Parkinson's disease is caused by a loss of nerve cells in substantia nigra of the brain. This leads to a reduction in a chemical called dopamine in the brain. Many different symptoms are associated with Parkinson's disease and the more common symptoms are slowness in movement and muscle stiffness. Parkinson's disease cannot be cured, but medications can help control symptoms. In some later cases, surgery may be advised. We can also offer this for anyone who has other life limiting conditions, like Strokes, MS, and more. Just message us for more information. 

The Kick Park Program(KPP) has been designed for people with Parkinson's allowing them, with the use  of kickboxing to improve their fitness, concentration, emotional well being and quality of life.  As well as, friendships lasting a lifetime.

Our Mission

Parkinson’s kickboxing  classes typically range from 30 to 60 minutes.


Classes may include:

  • stretches and warmup exercises

  • punching speed bags and heavy bags

  • Working in the ring(we have a cage)

  • footwork and agility exercises

  • exercises to improve overall fitness

  • core exercises

  • calisthenics and circuit training

  • vocal exercises

Our Vision

At Zen Combat (Rehabilitation) School our vision is to allow people who have diagnosed with Parkinsons (Strokes, Cancer and other life limiting Conditions) or with the onset of it, to help them lead a better life.

Intense exercise is thought to slow down the progression of Parkinson's by stimulating neurological changes in your brain. Boxing in particular has received a lot of attention for its potential slow down the progression of PD.

More research is needed to fully understand boxing’s benefits, but some early studies look promising.
