Kickboxing Started in the 1970's

When American karate practitioners became frustrated with strict controls on martial arts competitions that didn't allow full contact kicks and punches they started Kickboxing. Many questions were raised when the sport began about the high risk of injury. As a result, safety rules were improved and protective gear was added. As this is a relatively new sport there are no long-term traditions. The sport has undergone changes and been refined during the last two decades. Kickboxing uses both kicks and punches. Focus mitts, shadow boxing, and sparring techniques that are learned and applied under professional instruction.

Fundamentals on the speed bag and the double end bag as well as the benefits of heavy bag workout help to improve coordination and better reflexes. For more information and pricing click here.
