Our program is a methodical step-by-step curriculum that teaches various fighting techniques and movements, such as punching, kicking, footwork, blocking and defense, counters and strategy.

Given physical conditioning and flexibility are very important to progress, classes include cardio calisthenics, heavy bag work, partner drills, pad work, and core strengthening exercises. Cardio Kickboxing challenges your body in ways it’s not used to and it will help you build stamina and confidence, improve coordination and flexibility, and burn fat and calories (over 600 in an hour) as you build lean muscle.
