Wolfpack Martial Arts recently returned from the White Tiger Challenge held in Knock, Ireland.

We came away with 12 golds, 6 silvers and 11 bronze! Congratulations to all the competitors and we can’t wait for the next one.

Below is a video created by Jessica Smith, one of our instructors at Wolfpack, which we think has captured the essence of what it means to compete and travel as one of our team.

We hope you enjoy.

On the 15th of May, Wolfpack Martial Art’s coaches Kevin and Natasha Baldwin were flown out to Atlantic City, USA. Natasha was to take part in the prestigious Ameri-kick International competition after a hard six week training camp. She  prepared meticulously for this event and it definitely paid off!

Natasha performed excellently, coming away with 6 gold medals in:

  • WAKO -65kg Point Fighting
  • WAKO -65kg Light Contact
  • NASKA team event winner
  • NASKA Point Fighting
  • NASKA Middle Weight Grand Champion
  • NASKA Overall Grand Champion

She fought over three days, and on the third day competed on the night show, in a special WAKO Open Weight gala where she only just missed out on a gold by one point in the last minute.

 

We congratulate Natasha for her tremendous achievements, and would like to thank Natasha’s sponsors: TOPTEN (Owner Peter Kruckenhauser pictured with Natasha, below) and club sponsor CVS Recovery for their continued support.

On the 4th of May, Wolfpack Martial Arts coaches (Natasha and Kevin Baldwin) presented sponsorship money to fighter Jennifer Lauder.  

Jennifer is a valued member of the squad who had been on a great winning streak this year, already picking up medals both domestically and internationally with the Wolfpack Fight Team, such as gold at the Golden Glove event in Italy and gold at the WAKO GB Nationals.  

Under the watchful eye of her club coach, Dave Parkinson of Iron Fist Academy, Jennifer has qualified to represent team England at this years WKC World Championships in Niagara. 

We look forward in helping her prepare for the event and are happy we can do our little bit; world championship trips don’t come cheap! We wish her the best of luck, and it has been a pleasure to be apart of her journey so far.

On the 20th of April Wolfpack Martial Arts are hosting a WAKO GB kickboxing referee course. This qualification allows individuals to build experience and referee at subsequent WAKO tournaments. The course itself will be taken by WAKO GB Chief Referee Peter Markland, as a ref he has travelled the world and his reputation proceeds him. His delivery promises to be very entertaining yet informative!

It is a great opportunity that we are glad to be a part of, and we hope to see as many of our students, friends and family at this course to be a part of our kickboxing team. We would like to remind our senior students that a referee course IS required before any black-belt grading.

Places are £25 per person, and the qualification only needs renewed after two years. We can’t wait to get involved!

As another month passes, March certainly was a special one and for a change we are not talking about tournament success! Of course that itself hasn’t changed with great successes both domestically and internationally.

In this post however we would like to welcome our newest twenty three members to Wolfpack’s ranks, across all the different classes and membership strands!

To highlight a few, our Lil Dragon programme is doing very well with lots of new, bubbly faces joining in every Saturday morning – so much so we launched a Thursday class at 5pm. In fact, the Saturday class at 10am is so close to being fully booked until some of those students move up into the Wolfcubs programme.

Our other programmes are filling up too, with new members in Wolfcubs (seven to eight years) and Juniors (nine to thirteen years). Our Thursday night adult kickboxing class sees over twenty students on the mats, pushing their martial arts skills and fitness to the max. It’s always a sweaty one!

Tuesday night brings our kickboxing circuits, where there is a great atmosphere and ethos. This allows new members to build their knowledge of our martial arts syllabus for their gradings and build their strength and endurance.

In all of our classes, we make sure that you are always learning and growing. Kickboxing brings many benefits: self-confidence, discipline, motivation, fitness and learning a new skill to name a few. This means that we are always striving to bring the best out of everyone training with us.

So, for those who have just joined the Wolfpack Martial Arts family, we say hello and we can’t wait to see you all in your next classes!

Remember, if you have friends or family who want to join in, remember the easiest way to book in is through the “Contact” tab on this website.



Hello everyone,

Below is a video showcasing some of the students and training we do here at Wolfpack Martial Arts. This was made at one of our Open Squad Training sessions of the year – featuring our kickboxing coaches, Kevin and Natasha Baldwin, shot by one of our very own instructors, Jessica Smith.

We hope everyone enjoys this video and comes along for the next one!

Don’t forget to share!
