This is a great place to start your fitness journey. I gave this place a go as I didn't enjoy going to the gym with no goal or focus.
Being in TMA Combat you are learning skills of self-defence and discipline, so there are objectives to help you gauge your progress.
We focus on an array of martial arts from karate to boxing, from traditional to contemporary.
On top of that is the added calisthenics which uses your own body to push and motivate you.
The environment is warm and welcoming and the teacher and students are a community that helped me to achieve my fitness goals.
I will be going to many more classes!
Brilliant! I started training there a couple of months ago. I was a bit apprehensive starting something new but the instructor and the other members are very welcoming.
The instructor is excellent and works out the best way to teach each individual.
I would highly recommended for anyone to come and try it.
I have been going for months now and it has been the best thing for my mental and physical health.
Sadiq doesn't just offer training, he gives advice on nutrition/eating a cleaner diet, strengthening your mental state and fueling your own willpower.
He constantly thinks of ways for us to improve on our individual weaknesses, and each lesson is super fun and engaging. A must-try!
This is the best fitness class I have ever been to and the only one I have stuck to because Sadiq is really
invested in your results! I have now been going since January and I have gained muscle, strength, confidence and cardiovascular fitness.
Sadiq combines traditional martial arts techniques with boxing and teaches health and nutrition as well as self defense.
It really has changed my outlook and it is convenient because you can pay as you go or block in sessions at a time. The pad work is really fun and the ketonics killer but I am back every week ready for more! Definitely one to try out if you are considering!

This class is everything I needed. great cardio, self-defence and it's dynamic with a fun team - our trainer,
Sadiq, switches up the class every week so that it doesn't get monotonous. We do a mixture of technique, calisthenics and cardio,
to build muscle memory, strength and agility.
The great thing is Sadiq puts everything in to context with positivity and focus so you really try to put your all in to what you're doing. I couldn't recommend this class highly enough!

Sadiq is an incredible mentor and instructor. He has an uncanny ability to identify your weaknesses (be they physical or mental) and guide you to maximum progress. TMA teaches you to defend yourself, fight and lead a healthy life. The sessions are highly engaging, always different and always push you further. Wholeheartedly recommended.

Have been going to classes for a while now and it has single-handedly been the best class I've done. It's a really friendly, approachable environment that beginners can join from the offset and you always leave feeling like you've achieved something.
Sadiq is a brilliant trainer who uses his decades of experience to focus on your individual progress, giving you tailored feedback on how to improve. He encourages you to engage your mind in training as well as your body - I always look forward to class and feel great having completed it!
Following Sadiq's 42 day program I lost over 10kg in 6 weeks and am continuing to lose with the principles I've learned from it. No diet or other class has ever been as effective!

I joined TMA last month and at the time I had little motivation to be active and get fit.
To be honest I was stuck in a rut.
Since joining I have steadily progressed in terms of my flexibility and fitness, and I am learning all sorts of self defence techniques which makes the classes super interesting and keeps me coming back for more.
I'd recommend these classes to anyone who wants to boost their physical and mental wellbeing, or if you want to try your hand at martial arts without joining a class and bowing to a master.
These classes are casual, impactful and reasonably priced. I'll post another review about my results in a month or two.
Thanks to TMA Combat!!

Started training at TMA combat in January, I had zero martial arts training, I was overweight and very unfit.
My goals were to lose weight, get fit and learn some self defence.
I am now in my 6th week with TMA and I can say I seen a huge reduction in my weight (lost 3 inches off my waistline), drastic improvement in fitness and improved confidence.
Sadiq (trainer) is extremely knowledgeable, approachable, patient and supportive person who truly wants to improve people's well being.
I am learning combat styles and doing exercises which I couldn't have dreamt about doing 6 weeks ago.
Can't recommend it highly enough!! Thank you very much Sadiq.
