About Kickboxing

Loughborough Students Freestyle Kickboxing, founded in 2001, is one of the most popular and exciting clubs in the Athletic Union. The club offers a challenging training schedule for both fighters and non-fighters.

Beginner or advanced LSFK has something to offer. The club includes a fully equipped training centre with a padded floor, a selection of punch bags, focus pads, kick shields, skipping ropes, medicine balls, stretching machines and protective equipment. The club is a fantastic way to improve confidence, increase fitness and meet some new people.

Furthermore, the club has a packed social calendar with friendly trainers and members, ensuring that joining is an enjoyable experience. The club does not tolerate big egos or attitudes, making it a great place to learn and improve.


Kit & Dress code

Wear a black t-shirt or vest (with no large logos), either your own or club kit.

Wear black trousers or shorts with no zips, preferably kickboxing trousers (these are allowed to be different in colour).

Boxing gloves are recommended for training. The glove weight is not too important. Anything between 10-16 oz will work.

For sparring the following kit should be worn. Head guard, gum shield, gloves (14-16oz), groin guard (men), shin guards, foam sparring boots.

NO JEWELLERY should be worn whilst training.


Training Etiquette

As we are a club that pride ourselves on a more balanced approach to kickboxing and martial arts as a whole. We try not to get bogged down in the rigidity that other martial arts possibly do.

However we do follow a few simple principles regarding dress code and common courtesy; to ensure good running of the club, which all members must follow without exception.

If you have graded with the club you should wear your belt to training. This is out of courtesy and respect to Carl as the instructor. If you accidentally forget your belt, apologise to Carl at the start of the session.

If you take off your belt for any reason in training i.e. to spar, place it neatly on the side or back in your bag. You should treat your belt with respect; leaving your belt strewed across the floor is considered rude.

If you are late to a lesson you must apologise to Carl, bow in and wait for him to tell you to join in with the club. This is just politeness to all that are training, as you would not be late for a meeting at work and just jump straight into proceedings without apologising to colleagues first.

If you need to leave early notify Carl of this and he will understand, again this is just common courtesy.

When Carl is showing the next technique/activity in training, be quiet. This just makes it easier for all to hear.
