Kickboxing is known for its ability to tone and build strength in nearly every part of your body. It engages your arms, legs, abs, shoulders, and glutes all at once! Kickboxing puts serious stress on all of these muscle areas, building strength quickly. Additionally, thanks to its heavy use of cardio, Kickboxing burns tons of calories and aids in major weight loss (but not muscle mass loss of course)! All around, it is perfect for strengthening and vitalizing the entire body. You’ll find yourself feeling and looking stronger, healthier, and happier. These benefits will carry over into all other areas of your athletic training, work performance, and personal life
Although Kickboxing isn’t a ground fighting style, it provides students with many lessons that prepare them for potential attacks or altercations. To begin with, Kickboxing allows its practitioners to use their hands, feet, and knees for various punches and kicks. This provides students with the tools needed to defend themselves from an attacker with a swift punch or a powerful kick. Not to mention, it emphasizes awareness, mental sharpness, overall body strength, muscle memory, and the proper timing of a kick or strike. Furthermore, it imparts important techniques and helps individuals react quickly and effectively.
