About Churn Valley Kickboxing Club

The Best Version of Yourself

Since 2010, Mark Bignell, 4th Dan Blackbelt, has established and ran Churn Valley Kickboxing, teaching Kickboxing, freestyle Martial Arts and self defence in the Cirencester area. We strive to take martial arts back to its roots as both a physical and spiritual art form that represents a harmonious way of life. In a world of seemingly unending pressures, we represent an oasis of calm and balance oh and a good outlet for de-stressing!

Our classes can give you the tool to stay present and focused while standing in the eye of the storm. It is this self-awareness that allows you to make the best decisions in stressful situations, and to defend yourself when needed. We promote inner advancement above outward


We are proud members of the Cobra Martial Arts Association, a national governing body for all styles of martial arts. This ensures that standards are achieved, maintained and verified by an independent governing body.
