When it comes to stress busting, one particular sport comes to mind – combining martial arts techniques and heart-pumping cardio, kickboxing is a fun and appropriate way to let off steam. The high-energy workout is guaranteed to get those endorphins pumping while burning calories and fat and increasing mental and physical strength.
For lucky north Londoners, with a well-established dojo at the Henrietta Barnett School in Hampstead Garden Suburb and a new dojo opening in St. John’s Wood early next year, there is nowhere better to train than Meiji Kickboxing. Fostering an atmosphere that is anything but intimidating, Denise Bailey, a World and European 7th Dan Champion, and her team of black-belt Senseis, offer a safe introduction to Martial Arts to all ages and abilities.
