Frequently Asked Questions
What will I learn?
Our beginner courses will introduce you to the foundational techniques of kickboxing. You will learn punches and kicks, defensive movement and footwork, all whilst developing your fitness, coordination & strength.
Our highly skilled instructors will ensure that each workout is different, challenging you both physically and mentally.
What happens after I finish the course?
After completing our Level 1 Beginner Kickboxing Course, students will progress to Levels 2 & 3, where they will be introduced to more advanced techniques. After Level 3, students get to grade for their first kickboxing belt, the Red Belt.
Upon completion of Level 3, you will be able to attend all the red belt and above kickboxing classes at Paragon Gym, and you may start sparring if you wish.
Do I need any equipment?
We have communal boxing gloves that you can borrow for the duration of the course, or if you prefer, you can purchase your own. We sell gloves and other kickboxing equipment at the gym.
If you sign up for the course, as an introductory offer for £50 you can buy a beginner bundle, which includes a pair of Paragon boxing gloves, hand wraps, and a t-shirt or vest. Alternatively, if you wish to purchase gloves elsewhere, we’re happy to give you guidance on what kind of gloves to buy.
How far can I go with my training?
It is entirely up to you how far you want to go with your training! Many of our students have gone on to compete at national and international level. However, there is never any pressure to compete - most of our students are simply happy to train at the gym.
If you have aspirations to step in the ring, after progressing to the advanced level, you can start your journey towards competing in kickboxing tournaments under the careful supervision of our coaches.
