The emphasis of kick boxing classes varies depending on the class and instructor. Kick boxing Classes teach self-defence and improve health and fitness. Traditional Kick Boxing is taught as a contact sport and as the name suggests, involves a lot of kicking and punching.
Cardio kickboxing classes differ from self-defense focused classes in that they focus on aerobic fitness. Essentially all Kickboxing classes combines learning self-defence skills with a high-impact workout incorporating aerobic exercise and resistance training to develop a strong, and fit physique. Students get to use both the upper and lower body to punch, kick, block and elbow a phantom opponent, which keeps heart rate high and strengthens muscles.
A Kick boxing class can be physically demanding, designed to improve cardio respiratory health, overall fitness and concentration. Kickboxing incorporates a variety of different exercises, making it an ideal workout for those who are easily bored by more repetitive and monotonous forms of martial art and fitness exercise.
Kick boxing is a hybrid martial art and originally grew out of Karate, Thai boxing and western boxing.
