Light Contact Kickboxing & Fitness Pad Work
What is Kickboxing?
Kickboxing is a group of martial arts and stand-up combat sports based on kicking and punching, historically developed from Karate, Muay Thai and Western boxing. Kickboxing is practiced for self-defence, general fitness, or as a contact sport. Kickboxing has roots in very traditional Japanese Martial Arts as well as Western Boxing.
