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.

Rockys Dojo Kickboxing Classes

Rocky’s Dojo offers kickboxing classes for women, men, and youth. Our classes are co-ed and for 1-hour. We teach our students self-defense, striking with punches and kicks and multiple types of bags to teach strength and striking control. All our students build self-confidence and learn to remain calm under pressure. We train in a safe, fun, and controlled environment that is suitable for all skill levels and all ages.

Learn self-defense through flexibility, coordination, conditioning, and discipline. Basic punches, blocks and kicks will be taught at each.

We are not a cardio-kickboxing class. You learn how to kickbox and not just punch a couple of bags. There is cardio in all aspects of classes but it’s not the main emphasis. We teach kickboxing and incorporate cardio into the workout in every class for conditioning purposes. The emphasis is on the technique used if you ever need to use this for self-defense. Since our kickboxing classes are for both beginner and advanced levels, each member can work out at their own pace.

What you will Experience in Each Kickboxing class

We then go downstairs to boxing ring area. A wide variety of bags are used in drills and sparring is done in the 20X20 foot professional boxing ring.
