I started training at KIXX 15 years ago doing the San Shou ( /classes/about/sanshou/) exclusively for about 3 years until I had an opportunity to move to Maidstone to train in pretty much everything else taught at KIXX.

Paul Buckley, Instructor


I started training in martial arts with KIXX in 2001. I have practiced a range of arts including chang chuen, tai chi, boxing, pushing hands, san shou, jeet kune do, and wuzuquan.

I left the UK in 2004/2005 and sought out different schools and styles. There were few alternatives that I benefited from as much as KIXX, and I found more value in the forms and conditioning training on my own. I was able to train further in China and Malaysia but always stayed connected to…
