Capoeira incorporates music, martial art, physical exercise, philosophy, body expression, and many other elements. It is an expression of freedom, an urban ritual and a philosophy of life containing music, self-defence, acrobatics, dance and social interaction. This is a truly unique and international class. Our instructor Gira has been taking classes here for over 3 years now and guarantees you something new, exciting and different.
If you want to learn practical, safe self defense that works for real situations, not just for sport fighting then Choi Kwang Do classes are a great place for you to start.
We operate our academy on a full time basis with classes over 7 days a week. Based at 16 Coombend, Radstock, BA3 3AJ, our main training area (Dojang) is fully matted with 40mm jigsaw mats with 2 areas marked out as competition arenas using a contrasting red on blue. We have studio mirrors and too many items of training equipment to mention although there are a large amount of pads/shields for striking, punch bags, grappling dummies, skipping ropes and various training and fitness tools.

I teach Chen-style Tai Chi Chuan. In my classes you'll get to relax and unwind while gently developing full-body strength, stability and flexibility. You'll also experience a different kind of meditation. I teach beginners to intermediate level students and I strive to make my classes accessible and beneficial to everyone, whatever their level of fitness or health.
