    These guys: http://zendokickboxing.rtrk.co.uk/ ?

    May I ask what your goals are in training with them? If they contain the word 'fighting' I would strongly suggest you go elsewhere, my old BJJ teacher used to share a room with them and they were singularly unimpressive. If you're in London I can recommend a few places.

    For good reason, I should think, for anyone who wants to fight—that’s clearly not what they teach.

    The question is, as PointyShinyBurn said, what are your goals? If your goal is simply to improve fitness and flexibility, and they have helped you improve fitness and flexibility, then good for you! Clearly, if so, your goals are being met.

    However, if your goal in pursuing something marketed as a martial art is to gain any kind of martial skill, i.e. fighting ability, then they are clearly unsuitable because as they advertise, and as the videos confirm, they don’t actually practice fighting, so naturally you won’t learn it.

    Hmm i see what you mean yes my goal at the start was to improve my flexability in my legs and to tone up at the top end.

    Plus to learn the different kicks and punches.

    But if you can suggest a few clubs that will allow me to fight then that be good for future referance.

    Cheers

    I don’t know the area, so I can’t make recommendation (paging PSB). I can help you by suggesting you watch this, however:
