Adult training sessions

So it’s been a while since we’ve remembered to take any pictures of the adult training sessions.

Tricks & Flips at Area 51 Academy!

Tricking is a combination of martial arts with gymnastic, free running and break dancing where the student can learn to jump, spin, flip and kick – and then to combo the moves to make something really cool!

We have beginner classes which are open to anyone aged 7 years and above:

  • Tuesdays 4:30-5:30pm
  • Saturdays 10:30-11:30am
Some of our fantastic students captured by wonderful photographers Aili Art Photography & Illusion Photography.

The benefits include building confidence and self-esteem, improving physical fitness and strength, meeting new friends, being creative, developing new skills and having lots of fun! There are opportunities to progress to a competitive level if you want to, or just come and enjoy the training 🙂

Well done to everyone who took part in the taster session! We weren’t too red faced at this point 🙂

We had loads of fun kicking butt on the focus mitts, becoming “rock, paper, scissor” champions, busting out plenty of squats and then shaking our stuff in Area 51’s first ever Zumba session! We are pleased to say that a regular Zumba class will now be starting next Saturday 16th March 9:00-9:45am open to all! £4 each, get in touch for more information 🙂
