It was a car accident on in 1994 that changed Glen Stanway’s life. So severe were his injuries Glen was told they were permanent and he would need to take painkillers indefinitely. Unable to work, and past the point of frustration with the constant pain Glen enrolled at his local Chin Woo wushu school hoping that kung-fu would give him his life back. The training he underwent gave Glen Stanway back his strength and flexibility, and a new passion.
Over the next two decades Glen travelled and competed all over the world representing the Chin Woo name, and founded his school the GMAX Academy, based in the town of Royston, Hertfordshire. Glen Stanway is a certified gymnastics and kickboxing coach and 5th Grade Northern Shaolin Chinwoo Wushu Master. To fully capture the heart of Chin Woo, Glen Stanway researched and published one of the few (possibly only) definitive books widely available; “Fearless The Story of Chin Woo Kung Fu. I asked Glen Stanway if he felt Chin Woo greatly influenced how schools operate today?
