New Gym Build

Our gym is a community base which offers training and help to all. We have people training from all backgrounds from beginners to advanced, whether for self defence, fitness or to test themselves in competition; martial arts provides a great pathway for a healthy mind and body. Our club has run since 2000, previously a freestyle kickboxing club and has helped countless people over the years benefiting people with mental health issues, bullying, addictions, self confidence through promoting discipline, hard work and respect of others.

This year we were all hit hard by the pandemic which forced many business' to close. Unfortunately we fell through the gaps in Government assistance and we lost our club in Swinton as a result. Through a lot of hard work we have fortunately been able to find a new home. As they say every cloud has a silver lining and our new venue at 15 Hope Street, Salford is huge with great potential but does need a lot of work.

I've put everything I have and then some into securing the new place and we were about to open a month ago but were hit again with the 2nd lockdown and now Tier 3 regulations which really limits the number of people we can coach! I'm still working hard seven days and nights a week to get the new place ready but we really do need some help in order to get through this initial period so people have told me I should start this fundraising page!

If you have ever visited or trained with us over the years and think you can help us to help others in the area, please send anything you can. Our target is £5000 to finish off the building works/changing rooms/educational room etc. so if just 5000 of the people who've benefited from the gym send £1 we can do it! Thanks!
