Kickboxing Ireland prides itself on the quality of our organisation for a multitude of reasons. But don’t take our word for it here's what our members have to say.
Kickboxing changed my life. I was very nervous about going down to a club but it's the highlight of my week now.
You couldn't beat the craic. i don't do the combat stuff but love being in involved with the team. I;d recommend it to anyone. I'm hoping to get my ids involved when they're a bit older.
I've been doing kickboxing for years now. Couldn't recommend it highly enough. I;ve done lots of gym workouts and all that sort of stuff but nothing beats the buzz and craic of a kickboxing workout.
The kids love it. And you can see the real benefit it has on them as well with the discipline and stuff like that.
