Kickboxing is a great sport for keeping fit, having fun and letting out some anger all while making you feel badass. We welcome all abilities from absolute beginners to more experienced fighters. So don’t be shy to try it out! Kickboxing is a great society to join because as well as good exercise we also have amazing socials, one of the most popular being our annual UV social which is known for being pretty crazy.
This year we have our kickboxing coach Dimi for Wednesdays and Thursdays and Markus, our Muay Thai coach for training on Friday. Sessions usually consist of a good CV warm-up, then some technique and pad-work and finally some sparring. With Fight Night approaching, we will also add training for Fighters to improve their fitness and strength. Both, Dimi and Markus have years of experience coaching and fighting and will help prepare those who want to take part for Fight Night, which this year is going to be in the spring term.
We provide all the Thai Pads/Spot pads and we also have boxing gloves and shin guards for people to borrow, we also have our own 16ft ring which is a great addition to sparring sessions. If you already own your own equipment, feel free to bring it along!
In previous years we’ve hosted a fight night in 360, which was hugely popular and successful and we hope to host another amazing one this year. With opposition fighters coming from Universities including; Bristol, Southampton and Loughborough.
There isn’t anything specific you should wear, just something that allows you to move freely and something that you are not going to get too hot in!
Training times this year are:
Wednesday & Thursday 5-7 at London Road Gym
Friday 6-8 at London Road Gym
