5 out of 5 stars (7)
  • Universal the most reliable provider of quality fight gear.
    5

    I have found Universal martial arts supplies the
    most consistent and reliable provider of quality
    brand name fight gear even in kids sizes. Orders
    are always delivered with correct items and on
    time. My son has been studying karate for almost 6
    years and also competes in local boxing comps and
    he is very difficult to fit for gloves but it has
    never been a problem for Peter Burke of Universal
    to return our phone or text message promptly and
    help us find the correct fitting gloves which is
    very commendable as we deal with universal only
    online.

    Hi! I'm looking to take up classes again mainly for fitness and was wondering how much classes were and if a uniform is required?

    Hi Rebecca, I will email you all the information you need about our Universal Self Defence mixed martial arts classes. You do not need a uniform to start with to join in and tryout a class. Just wear something loose you can stretch and exercise in and come about 10-15 minutes early so you can see the instructor. Classes are very easy to follow even for beginners having their first lesson.
