5x world kickboxing champion Trevor 'The Chill' Ambrose (UK)

Trevor: "Dedicated and experienced"

There is a no better combination for a martial arts gym to run perfectly than Shaun and Nina, I have known them both for over 15 yrs and both have been awarded their black belts from me, Nina being the first girl...


...to have been awarded her black belt under Trevor Ambrose and Shaun being in the handful of men who have reached that level.


Both bring dedication and experience to the gym. Shaun a former British Champion with many fights behind him and Nina who has worked with many champions over the years as an instructor in one of the UK's top gyms, their knowledge of teaching and bringing the best out of their students is second to none, I wish them all the best.

Rebekah Holbrook (UK)

Rebekah: "Dedicated, excellent skilled instructors!"

I was privileged enough to have been under the instuction of nina and shaun for five years and in that time they were patient enough to teach me to become a lot better at kickboxing, for which I owe them a big thank you...


...Whether you want to just get fit, learn a new martial art, improve your sparring technique or even perhaps compete, they certainly are the people to teach you! They always made classes fun and gave me the motivation I needed to carry on. They are truly very dedicated, excellent skilled instructors!

Michelle Dower (UK)

Michelle: "So enjoyed her classes!"

Being one of the more mature and less fit attendees of Nina's ladies only classes, she somehow knew how far she could push me to get that extra couple of kicks, punches or push-ups. She certainly didn't let me get off lightly...


...I so enjoyed her classes, she never once made me feel inadequate or unable to participate. She always took time to give 1-1 tips on how to improve my style. As a result I achieved a fitness level and confidence not achieved before or since.

Ben Bignell (UK)

Ben: "Well respected kickboxing instructor"

I started kickboxing with Shaun in January 2009. I had no experience in any form of martial arts, Shaun was an excellent instructor who spent alot of time with his students, concentrating on every detail to ensure they got it right...

...He coached me from a total novice up to my green belt which was a massive achievement, his dedication and years of experienced really showed within the club and he was, and still is, a well respected kickboxing instructor.
