Robert Dixon & Jennifer Brown
Robert & Jennifer bring knowledge, enthusiasm and joy to Ares Training Centre.
Robert began studying combative arts in the early 2000s after much coaxing by his wife Jennifer. He had always been active in sports and fitness throughout his life but had never tried any martial arts. After one class he was hooked, and has never looked back!

Jennifer has been involved in kickboxing since the age of 14, with a wealth of experience. Jennifer is a CASK certified coach and CASK Elite Level Instructor.
