Our club was founded in 2001 by Chris Colquitt. He started from scratch at the Commonwealth Pool borrowing pads and gloves to train with. Chris was succeeded as coach by Simon McRobb.


A third training session was introduced in 2008 which coincided with Chris returning as a coach. Having moved to London at the end of 2008, he was replaced by Michelle Pinkerton who has helped to expand the sparring side of the club. Since 2014 the club's coach has been John Young.


From our simple beginnings, we now have over 200 members; both students and non-students, sponsorship deals with several local businesses and a burgeoning social scene. We have also greatly expanded the competitive side of the club and compete in competitions both in Edinburgh and across the UK.
