Mick if your carrying an illness I'd say get that sorted, or get the nod from your Doc before training.

Failing that be upfront with your coach about it.

Right thats out of the way.

No, your weight and general fitness won't matter a damn. My background is kickboxing and I was never as fit in my life, its fantastic for getting you in shape.

Martin Bannon and Dave Heffernan run Tallaght Martial Arts, supposed to be good club too. Google Kickboxing Ireland and there is a list of clubs on the site for your area...

womens only

gucciali


yeah thats the one alrighty, the road in behind the maxol petrol station on the ballymount rd. Loads of hitting pads and a bit of circuit training at the end, the women in it love it, and numbers are growing so its starting to look like a nice class now.

my numbers on the site if you need to ring me

thanks for the interest

paddy
