  • Progressive Fighting Arts – In Studio

    WHAT IS P.F.A ABOUT

    Progressive Fighting Arts started in Bristol in the 70′s by master Aung to teach street defence. Training was done in secret in underpasses, car-parks and in function rooms of backstreet pubs which introduced the term urban training. Raw and very real, the techniques were tried and tested, along with disarming guns,edged weapons, machetes, bottles and multiple attacks.

    The group remained small and obtaining membership was almost impossible. Master Aung readily accepted experts from other disciplines and learnt many techniques from South East Asia , Russia and America which made this street defence system very effective. Master Aung still maintained the underground status and would only teach a handful of students. Due to high demand Master Aung has opened up his school to the general public so some techniques and concepts have never been seen or taught outside of his school.

    WHY TRAIN WITH P.F.A 

    Progressive Fighting Arts is a non competitive reality based ‘no frills no nonsense’ martial arts. The techniques have been refined to a point of simplicity.

    You wont be standing in lines punching for hours on end.

    You can be any age, body size and at any fitness level.

    We will get you to where you want to be. Progressive Fighting arts will aim to grow fitness abilities along with strength, skills and confidence.

    Master Aung will have an introductory one to one session where he will he will assess you and develop a personal training plan to do at home along with any dietary and lifestyle changes if needed.

    You are also given a 3 monthly progress report.

    We encourage and train wheelchair users and people with other disabilities,Progressive Fighting Arts also run special courses for people with sight impairment.

    Master Aung still holds true to the urban training tradition of training outdoors as much as possible.

  • SPIN Class – Studio

    SPIN Class – Studio

    COMING SOON

    SPIN Class with BIG H

    Bristol Sports Centre SPIN Classes with Big H in our Studio every Monday, Wednesday and Friday.

    You MUST book to get involved, please use the following link to secure your spot: https://secure.ashbournemanagement.co.uk/booking/default.aspx?fn=GRUJ4

    SPIN/Spinning is a specific format of indoor cycling. Spinning is a cardio (aerobic) workout set to music and our SPIN classes are led by Big H.

    Classes are 30 minutes long.

    Spinning is great for people who want a motivating workout that they can control at their own pace. Even if you’re not into choreography-based fitness classes, you can still enjoy Spin classes because it involves neither rhythm nor complex moves. It’s low-impact, so it’s very suitable for people who want to balance out higher-impact exercises (like running) or for people who have some joint problems.

    What to wear: Workout clothes (but no long/baggy pants, because those can get caught in the pedals/wheels) and flat-soled workout shoes are a must. If you have them, padded cycling shorts will increase your comfort. Cycling shorts and shoes are not necessary, especially not for beginners.

    What to bring: At least one water bottle (trust us, you’ll need it!) and a towel for all that sweat.

    Tips: If you’re new, show up early! Let the instructor know that you’re new (and whether you have any conditions that might affect your ability to take part in the class), and ask H to help you set up your bike properly. The main thing we emphasize to our students is to monitor your intensity level and work at your own pace. Every person in a Spin class is at a different level of fitness, and everyone had to start at square one.

    For more info, feel free to give Big  a call on 07796572028
