KO Kickboxing - K1 Style - London

Welcome to KO Kickboxing

ko kickboxing

Teaching full-contact K1 style kicking boxing since 1976, we are a real gym for real people. If you have had enough of commercial gyms with their lightweight training and expensive contracts, then you have come to the right place. Training is fun but hard work with a focus on competition and conditioning.

ko mma

We teach both K1 Style kickboxing and Striking for MMA. Alongside KO MMA we also teach all MMA ground work techniques and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu with our top MMA and BJJ coaches from KO MMA.

We are open to everyone, male of female, expert or beginner. We can take you through our structured program which has produced numerous world champions over the years. We do not mix the level of our students. We offer three levels so you can train, spar and work with people of your own level.

We have a fully matted gym, complete with bags, pads, and full size boxing ring. We have changing facilities for both men and women.

We pride ourselves on tough training where our students learn confidence through technique, and attain peak physical fitness.

Students start out in the Intro level where we do not expect any level of fitness or experience. We train you in the basics of the sport including all basic kicks, knees and punches. We teach basic attacking and defensive strategies, and we work to build your confidence. Your fitness will gradually improve and eventually you will be asked to move the General level.

In the General level we teach more advanced technique and give you a good grounding in all defensive and attaching strategies. We build upon your fitness so you become very physically fit. Once in the General level for a few months you may wish to try your skills in the ring in amateur competition, in tough but controlled bouts against people of your level from other gyms around the country.

Eventually you may wish to join the Intermediate/Fighters level where you will compete in amateur or professional competition or where you will learn very complex techniques.
