New Year Fitness With Self Defence Classes

Posted: January 12, 2022

Hello and a Happy New Year from the team at Ellis Academy!

Did you manage to make any resolutions this January? For most people, the start of the year is a great time to set new goals and plan for the year ahead. More often than not, people usually include fitness goals in their new year resolutions as keeping fit is a priority for lots of people.

Although new year resolutions have a bit of a bad reputation as being short-lived (how many people roll their eyes when someone mentions going to the gym in the new year, only to be proven right when new gym-goers only last a couple of months?) but many people do make and stick to very sensible fitness goals for the year. This could be for weight loss, general fitness, or psychological well-being.


Christmas Greetings From Ellis Academy

Posted: December 21, 2021

Is it just us, or does it feel like Christmas has come around really fast? It’s nearly time for us to close our doors and let the team have a well-earned break but we will be back in the New Year with our exciting range of martial arts classes for kids and adults alike.

2021 – What A Year

We don’t want to sound too clichéd but we’re sure 2021 has been the same for many businesses – twists and turns, lots of uncertainty. We continued with our virtual classes in the earlier part of the year but decided to discontinue these just a month ago.


Staying Safe This Christmas

Posted: December 17, 2021

Christmas time means people are making merry all over the country and getting into the Christmas spirit. Unfortunately, the rise in people drinking can lead to boisterousness. This results in a rise in attacks and assaults.

If you're walking home or planning on visiting bars or pubs this Christmas, then you need to be able to protect yourself. This Ellis Academy blog is going to share with you some tips for staying safe this Christmas.

We Are Back To In-Person Classes

Posted: November 11, 2021

The coronavirus pandemic seems to be slowly but surely losing its grip on keeping us at home and virtually training. With the amazing work of the NHS and the vaccine rollout, what we knew as normal before seems to be coming slowly back.

Over the last few months, we have progressively introduced training back to normal, less virtual classes and more of a focus on in-person programs.

We have decided as a company and gym to STOP our virtual classes moving forward and focus purely on the sessions in our academy.
