Kickboxing

Sensei Shawn Frix <bio>


Kickboxing is a group of stand-up combat sports based on kicking and punching, historically developed from karate, Muay Thai, Taekwondo and Western boxing. Kickboxing is practiced for self-defense, general fitness, or as a contact sport.

Japanese kickboxing originates in the 1960s, with competitions held since then. American kickboxing originates in the 1970s and brought to prominence in September 1974 when the Professional Karate Association (PKA) held the first World Championships. Historically, kickboxing can be considered a hybrid martial art formed from the combination of elements of various traditional styles. 

Our kickboxing program is focused on building strength and endurance along with improving students' overall fitness level. One class typically burns 600+ calories. We also promote proper warm-ups and cool downs to promote safety.
