K1-Kickboxing training is a representation and combination of numerous Martial Arts, such as Kickboxing, Kung-fu, and Kyokushin styles and combines most of the basic elements of other Martial Arts styles for training, self-defense, and combat fighting.
The training is a very strict form that does not use clinching, elbows, or ground fighting, but allows the use of punches, kicks, and knees and is a very effective form of self-defense.
Above all, the mixed K1-Kickboxing sessions are designed for all beginners and anyone with past experience. Furthermore, the training lessons are fantastic for overall body conditioning and as a result will improve your cardiovascular fitness to an excellent standard.
However, some limited experience in Martial Arts is expected for the Saturday session, due to the use of contact drills.
In addition, all the training is done in a very relaxed, friendly, and positive way. The Saturday session does involve basic contact drills and optional sparring training, but the contact is controlled by how much you want to do!
However, all students will need to have the correct protective gear for Saturday’s training. Own gloves, mouthguard, and basic leg protectors! We can provide these items at reasonable prices.
You don’t need to book any of our sessions, just turn up and get started in the martial arts fitness regime.
In conclusion, comfortable training gear to wear is all you need to start enjoying K1-Kickboxing. Remember, sound mind, sound body!
