What is Kickboxing?
Kickboxing is a modern martial art and combat sport which can be practiced for health & fitness, self-defense, or competition. The techniques taught in kickboxing include punches, kicks and knee strikes from the standing position.
Kickboxing style training looks at all techniques equally, and favors combinations and forward pressure.
The fast pace of Kickboxing is ideal for training for fitness or for fighting.
You are not required to spar, and if you simply wish to train for fun and fitness that’s okay. If you do chose to spar you’ll be invited to join in once you have mastered the basics.
