Rising Crane Centre

The Rising Crane Centre is Bedford's longest running fully equipped, full time Martial arts academy. Our commitment is to provide the highest standards of tuition within a friendly, comfortable club atmosphere. Our Fighting Fit classes are designed to get you into the best possible shape by teaching mixed martial arts movements hitting bags and using cutting edge conditioning methods, without sparring or partner contact. They are also recommended for anybody that wants to learn MMA but wants to learn the moves and get into great physical condition first.

Our Kung Fu and Tai Chi programs aim to teach the authentic, traditional arts the same exacting standards as you would find in China, but using modern scientific training methods and a teaching style that is suited to western students. We aim to improve the quality of life of individuals by increased health and well being, improved levels of energy, and learning of a valuable cultural art.
