Positivity Protects the Heart

positivityObviously anyone can determine the direct relationship between an anxious attitude and cardiac health. According to researchers that conducted a study from Harvard, optimism has been found to reduce stress and heart disease, regardless of outside circumstances or statistical infringements. If positivity is a struggle for you, adopt this healthy mental exercise in your day: set a time each day and visualize success at a goal that has been tantalizingly out of reach. There’s no time like the present!

Children and Martial Arts – the benefits.

The benefits of Martial Arts training and the difference they can make to a childs life are huge. By starting young, children are equipped with invaluable skills that stay with them forever. From increased respect and self-discipline to improved confidence, fitness and listening skills, martial arts such as kickboxing can shape a child’s character and help them take life in their stride.


The Martial Arts Place holds regular kickboxing classes for children, with a specially structured syllabus that covers first-aid skills, stranger awareness and road safety. Our Junior Kickboxing Programme includes a fun grading system which encourages self-improvement and allows the students’ progress to be monitored carefully.

We run free trial classes for children at both of our full-time professional Dojos in Swiss Cottage and Stoke Newington. You can call or email to book a trial class now.

A Page turner

Congratulations to Michael ‘Venom’ Page who won a first round knock down of Ricky Rainey at Bellator MMA 120 on Saturday 17 May. Michael fought The Martial Arts Place’s very own Sensei Oliver in a light continuous final at the WAKO British Championships back in February 2009. Page says his entertaining style comes from his kickboxing point scoring background. Since competing in Mixed Martial Arts he is undefeated in 6 fights. We look forward to seeing more from him and bringing his impressive style of kickboxing to a bigger audience.
