Hernan Rojas Nazar
Hernan has been exposed to a wide variety of martial arts practices over the last 16 years, and maintains an open mind to all the techniques and styles that are of value.
His kickboxing classes teach fighting skills as well as general strength training, balance, coordination, body mechanics, self defense and flexibility.
Kickboxing classes on a Thursday nights from 7pm- 8.30pm
Kickboxing is a great way to stay fit and also learn to protect yourself. This class is based on the principles of Chinese kickboxing called San Shou or Sanda.
Our school trains in such a way that we support each other to be the best we can. We do not tolerate unnecessary aggression and treat each other as family. Being part of the group means learning from each individual and training with dedication and respect.

Undertaking a new practice requires commitment and enthusiasm in order to master new skills. It's normal to not always feel like training, and yet it's amazing what can be achieved with regular practice. We welcome anyone who has a desire to be part of our school, however in order for our teachers to give their best, we require students to commit to the practices.
Becoming a member entitles you to some discounted services at NAC, as well as reserves your space. Our teachers show a high level of commitment, and becoming a member supports us to do this.
MORE ABOUT THE TEACHER
Throughout his martial arts training, Hernan has studied under a number of martial arts masters. Here in New Zealand, Hernan regularly trains with a Chinese teacher (Sifu) in Christchurch who spent his teenage years as a monk and martial artist at the Shaolin temple in China.
Hernan believes that Kung Fu, which translates as 'to do it perfectly' is for everyone. There are many different styles of martial arts, and some find the more modern forms or boxing more interesting, while others enjoy the more traditional or spiritual lineages. He encourages students to try different classes and find what feels right. He welcomes students to try both the Tuesday and Thursday evening classes.
Outside of martial arts, Hernan is part of the treatment team here at Newtown Acupuncture Centre, tirelessly applying his martial arts strength to his massage therapy work.
