Kickboxing

A striking class focused on developing technique from the sport of Kickboxing and Muay Thai.  Students will work developing their punches, kicks, footwork, defensive techniques, and athleticism.  Beginner and advanced classes are taught off of a curriculum and testing for entry into advanced classes happens a few times per year.  At the advanced levels the class incorporates knee strikes, elbows, and working from the clinch.  It is a contact class and the majority of the lessons will focus on partner work and occasional (optional) sparring.
