Kristiansand is considered the capital of Southern Norway and the heart of the region. It is the fifth largest city in Norway, with 92,000 inhabitants. While it can offer the variety of any big city, Kristiansand has also successfully preserved many of the special qualities of smaller towns. Kristiansand is a great place to come to all year round, but especially in the beginning of June.
In June it is spring time here, flowers starting to bloom, the trees are starting to get there green leaves, and the weather is getting warmer. If you are lucky you can wear shorts.

“BECAUSE OF STYLES PEOPLE ARE SEPARATED. RESEARCH YOUR OWN EXPERIENCE, ABSORB WHAT IS USEFUL, REJECT WHAT IS USELESS, ADD WHAT IS ESSENTIALLY YOUR OWN.” Bruce Lee
We always have an amazing instructor line up. When picking instructors we are very specific. We want knowledgeable down to earth instructors with great communication skills. Looking back we can see that instructors that have trained or mastered multiple martial arts have been the most popular, so many of our chosen instructors are well versed and open minded in multiple styles. This is good because we cater to participance from Karate, Taekwondo, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Japanese Ju-Jitsu, Kali, FMA etc.
So when setting up you schedule, or choosing what to train, do not focus to much on styles, focus on distance or ranges. Do you want to improve your kicking or punching range, weapons range or grappling range. You can train what ever you want from the schedule, mix and match. Explore new things or sharpen what you already know.
