Martial Arts Grades:
3rd Degree Black Belt - Kickboxing

Mr Golding has been training at Premier since the age of 14, at which time he was training twice a day  and entered his first K1 Kickboxing competition just before his 16th birthday, he dominated and won Gold, he has competed several times since. Shortly after this Mr G travelled to Thailand to train 3 times a day. Without Premier, he says he would never have had the confidence to travel half way around the world by himself at such a young age. Mr Golding is pleased that he can pass his knowledge and skill onto the hundreds of members we have training at Premier.
