ARD Martial Arts Academy (Alfie Davis Kickboxing) opened on November 1st 2017 in Putney, London.
Head instructor Alfie has a wealth of Martial Arts experience and has dedicated his life to the Fighting Arts. He is a current Professional Kick boxer and Mixed Martial Artist signed to Bellator MMA who has a World title in K1 Kickboxing and Two World titles in the sport of MMA. Alfie also won Silver medals in the WAKO World and WAKO European Kickboxing Championships and is a Ten Time British Kickboxing Champion.
Sensei Alfie started coaching in 2006 and has since taught classes for many other Kickboxing and MMA gyms in and around London including London Shoot Fighters, Richmond Fitness club, and Enfield Kickboxing Academy. His infectious enthusiasm and constant encouragement is why his classes are so popular and why he is such a sought after Instructor. A unique understanding of each individual’s requirements enables him to get the very best from each student. He also uses the skills he gained from gaining a BSc in Sports Science and a Level 3 Personal Training award to aid in his teaching.
Kickboxing is an interactive fighting sport that uses traditional boxing techniques along with a variety of kicks, knees and elbows. We use a variety of teaching methods that make our classes fun and challenging to all, each student is treated as an individual and trained accordingly.
There’s a 10 belt grading system from beginner to 1st Dan black belt which will take on average 5 years to complete. Although this seems like a long time, there is a great deal of knowledge, experience and fitness to gain, which unfortunately doesn’t happen over night.
To compliment our Kickboxing skills the syllabus has a strong self defence content. This will ensure you give yourself the best possible chance should you ever need to defend yourself.
All of our Professional Instructors are all insured, first aid qualified and DBS checked.
