about us

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”

Black Belts
Founder, chief instructor

Kingsley morgan

Chief Instructor Mr. Kingsley Morgan trained in Chinese Kickboxing for over 25 years and was awarded his black belt at the unprecedentedly young age of 15. After many years of dedication, intensive training and study he went on to achieve the remarkable award of 7th degree black belt. – One of very few 7th degree black belts in Chinese Kickboxing in the world.

As a disciplined fighter and martial arts expert, Kingsley has known many world ranked fighters, some of whom became very good friends. One of these, who admired the Chief Instructor’s talents, was Frank Lobman, a heavyweight K1 champion and five-times European heavyweight kickboxing champion. Based in Rotterdam, Holland. Frank and Kingsley sometimes trained and sparred together in England and abroad in order to perfect their fighting qualities and techniques.

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!
