Martial arts & kickboxing club in london & Hertfordshire
In common with other martial arts styles our techniques and training are very influenced by our chief instructor who formed Shaolin Kickboxing with the aim of bringing the skills and methods found in the ancient martial art of Chinese Kickboxing (also known as Kung Fu) into the 21st Century. We honour the heritage from which Shaolin Kickboxing developed, and have built on these firm foundations to develop the art into a more practical system of total health and self-defence. With this in mind, we teach defensive and offensive techniques in structured syllabuses and free sparring: Weapons, Shadow boxing, Kickboxing as well as Destruction and much more!
“Fitness trends come and go…Shaolin endures”
We Are Eternal Students Of Our Art
Shaolin Kickboxing instructors are not only experts in their art, but have all undertaken enhanced DBS checks and are are certified to teach by the club’s Technical Committee. All instructors are courteous professionals who have been chosen to teach classes according to both their high level in Shaolin Kickboxing and their ability to motivate students through positive reinforcement and assisted goal achievement.
We are committed to helping people of all ages, sexes, social and ethnic backgrounds and levels of ability to achieve good health, physical fitness, to learn to defend themselves and to engage, in a sporting and social capacity, with other members of society.
Shaolin Kickboxing Club improves the discipline and self-confidence of our students. It helps them realise their potential and thereby improves their contribution to their families and the wider community.
how we operate
At all times, we place a high emphasis on the health and safety of all our members. As a powerful martial art, Shaolin Kickboxing is a tool, with the potential for misuse. We instil values to enhance respect for oneself and others and base progression on good character as well as physical ability. We believe the highest level of skill is most often demonstrated by the avoidance of physical combat, if possible.
All our classes are energetic affairs and discipline can best be described as respectful but relaxed and fun. Do try us for yourself; you will be made to feel most welcome!

- Goal setting
