University of Sunderland Kickboxing Society

Hey guys,

So back in September I decided to join the university kickboxing society. Kickboxing is something I’ve always wanted to try and have never had the opportunity to do before so when I found out about the society I knew I had to join! I’ve been training for a couple of weeks now, learning various kicks and punches and tomorrow is my first grading! I’m trying for a red belt; I am extremely nervous but even if I don’t end up passing my grading I’ll be happy enough that I got the chance to try. One of the main things I need for tomorrow is a gum shield so I made a quick video to show you guys how this is done. I must say, it was a bit tricky. Here’s a quick list of the things I’ll be graded on tomorrow. Wish me luck!


Red Belt Grading:

  • Back fist
  • Cross
  • Jab
  • Round-house (Thai) kick; low and high
  • Snap kick
  • Push kick
  • General footwork and guard positioning
