GMax Coach Susana Iglesias

Coming from a circus skills and dance background, Susana started training in martial arts in 1999, studying Muay Thai kickboxing. She later began 

training in Northern Shaolin Chin Woo Wushu (kung fu), Sanshou (Chinese kickboxing) and yoga, and continues to train regularly in these disciplines. Having benefited so much  personally from training in martial arts, Susana discovered a desire to teach, in the hope that others may also benefit as she has.

Susana has a passion to teach inclusively and strongly believes that training in kung fu and kickboxing is not only a great way to get fit, but is also a hugely beneficial tool for beating depression, by developing confidence and self esteem and making training fun!

Although new to martial arts tournaments, Susana has represented GMax performing traditional open hand and weapons routines. In 2013, Susana won two gold medals at the BKC British Championships and gold at the Kwon English Championships, winning a further gold medal at the 2014 WKU British Championships.
