About GMax
Glen Stanway founded the GMax Academy to pass on the many benefits in life, both physical and psychological, that he has enjoyed from training. GMax Academy incorporates Northern Shaolin Chin Woo UK, and is an official representative of Master Teng's Northern Shaolin Chin Woo Wushu Centre.

GMax Academy offers training in Northern Shaolin Kung Fu, Kickboxing and Gymnastics, on a one-to-one, group or class basis. Our coaches are available for private tuition, ongoing classes, seminars and consultancy.

Why martial arts?

In addition to the fitness benefits, martial arts training helps improve self-confidence, co-ordination and discipline, and through the regular practice and recall of techniques and routines, will also exercise the mind. Using a “Belt-System” syllabus, training is continually progressive and benchmarked. And most obviously, you will be learning self defence skills. If you are going to do all those push-ups and sit-ups, you may as well learn a useful skill too!

Why GMax Academy?

[     GMax Coaches are highly qualified and have many years experience in coaching, performing or competing in various disciplines, including martial arts, self defence, boxing, kickboxing and gymnastics.
[     GMax Coaches have a foundation in gymnastics coaching with an extensive knowledge of strength, flexibility and fitness training, as well as being well versed in sports nutrition and psychology.
[     Gymnastics is widely recognised as the most demanding sport to coach. It was originally developed over 2000 years ago by the ancient Chinese, Greek and Roman armies, to strengthen their soldiers. Gymnastic skills are still used today in modern army training. Gymnastics-based conditioning will make you a very fit and very strong individual.
[     GMax classes, whilst developing respect and self-discipline, are informal, friendly and fun.
[     GMax Academy founder and Head Coach, Glen Stanway, is in regular contact with his Master, the renowned and respected Master Teng Wie Yoo, coach to many Asian, International and World Champions. Glen is the author of "The Art of Coaching" and "Fearless The Story of Chin Woo Kung Fu".
[     GMax Adult Classes are just £7.00 for 90 minutes, and £5.00 for a 60 minute Childrens Class, and discounted further for club members who pay in advance.
[     GMax Athletes have won Gold, Silver and Bronze medals at regional, national and international level in competitions for kickboxing and traditional martial arts.

GMax classes are designed to cater for all levels of ability, boys and girls, men and women, from absolute beginner to seasoned veteran. Choose one of the disciplines listed, come along, join in, get fit and have fun! Classes are ongoing, so there is no need to book. You just need to bring yourself, wear a T-shirt, jogging bottoms, light training shoes/plimsolls, bring a bottle of water, and enjoy the GMax experience!

All classes include an aerobic warm up, muscle conditioning and stretching. Training will improve your fitness, muscle tone, flexibility, coordination and confidence, whilst learning new skills.
