We are proud to provide the newest, freshest and coolest form of sport martial art on offer at UCL. People decide to learn kickboxing for various reasons such as self-defence, to keep fit or as a means of stress relief. Whatever your reason, the club is open to all and caters for every ability level, so don't worry if you haven't done kickboxing before (because we know that the majority of our members do not have prior kickboxing experience). The brand of kickboxing we practice at UCL is unique and comes from a blend of a variety of marital arts such as shotokan karate, taekwondo and boxing. Our aims are clear: to help all of our members keep fit, stay focused and learn how to defend themselves. Our sessions are lead by a fully qualified external instructor, John, with each session comprising of three main parts: stretching, stamina building & flexibility; fighting technique practice & consolidation; and finally, light sparring. Expect to be pushed both physically and mentally during every session. All that being said, also expect to have a lot of fun along the way!
We have three sessions a week at the Bloomsbury Fitness Centre Mandela Studio:
Mondays 8.30 - 10.00pm
Thursdays 7.00 - 8.30pm
Fridays 7.00 - 8.30pm
We also do socials and cross-activities with other martial arts clubs!
Standard membership is £22, and each session is £3.
We also recommend all members to get their own boxing gloves, as we will not be providing any due to hygiene reasons :)
