Kickboxing dates back to Asia 2,000 years ago, although modern competitive kickboxing actually started in the 1970ís.
The form of kickboxing we use in class is cardiovascular (cardio) kickboxing, which which combines elements of boxing, martial arts, and aerobics to provide overall physical conditioning and toning. kickboxing classes usually start with 10-15 minutes of warm-ups, which may include stretching and traditional exercises such as jumping jacks and push-ups, followed by a 30-minute kickboxing session that includes movements such as knee strikes, kicks, and punches.
Kickboxing not only keeps your body fit but also can burn anywhere from 350 to 450 calories an hour!!
Controlled punching and kicking movements carried out with the discipline and skills required for martial arts, kickboxing reduces and relieves stress, improves balance, flexibility, coordination and endurance levels.
Kickboxing is a great way to keep the body in shape whilst learning basic self defence moves.
