WHY ARE WE DIFFERENT?
Kickboxing is a modern contact fighting sport created on the basis of many traditional combat sports and martial arts. Kickboxing is a unique Western response to many Eastern martial arts. It can be practiced on competitive or recreational level depending on the aspirations of the kickboxer, but for sure it is a sport designed to improve your overall health, strength and endurance.
In our academy kickboxing is much more than kicking and punching. We
take kickboxing to a higher level than only fitness. We teach our students
how to use the kicks and punches in real combats which will lead to build
their self confidence, ambition and character.
