the curriculum.


How long will it take me to become reasonable
proficient?

The time it takes to become proficient varies with each
individual depending on the effort they put forth.
At Kickboxing Ireland schools, students are very often
amazed by their own ability and accomplishment in as
little as six months.
This training will give you the confidence of knowing that
you can defend yourself in most situations. Your real
goal, however, should be to attain the rank of Black Belt
. This level of proficiency typically takes about eight
years. Once again, however, this will vary depending on
you level of effort and desire.
