What You Should Know Before You Begin Kickboxing


For those looking to just increase coordination, confidence, strength or for those who want good cardio training, kickboxing can be the solution. The kickboxing or muay thai certification focus on everything from dance elements for self-defense to cardio competitions.


The muay thai course creator and your instructor, Bryce Krause has trained some of the best martial artists in the world including: Rafael Dos Anjos UFC Champion, Michael Bisping UFC Champion, BJ Penn, 2 weight class UFC Champion, Cris Cyborg UFC/Bellator/Invicta Champion.

But to choose the best classes, or the classes that allow you to achieve your goals, you need to better understand what kickboxing really means.


Kickboxing is a very generic term. In South Asia the word can refer to Pradal Serey from Cambodia, Yaw Yan from the Philippines, or the best known, Muay Thai. In the United States, on the other hand, kickboxing is seen as a mixture of boxing and karate.

If this little introduction made a desire to try this sport grow, go through personal trainer education and remember the following tips:


1 – Define a personal goal

Determine the objectives of the practice of this sport and what physical preparation you have is the first step before choosing which place to train. Do you want to improve your cardiovascular system or do you want to become a champion fighter? Some gyms have classes that incorporate dance, however most are geared towards fights. 


2 – Finding the right classes

After deciding what type of classes you want to attend, it is important to do a little research on the best gyms and the best instructors. Observing classes before signing up can help you avoid choosing and paying for classes that don’t suit what you’re looking for.


3 – Understand your fitness

If you are not sure about your physical condition, the ideal is to see a doctor before starting any sport, especially if you suffer from chronic diseases such as asthma or obesity. Even more kickboxing is a very intense sport, in which the training challenges the body in unusual ways and which has associated the risk of physical contact for those who choose to fight classes.
