I've been training at the gym for nearly 1.5 years and I still look forward to going to class! Everyone is very welcoming and helpful which creates a great environment to learn and push yourself! Alex is an awesome instructor, very encouraging and knowledgeable.
You can learn all aspects of the Doce Pares syllabus which primarily includes weapons but also empty hand stand up fighting and ground work, so classes are varied. Alex also encourages anyone who wants to compete in competitions to do so, so that practical application of this martial art can be tested.
Highly recommend giving it a go!
