What is Kickboxing?
Kickboxing was developed in Japan throughout the 1960s and is a martial art formed from the combination of various self-defence styles, historically developed from Karate, Muay Thai and Boxing. Kickboxing is often practiced for the purpose of self-defence, general fitness or as a combat sport. Training involves punching, kicking, knee and elbow strikes.
What will training sessions involve?
At NKMA, although our kickboxing sessions do not involve full contact sparring, we do incorporate light-continuous sparring in a safe environment. All of our sessions are carried out to music and include pad work drills, circuit training and body conditioning. We run four sessions a week in Dartford and Swanscombe and we are continuing to expand. If you're looking to stay fit, healthy, meet new friends and have a lot of fun, these lessons could be for you!
Ways to Progress
At the start of your training you will be given a syllabus book which outlines a series of techniques that steadily increase in difficulty. To progress through the ranks towards your black belt, we have gradings which are held at roughly four to six month intervals. If you pass your grading, you will be given a new belt, each time being of different colour and eventually leading to your black belt (1st Dan). Once you earn your black belt your training only continues... as you continue your life long search for perfection.
