TKO Elite Testimonials
10 weeks ago i weighed in at 93 kg ive sorted out my diet and trained as hard as i can im now weighing 81kg so happy days, fittest ive ever been thanks to all the instructors and all the great people i train with at tko
11 years ago I was searching for a kickboxing club for my sons to join, I took them along to TKO at Maidstone for an introduction class, they loved it and have been there ever since, both achieving their junior black belts by the ages of 11 years old. It made me feel that I wanted to have a go myself every time I took them, but felt that with my shift work and busy home life it would not be possible. After about a year of taking my boys twice a week I decided to join the club myself and have never looked back.
I train every day that I am able which can be from 3 to 5 times a week, and now that my son George is in the fight squad I train more, usually once or twice on a weekend at Medway TKO. I have worked my way through all of the grades and achieved my 1st Dan Black belt in November 2007 through hard work and dedication and continue training hard with the hope of achieving my 2nd Dan in the near future.
I have been an instructor for over 4 years now teaching cadets twice a week which are 11 to 16 year olds and also regularly take both adults and junior classes. During my time I have attended many meetings and seminars and constantly training and learning.
I and my two sons George and Harry are very dedicated and committed members of TKO and feel it is a very important part of our lives.
My son is aged 9 and started training at TKO two years ago. Back then he wouldn’t look anyone straight in the eye and had been lacking in confidence ever since he started at school. Since he’s been at TKO he’s come on in leaps and bounds and his confidence has really come on. He mixes with other children so much better now and his school work has improved a lot, especially over the past year. He loves his Kickboxing and is now an Orange Belt but seeing the way he handles himself now is the real achievement and I would like to thank all his Instructors at TKO
I’ve only been training for 6 months and I guess I’m too old now to be fighting anyone now, but the training is great and my fitness is really coming on. When I started in the White Collar Boxing class I hadn’t done anything since I left school back in 1992 and everytime I looked at doing something I went to one of the fitness gyms and got bored almost straight away. At TKO I’m doing Boxing training which is great as I’d always loved the sport, its brilliant for getting fit. I’ve lost nearly 8 kilos in weight since I started and I’m not feeling tired like I always use to before I started and I can kkeep up with my kids now when we’re playing football as well. Everyone’s very friendly and I couldn’t recommend it highly enough
I’ve been training at TKO Medway since August 2010 and I can honestly say nearly a year on I’m loving it! I’ve tried various hobbies through my 37 years and this fits the bill just great. I’ve never been in greater shape than i am now, and only wish I took up Kickboxing years ago. The people at TKO are great too, not only are the trainers great they make it fun. I’m on my Yellow belt now and have been sparring for around 5 months every Friday of which through the help of the trainers and the other TKO members, has helped me gain a ‘win’ on my first competition at their last Light Continuous event, Battle of Kent 10. I’m really looking forward to the Battle of Kent 11 now and have even entered into the Super 8 contest. What is also good about TKO is you get to train alongside the TKO full contact fight squad and they too, help you up your game giving you tips whilst training and sparing with them. Basically this is a great club, friendly and professional and they are really dedicated to ensure all members are the best of the best. You will certainly get a great workout each session and shed some pounds if you needed to!
‘I’ve only been for about 3 lessons but already I feel as if I’ve been here longer. It’s an amazing environment and a friendly atmosphere too. No lesson is the same something different every time and never gets boring. Most definitely pushed to your limits each and every lesson to reach your full potential. Trainers ensure everyone works together at some stage to ensure better group efforts and no awkwardness.’
‘Enjoyed the gym and sessions from the off! Always pushed to the limit and you’re never left feeling like you haven’t achieved something! Trainers focus on every member instead of their main fighters like most other gyms do and newcomers are always made to feel welcome! Highly recommend’
