Option 1 - Self Catering: 

This option is good for people on a budget & for those who want to focus on their own training. with this option you can partake in the public classes (at class rate) or have one to one private tuition for €35 per session.

Option 2 - All Inclusive

Our aim is to have a place where people can come together for an action packed fitness/martial arts experience. Whether you’re a beginner or advance doesn’t matter, we cater for all levels. You will start with morning Tai Chi and afternoon training will be martial arts & fitness based. Classes will be indoor and outdoors by the beach or lovely forests that are here in West Cork. In the evening you will be able to relax and recover while your wholesome meals are cooked.

Courses will focus mainly on fitness, cardio & resistance training through Martial Arts, but don’t worry you don’t need any past experience of Martial Arts for this type of training. Instructors will guide you step by step to make sure you stay on top of things. The styles practiced are Tai Chi, Shaolin Iron Style Kung Fu, Tae Kwon Do, Martial Arts Tricking, Gymnastics & Free Running.

Total Price for one weekend per person is €220 (which includes the €30 Booking fee). This covers accommodation, meals (Breakfast, Lunch & Evening Dinner) & training. If you need to be picked up at the airport, train or bus station in Cork city there is an extra charge of €10 per person.

There are two options available self catering and all inclusive (minimum 3 people for the all inclusive option).

All inclusive consists of breakfast served in the morning after morning class at around 9am. Lunch will be at 2pm. Evening dinner will be at 6pm. If you need any extras then a trip to Skibbereen can be easily organised for everyone. If anyone is vegetarian (or has any other specific dietary requirments) please let us know beforehand so we can organise your meals.
