AUGUST 2023 UPDATE

We’ve got some updates for you on the goings on here at PCA!

REFER A FRIEND BONUS

Through the months of September and October were offering a free personal training session for any of our members that refer someone who signs up for a full membership. Referral is simple, just ask your referee to quote your name as the promo code when signing up, once successfully signed up we’ll then contact you to arrange your free personal training session.

MUAY THAI 4-WEEK SKILLS DEVELOPMENT COURSE

We’re introducing some short courses to develop skills at specific levels. These courses are free to book and for members only and limited in numbers so that we can focus on getting the very best results with close coaching and intense learning.

Each course will be specific in its nature of learning and content, be it the development of fundamentals, understanding scoring to enable fight strategy planning, or advanced sparring techniques.


Our first course kicks of on September 29th with Muay Thai Intermediate Skills Development; this course is limited to 14 people and runs for 4 weeks. We will be learning learning Muay Thai scoring, the different “styles of Muay Thai” and the techniques and strategy that define them.

Please only book these courses if you are confident you will be able to attend each session as each one will lead on from the last.

KIDS CLUB GRADING

October sees the next of our 2023 kids club grading planned for Sunday 15th October.

White: 12:30

Yellow: 13:00

Green: 14:15

These gradings are a great way for our juniors to set goals and measure their progression in our striking syllabus. Our syllabus covers not only major elements of Muay Thai but also boxing, K1 Kickboxing and self defence too.


We are licenced and registered with the British Martial Arts and Boxing Association (BMABA) and all successful grades are recorded for life on the BMABA database.

We’re currently working with the BMABA to have our syllabus formally recognised nationally and will be rolling out the gradings to our adult membership soon.

OUR PERSONAL TRAINERS

As you know we have great coaches here at PCA, but what you may not know is they all offer personal 1 to 1 and small group training!

If you want to take your development to the next level, or maybe tackle something you’ve been struggling with, or even just get a damn good beasting! why not book up a session?

Just get in touch with any of our coaches whom would be happy to help make you the very best version of yourself!
