KiXtreme Martial Arts is a freestyle kickboxing system. It is a high energy Martial Arts system that incorporates the traditional aspects of Martial Arts, with fun and fitness. We are a Professionally run Family Martial Arts School in Gloucester, with over 20 years of knowledge. The core Martial Art we teach is Sport Kickboxing (a semi-contact system), this is an excellent Martial Arts system that has been around for many many years, it incorporates the aspects of a traditional martial arts class but at a high tempo that is great fun and will get you to hit high levels of fitness……..
Throughout the course you will cover many things such as basic and advanced techniques, pad work, self defence including “real self defence” techniques, fitness and much much more. As a Gloucester Martial Arts School. Kixtreme also offers traditional Wado Ryu Karate, so if you decide, you could potentially earn two black belts, we also offer semi-contact sparring and KmaX performance Martial Arts plus much more. You will have the option to grade every three months, so you will be able to go from white belt to black belt and beyond, we run our Black belt gradings once a year in December which is always followed by our presentation evening and disco.

Remi & Claire Ashton
My name is Remi Ashton and I am the Chief Instructor and founder of KiXtreme Martial Arts. I would like to tell you a little bit about myself, I started Martial Arts when I was 10, the reason being as a child I enjoyed watching all types of Martial Arts on the TV especially Bruce Lee. But it was bullying that turned me towards Martial Arts I decided enough was enough, I can honestly say I have never looked back. I earned my Black Belt when I was 15 and was one of the first students to achieve a brown/black belt and 1st dan Black Belt in the same year, I have since gone on to achieve a Fourth Dan in two styles Wado-Ryu Karate and Sport Kickboxing receiving a distinction pass on each grade. Over the years I have been fortunate to train in many different styles with many great instructors and some of the best martial artists from around the world. I competed from the age of 12 and won many titles along the way including a European title and finally the World Championships in 2002. I have taught professionally for over 10 years, including teaching at many Primary and Secondary schools throughout Gloucester and Cheltenham. Anyway back to KiXtreme, back in September 2011 I started KiXtreme with my wife Claire and it is going from strength to strength. It really is a great place to train with a great atmosphere and fantastic students. I am looking forward to teaching you and sharing my knowledge of Martial Arts with you.See you in class soon………….
