GU1KICKBOXING has been based in Guildford, Surrey for over ten years. We teach men, women and children from 13 years old upwards of all abilities, from beginners right through to experienced martial artists. All students are encouraged to train at their own pace and in turn learn from participating with each other. We understand that everyone chooses Kickboxing for their own reasons, be it fitness, to lose weight or learn the martial style and this is noted in our classes and syllabus.
Kickboxing is derived from traditional Martial Arts and Boxing. Student interaction is highly encouraged and everyone trains at their own pace. We have a grading system starting with White belt through to Black belt and above.
Roz joined the PKA in Isleworth, London, and trained for several years before progressing to enrol in the Instructor Development Programme. She took her Black Belt, 1st Dan, and soon after qualified as an instructor. Roz is now running several very successful clubs and is the Head instructor and founder of GU1 kickboxing. She has now been teaching Kickboxing and self defence to both adults and children for over 10 years and is leading the development and expansion of GU1 Kickboxing throughout Surrey.

Kickboxing has been perfected over the years into a highly effective and easy to learn fighting concept. It is undoubtedly one of the best self defence systems you will encounter.
Stretching is included in every session and you will slowly increase your level of flexibility. Supple muscles help us move faster and more efficiently.
Kickboxing is a cardio-based form of exercise. You will train at a pace which will raise your heart rate and in time help you increase your stamina and lose weight.
During the training session, you will work on developing your body strength using exercises that will increase muscle power and effectiveness.
There are three payment methods for our classes:
Annual Martial Arts Insurance This should be offered by all martial arts classes as a level of cover. The insurance is renewable with the club each year. The annual price for this is £25 per year and your first years cover also includes your record of achievement booklet to record any seminars, specialist courses and grading’s you may wish to attend
Are you bored of going to your local gym or swimming pool? I know of many people who would like to start a martial art but are scared about trying it, this is the place for you. I started training in kickboxing in February 2016 and have really enjoyed it from the first class. I am training to be a stunt performer and kickboxing has really developed my flashy, high, spinning kicks that I need for Television and Film sets but it has also given me more confidence in street self defence.

I started taking kickboxing classes with Roz in October 2010, having become dissatisfied with a previous martial arts class and looking for something that would challenge me and build my skills. From the outset, I wasn’t disappointed; as the youngest in the class, I found myself training with older teenagers and adults of varying levels, ranging from beginners like me right up to black belts. However, the attentive and personalised support I was given made sure I was practising the techniques correctly and learning new skills effectively. This level of personal support provided to myself and every other member, which for a class of so many people was quite remarkable, has remained a constant throughout my five years of training with Roz, and has been a vital factor in my development from taking a nervous first class to achieving my 1st Dan black belt in March this year.

Through Roz’s expert level of knowledge not only about kickboxing, but also multiple martial arts as well as fitness and physical wellbeing as a whole, her years of experience within the discipline, and her endless dedication to the development of both the class and her own abilities, I have grown confident in a sport that initially seemed far beyond my reaches. This class has shown me that the sport really is accessible to every sort of person from any sporting background, made so accessible through Roz’s outstanding teaching capabilities and drive. The class has helped me personally to improve exponentially my physical health, my self-confidence, and my own sense of self-worth, as well as providing me with a close-knit group of friends with a shared determination to work as a group to collectively be the best we can be, both inside and outside of class.
