Workout classes run Fridays at 6.30pm & Saturdays at 12.15pm

(A minimum grade of Yellow 1 is required to attend these classes).
Also, starting in September we will be introducing our new ‘Intensive’ programme allowing unlimited access to our workout and sparring classes. So if you’d like ramp up your fitness, develop your sparring or prepare for that big grading, then the ‘Intensive’ programme could be just what you’re looking for. Details are available from reception.
Finally we have also added some new kids classes. We have an additional 3 to 4′s class on Mondays at 3.15pm and a new 5 to 7′s class on Saturdays at 9am. Both these classes will begin when the new term starts on September 1st.
On Saturday 21st July, TMAP (The Martial Arts Place) were guests at the Benthal School Summer Fair in Stoke Newington.
It was a great day with lots of kids enjoying Martial Arts taster sessions with the TMAP instructors – Sensei’s William, Michael, Lina and Aaron.
Our Stoke Newington Dojo opens very soon in early July and we’re looking forward to starting classes and meeting lots of mini martial artists and future Black Belts!
The TMAP Stoke Newington Dojo will be offering kids classes for ages 3 to 4, 5 to 7, 8 to 10 and 11 to 14, as well as adult classes too of course!

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.
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.

Things are moving fast with the building work at our new (additional) Dojo in Stoke Newington N16.
We’ve gone from a complete shell, to a space that is rapidly taking shape! Changing rooms and offices are going in and the bare grey walls are being painted to transform the shell into a soon to be bright, welcoming Dojo.
Have a look at the photos below – the first set were from the space just one month ago and the next set shows how it looks this now.
As you can see, work is progressing quickly and a July opening is planned. You can check back here for more details regarding timetables, classes and an exact opening date in the next few weeks as the Dojo nears completion.
Exciting times, enjoy your weekend!
