I attend the ladies kickboxing bootcamp, it is an open and friendly atmosphere and a fun way to keep fit. Each session is never the same with a variety of exercises to improve endurance and help build confidence. The trainers are both warming and motivating. I would definitely recommend this class to anyone looking to exercise in a safe and friendly environment. More...

Highly recommend Defense Lab Stafford for any beginner. Tried out a free taster session whilst in the area. Enjoyed it so much I did 6 more sessions over 8 days! Very welcoming, modern & professional yet also family friendly set up, and excellent teaching. Great for all round fitness too. Hopefully Defense Lab continues to expand to more places. More...

I have been going to the ladies extreme kickboxing Bootcamp for the last 5-6 months and I absolutely love it. I started going to vary my exercises from my typical weight training routines and have honestly noticed a massive difference physically and mentally. I can endure and push myself so much more than I ever could before! The classes are so intense, motivating and fun! I used to dread anything cardio based before but now I look forward to it. Couldn’t recommend more! More...

An excellent experience to undertake, I spent 10 years learning and teaching taekwondo then after starting Defence Lab with Paul Shears I realised it's not about kicking and punching and pretty patterns, it's about protecting your head and with simple shapes it's easy. Have been with them 2 years nearly now and have learn't so much, people think that age will stop you. Well I'm 51 and love it so take a plunge and give it a go. More...

Fab teachers, who are very patient and understanding with the younger children. My 6yr old son is very fidgety and loses interest very quickly with a lot of things. This group however, has kept his interest, while teaching him important life lessons, as well as the self defence training. He looks forward to coming to each session. (So much so, that he'll turn down party invites, just so he doesn't miss a training session). More...

Fantastic with my son who has Autism and struggle to settle and concentrate and needs short sentences to understand, I would say he is doing really well and they do take time and have patience to explain and encourage him giving him that motivation and confidence he needs. He loves coming to yours classes and was very surprised how settled and listened very quietly which normally hard for him. My little girl loves it too. Thanks guys More...

I attend the Ladies Kickboxing and Fitness Classes, it's the most fun I've had in ages at any fitness class. Everyone is really friendly and the instructors are warm, welcoming and really helpful. The classes are packed with lots of high intensity exercises aswell as a self defence element. For self confidence it's a great class to attend as people of all ages and abilities take part and enjoy it. More...

I would highly recommend Defence Lab. My 9 year old and 6 year old both attend and thoroughly enjoy themselves at the same time as learning the moves and practising the techniques. My daughter has gone from being very shy and not wanting me to leave her to running in the classroom without even saying a goodbye in a matter of weeks. Liam, Beth and Mark are fantastic and very down to earth and i couldnt wish for better instuctors to teach my children. Thanks for tiring them out More...

Can't recommend Defence Lab Worksop enough. The instructors are amazing, friendly and fab role models for my girls. They are both thriving and love going to the classes. They both look up to Beth especially and feel safe and included in the class. I'm happy to have found them a positive class to attend that gives them skills for life as well as exercise and a chance to make new friends. More...

I love these classes for my son. he is 4 and he does enjoy them. he gets a bit daft at times but he really enjoys it and has his 2 year old sister now doing 'jab, cross' we pay £40 a month for this class. Thursdays 4 to 7 year olds 5pm until 6pm (Every Thursday so no half term breaks which is perfect ) It's worth every penny. big shout-out to Chris, Paul, Rich, Marsh and Josh for training Tyler. Thank you for working with him and listening to the stories that he comes out with More...

I joined this class because I would feel very unsafe on nights out in the city. After my first class I just felt safer and more confident. Dan and his team are skilled at what they do and teach well too. Some how they manage to combine technique with a laugh as well. Absolutely recommend Defence Lab, Lincoln!!! Huge thanks to Dan and team. More...

I cannot recommend Defence Lab enough! I joined Dana's ladies class at the beginning of the year after never being a gym member or doing any physical exercise. .. I couldn't even do a sit up!!! Now, I can do sit ups, press ups, can touch my toes and feel so much more confident in myself! She is a great teacher and has really encouraged me to push myself more and more each week!!! More...

I’ve been attending this class since the beginning of April and I really would recommend it to anyone interested in self defence & fitness. Catering to different ability levels, there’s something for everyone at this class. The instructors & students are friendly and welcoming to new-comers, and there is a sense of camaraderie amongst the group. With classes in Bracknell, & Reading it’s really convenient to train. And with the first session free of charge it’s well worth coming along to check it out. More...

Q&A

I like the fact that people get what they want from our classes, it might be a police officer training as what we do makes sense to him and can help in situations, a mum and daughter who want to get fit and build confidence, they may feel vulnerable sometimes, and don't want to feel a target, when we get the feed back and they say they feel better it's great. Or someone who's shifted that stubborn weight but said they've enjoyed doing it, and learned self defence in the process and are still learning something that is valuable, going to the gym is not he only way to get toned.

I personally wanted to give back to people and my passion is martial arts, after working in many places I wanted to work for myself and have job satisfaction, seeing how you can change someone for the positive always made me feel good. So for me this is something that is very rewarding, and you make so many good friends from teaching martial arts

Well they should make there own mind up, but regardless of what you've tried before you should give Defence lab a try ! It's amazing, positive and does things a bit different, it gets you thinking again, we like to get people asking what if ? And enjoying the classes and achieving things that they may have never thought they would be doing or could do. So come along and give us a try.. Its all about you and your goals
