Kickboxing is a great way to reduce stress, gain energy and get into shape. These classes will assist you with muscular conditioning and increase your fitness in a safe and fun atmosphere.
You will gain greater strength and agility with most techniques using the entire body movement rotating the hip with each kick, punch, elbow and block. On a mental level you will improve your self-confidence, discipline and self-awareness.
Muay Thai is referred to as the ‘Art of Eight Limbs’ because it makes use of punches, kicks, elbows and knee strikes, therefore using eight ‘points of contact’.
The instructor teaches moves using Thai pads, focus mitts, and sparring. Focus mitts are used to teach hand speed, punch / power, timing, defence, and counter-punching. Sparring is used to test technique, skills, range, strategy, and timing against a partner.
Equipment is provided for use during classes but for reasons of hygiene we do recommend that you purchase hand wraps to wear underneath the gloves. These are available for purchase from the Rec Centre reception.Wear clothing that won’t restrict your movement. This class will get your body temperature up, so wear t-shirts and trackies or shorts. Trainers are your best choice for footwear.
