Helen Grant Visits KIXX Chinese Martial Arts

Helen Grant MP, Member of Parliament for Maidstone and the Weald, dropped in to visit KIXX Chinese Martial Arts in Maidstone on Saturday, and was given a tour of the club by Sifu Nigel Gilham.

Founded in 2000, and based on Granville Road, KIXX Martial Arts Club is a training centre aimed at promoting both Northern and Southern Chinese Martial Arts. Whether practiced for relaxation, fitness, health, self-defence, or simply a better sense of wellbeing, KIXX caters for all levels and goals for everyone from four years of age upwards.

The Club looks to provide an inclusive environment where all are able to train with quality coaches and instructors. This approach was rewarded with the awarding of a Sport England Clubmark Accreditation, an accolade that focuses on health and safety, development, opportunities, equality, and a fair approach to all.

Speaking outside the Club, Helen Grant MP said:

"It was a real pleasure to come and visit KIXX today, and to see one of their classes for myself. It is a wonderful way for everyone to get active, learn some new skills, and have a great deal of fun.

I very much support what Nigel and his team are doing, and I hope that the Club goes from strength to strength."

Sifu Nigel Gilham added:

"One of the most recent and enjoyable highlights for KIXX Martial Arts Club Maidstone, was a visit from Helen Grant, MP for Sport and Equality. She helped to inspire all of our class members with her sincere, motivational words of encouragement.

It is nice to be complimented on our clubs friendly and 'accessible for all' atmosphere, making KIXX a rewarding place to commit to regular training."
