Frequently Asked Questions

If you have any concerns please read this collection of frequently asked questions before contacting us. If you are still unclear about something feel free to contact us.

I am a complete beginner, is it still OK to train in your class?

Yes, you are more than welcome to join, we are used to working with beginners. As we are in a beach location we do have beginners in most of our groups that stay at the hotel and just want to try the classes during their holiday. We understand that the first session can be a little daunting but we have a great team here and they will help you understand the basics and explain how the training works.

What level of fitness is required to train at your camp?

Our classes cater for all levels of fitness and the running is entirely optional. If you wanted to work on your fitness before you train with us it would be good to focus on running and skipping perhaps with some strength training such as push ups and sit ups.

What equipment do I need for the training?

The essential items are hand wraps and boxing gloves as well as comfortable sports clothes. We train barefoot but if you intend to run before training, then you will need running shoes too. You can purchase any equipment or clothing from our onsite shop and we offer rental gloves and shin guards at 50B per session

Can I fight during my stay?

We have had a number of guests that have fought during their time with us and we are able to arrange and help prepare you for a fight but we do have a criteria to be able to fight locally. If you are interested in fighting then please just speak with one of the team and you will be assessed by the gym manager.
