our core syllabus are techniques from Koryu Uchi Nadi Kenpo Jutsu. This comprehensive system was developed by World famous competitor, instructor and Author, Hanshi Patrick McCarthy (8th Dan). Included within this system is an extensive collection of impacting techniques (punching and kicking), grappling, throwing skills, locks, holds, immobilizations, takedowns and ground fighting. "THE COMPLETE SYSTEM", a way of training that covers all aspects of effective self-defense, physical training and mental well-being.

Kennedy's Beginners Classes

This class was introduced for those new to the martial arts or those who just wanted to get fit, have fun, learn some effective simple self-defence skills and meet some new friends along the way. A fairly relaxed class with an emphasis on basic stand-up striking skills, pad-work, defensive techniques and of course-lots of cardio.
