Red Dragons Martial Arts
UPDATE: From the week beginning September 21st we will be back in all of our venues. During the summer months after the lockdown eased we were lucky enough to enjoy our classes in the local park. The weather was incredible (for most of the classes) and we didn't miss one class. Now in September wee are really excited to be moving back into our Covid decure venues with our new Covid policy in place to ensure the safety of all of our members. It has been wonderful to see everyone enjoying being back in the venues. We have tweaked the timetable and these changes mean that our more experienced Juniors will get some focued training in the areas they eed to develop.
The numbers in each class are restricted and if anybody is interested in signing up then please contact us and we can place you on to a waiting list.
We are a Bristol based Martial Arts school committed to bringing our members the absolute best in martial arts. We teach freestyle kickboxing and are a part of the WUMA. We currently have classes in Bishopston, Henleaze and Horfield.
