Ying Yang Kickboxing Club is located on the small island of Malta in Europe and was founded by Master Noel Mercieca on the 17th November 1996. Master Mercieca is a 4th Dan in Kickboxing, 1st Dan in Tang Soo Doo, Brown Belt in Spirit Combat, European Champion and a runner up World Title. He serves with the Armed Forces of Malta and is also qualified as a gym instructor, a Military fitness Instructor and a sports masseur. Nowadays Ying Yang Club has over 100 members and is part of the largest kickboxing association, the WKN.
Master Noel Mercieca has been training his athletes with Ying Yang Kickboxing Club for the past 13 years and through these years many of our athletes won numerous competitions and titles, both National and European.
Our club itself organises various kickboxing events throughout the year to promote kickboxing more in Malta and to give its athletes every excitement this sports has to offer. Being in a large association such as the WKN, gives the opportunity for Ying Yang athletes to participate in competitions all over the world and gives them the chance to win International Kickboxing Titles in different weight categories for both Amateur and Professional classes.
The club distinguishes its members, according to their training experience, with traditional Martial Arts Belts (from White to Black) which are gained throughout certified grading sessions that take place over specific periods of months and training.
The gym is composed of locker rooms (including showers) for each separate gender and is also equipped with many kickboxing equipment such as punching bags, speed balls, boxing pads and a ring to give its members professional kickboxing preparation. The floor is covered with protective mats to absorb falling impact and we also have medical kits ready in case of emergencies.
We try to make Kickboxing lessons as innovative as possible by holding lessons in natural ambient places and always thrive to learn new approaches for training.
