Warrington Kickboxing Studio has been known as a 'Home of Champions' for many years, due to consistantly producing competitors of the highest quality in both the Amateur and the Professional divisons.

Although competition is not for everyone, our results reflect the quality of martial arts tuition given by our team of expert Instructors.

For many of our members who do not compete, most feel very proud of being part of such a winning team! Especially in this modern day, when unfortunately there are many 'cowboy' martial arts coaches that seem to be setting up in every town across the country.

One way to establish if someone is a 'cowboy' and offering sub-standard tuition, no higher than the level of an 'aerobic-kickbox-ercise trainer', is to review the achievements of a specific gym under a particular instructor.

Please note that Warrington Kickboxing Studio has been producing Champions since it was established in 1994, ( over twenty five years ago ).

Champions in both the Professional and Amateur divisons, that have captured British, Commonwealth, European, Inter-Continental, World Titles. In total, Champions from the Wolf Gym have won a current tally of 45 title belts!

Very few gyms even if they do have some Champions, go on to produce a single World Champion.

Warrington Kickboxing Studio has produced not one - but two World Champions. An outstanding reflection on the quality of the training offered at the Wolf Gym.

The following photos are just some of the Champions from the Wolf-Gym...

Take a few minutes to browse through the gallery of some of the Wolf Gym Champions. At some point in the future, maybe your photo will be alongside theirs and you too will have the title of being a CHAMPION.

Chief Instructor, Neil Holden, with Jamie Hayes and Jason Melvin.

Jamie Hayes, ( Pictured on the left ), is one of our Brown Belt members. Here Jamie had just won the WKA Super-Middleweight 'K-1 rules' title, making him a 2 x Kickboxing Champion, as he also holds the WKU title. Jamie is also an M.M.A. Champion, this was his third time winning a Championship title belt.

Jason Melvin, ( Pictured on the right ), is one of our Blue Belt members. Here Jason had just completed an '8 Man Grandprix', ( Winning 3 bouts in a single tournament ), taking his record to an impressive undefeated run of 5 fights with 5 straight wins as he captured the WKA Super-Heavyweight 'K-1' rules title.
