A system of self defence that is both easy to learn and that does not require years of practice or masses of muscle to gain proficiency.
To join BAKM you must be a minimum of 14 years old for adult classes.
As a potential member of our academy, the first class you must attend is a compulsory trial session costing just £20 payable online (or £30 if you would rather pay on the day).
After we receive your online payment you will then be emailed a receipt with a unique reference number plus further information in regards to the trial session.
If you cannot print off the receipt you will need to make a note of the reference number and bring this to your trial session to show proof of payment.

BAKM ensures that all classes & courses are conducted in a safe & secure environment, under qualified supervision, using instructors that are fully covered with public liability & personal indemnity insurance.
However, although not a legal requirement, in order to protect students against accidental injury from, or to, other students, BAKM recommends insurance through the British Combat Association should they feel they want to be covered in the unlikely event that this could occur.
If you wish to take this insurance please ask in class for details.

In the unlikely event of class cancellation due to circumstances such as an instructor being injured or taken ill you may train at any one of our other weekly classes in order to make up for your lost session.
