What is Kickboxing?
Kickboxing is an energetic class that will help you get in shape, gain confidence and learn practical self-defence skills. While kickboxing has a tough reputation, our classes are open to all which means we won’t force you to spar and you can train how you feel comfortable at a pace that suits you. Regardless of how you participate, the health and fitness benefits are there for all.
What do you do in Kickboxing Class?
The exact contents of a class may vary although common activities include a warm up, some shadow boxing to practise your moves, some punch bag work to feel the impact, kick-pad work in pairs and perhaps even some sparring if you feel ready for the challenge. What you can expect is a workout that will improve your balance and coordination, help you lose weight and get fit.
What do I need to bring to Kickboxing Sessions?
You’ll need your enthusiasm and perhaps a bit of bravery if you want to give sparring a go. Other than that, you should make sure to bring some water so you’re hydrated during the session, as well as a towel and a change of clothes for afterwards. If you’re up for sparring, bring a gumshield too, just for that extra level of protection. You might also want to bring wrist wraps for extra stability when punching.
What to wear to Kickboxing Class
A loose-fitting t-shirt and loose-fitting shorts are a great way to dress for kickboxing classes. You could probably make do with loose jogger bottoms although, when kicking, you might appreciate the extra mobility you’ll get with shorts.
