Kickboxing is known as 'The art of Striking', and Striking is regarded by many as 'The Ultimate form of combat'.

With correct and regular training Kickboxers can develop power in their striking techniques that is much stronger than their physical bodyweight, thus leading to a tremendous advantage in a real life self-defence situation.


The core of the Kickboxing system taught at the Wolf Gym is based on Fitness training with Self-Defence applications. Only if a person wishes, are they offered Competition training. It is stressed that the majority of our members do not compete and that you would not be expected to either.

Our members can also progress though our grading syllabus should they wish to train towards their Black Belt.

The Wolf Gym's Kickboxing syllabus teaches Striking using Kicks, Boxing, Knees, Elbows and Open-Palm Striking.

Utilising techniques and training methods from Thai-Kickboxing ( Muay-Thai ) and Japanese Kickboxing ( K-1 ) as well as traditional techniques from Muay-Boran
and Kyokushin making it an ideal system for those seeking training in a striking system for Self-defence or for Ring-Sport under 'K-1' Rules or 'Muaythai' Rules.

Additionally, the Wolf Gym's Kickboxing system also teaches Ground-Striking, for those wanting to compete under M.M.A. ( Mixed-Martial-Arts ) Rules where matches involve Standup-fighting and Ground-fighting. The Ground-Striking is covered in seperate classes to the regular timetable via our 'Cage-Kickboxing' ( Striking-for-M.M.A. ) programme.

For those who do actually wish to compete in the ring, we train students to compete at national Amateur Championship tournaments under what is generally known as 'K-1' rules ( Japanese Kickboxing rules ).

For those that excel in the Amateur division, we can then train students specifically for Professional bouts under 'Muaythai' rules ( Thai-Kickboxing rules ).

Despite incredible succeses by our members in competition, we stress that we are first and foremost a martial arts school, that has also trained many Champions during the last 20 years, including TWO
World Amateur Kickboxing Champions.

Warrington Kickboxing Studio has taught thousands of people over the last 20 years who's focus was just the Fitness and Self-Defence applications of our system, and if this is your primary goal - then we are the place for you.

If you wish to train Kickboxing as a Combat-Sport cleary our results and reputation speak for themselves!

We also have a comprehensive Instructor program whereby Senior / Black Belt students can work towards becoming an Certified Instructor and gain the 'Red Band' insignia.

This is attained via an apprentice method ( actual experience rather than simply an exam lasting a few hours ). Instructor training covers all aspects of coaching, from teaching beginners through to more advanced students, as well as having strong focus on the Ringcraft element of the sport. Apprentice Instructors also learn Referee and Judging Skills as well as how to prepare someone for the ring and corner people who are actually competing.

Our winning Kickboxing syllabus has built us a leading reputation over the last 20 years, due to coaching more than 40 Black belts and several National, two European and two World Amateur Champions!
