ARE YOU READY?

HI, I’M MARC, WING CHUN INSTRUCTOR AND MIXED MARTIAL ARTIST

 

Marc Guyon was born and raised in France, from Franco-Vietnamese parents.

He started training in Wing Chun Kung Fu in 1999 at the age of 15, then teaching in 2004 as a part-time job while at university. He also diversified his training at the university with western boxing, savate French boxing, and fencing. He became semi-finalist of the French national university boxing championship in 2010. He also trained in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Muay Thai, kickboxing and more disciplines before moving to the UK after university in 2010, where he started to compete specifically in MMA.

He started his professional career as a finance controller in the UK then in Hong Kong for a few years, at the same time managing to train for white collar fights and teach martial arts part-time. In 2015, he decided to dedicate himself full time to his passion in martial arts and volunteer involvement in associations and charities.

Now a professional MMA fighter and founder of “MGK Fight Club”, he is also very involved as a volunteer in the French expat community, often referred to as the president of the “UFE” (Union des Français de l’étranger, the oldest and most important French society in the world) in Hong Kong. He is passionate about coaching and helping people in all matters, giving back to the community, helping expats to settle down, build a network, and find a healthy and balanced lifestyle.

Marc is not the usual martial arts coach. His focus is on helping busy people achieve what he did: having a full time job and at the same time having a balanced and athletic lifestyle. He wishes to prove that everyone can be a high level athlete, even the busy office worker. He understands the white-collar lifestyle, and believes martial arts bring key skills to managers and business leaders. His areas of expertise include martial arts techniques but also: life coaching, team building, and any kind of training developing skills such as mental strength, self-confidence, team work, and ability to work hard and under pressure.

Now living in Hong Kong, he runs classes and high level open training sessions in partnership with other athletes and instructors, to create an environment where martial artists of all disciplines and levels can develop their game and surround themselves with like-minded people.
