Kickboxing training

Kickboxing refers to the sport of using Martial Arts style kicks and Western boxing style punches to defeat an opponent in a similar way to that of traditional boxing. It started in the USA during the 1970's, when American Karate practitioners became frustrated with the strict controls on martial arts competitions that didn't allow full contact kicks and punches.

Not only does Kickboxing provide an intense physical training programme, shaping, firming, toning and quickening the reflexes, it also teaches valuable self-defence techniques.
