What's the best pay-as-you-go boxing/self defense gym in central London?

I am looking for 1-2 classes a week which don't require a contract or membership.

Most Boxing or Kickboxing establishments don't usually require you to become a member or sign a lengthy contract. More traditional Martial Arts such as Karate, Kung Fu, TaeKwondo (some Kickboxing academies) etc require some sort of membership to a governing body so that you have their insurance and can take gradings.
A quick search on Google will bring up a multitude of various disciplines in central London. Unless you can get a personal recommendation it is always advisable to watch a class to see if you like the format, instructor or other participants.
Some of the best gyms can be very testosterone enhanced and make women feel uncomfortable.
If you are not phased by sweaty man classes it will give you an easier choice otherwise have a look for women-only classes, led by women instructors. You will be surprised how many men run 'women-only' classes.

I hold a combat class at my gym The Underground. It consists of boxing and Thai boxing (knees, elbows, kicks etc). The class is every Sunday, 12-1.30pm. £6 per class. Take a look at my fitness page on facebook. http://www.facebook.com/arfitness, or message me at arfitness@ymail.com for more info.


Thank you! That is exactly the sort of thing I had in mind-- where is the gym located? (I'm having trouble with that link)
