Kickboxing @ GU1 Kickboxing  

GU1 kickboxing has been based in Guildford, Surrey for over ten years. We teach men, women and children from 13 years old upwards of all abilities, from beginners right through to experienced martial artists. All students are encouraged to train at their own pace and in turn learn from participating with each other. We understand that everyone chooses Kickboxing for their own reasons, be it fitness, to lose weight or learn the martial style and this is noted in our classes and syllabus.

Kickboxing is derived from traditional Martial Arts and Boxing. Student interaction is highly encouraged and everyone trains at their own pace. We have a grading system starting with White belt through to Black belt and above.

Self defence: Kickboxing has been perfected over the years into a highly effective and easy to learn fighting concept. It is undoubtedly one of the best self defence systems you will encounter.

Cardio training: Kickboxing can be a cardio-based form of exercise. You will train at a pace which will raise your heart rate and in time help you increase your stamina and lose weight.

Flexibility training: Undoubtedly one of the most important parts of any Martial Art. Stretching is included in every session and you will slowly increase your level of flexibility. Supple muscles help us move faster and more efficiently.

Strength training: During the training session, you will work on developing your body strength using exercises that will increase muscle power and effectiveness.
