The benefits of Kickboxing
In today’s world we have so many gadgets and technology items that are designed to make our life easier, which is great. The downside is that we are becoming much more inactive, sitting down at computers, remaining motionless for long periods of time, shopping online, using Apps to switch on electronics devices and get food directly delivered to our front doors.
In order to maintain physical and mental fitness, we have to keep our bodies moving and our minds stimulated.
- Get a full body workout (cardio and strength and conditioning)
- Improve your flexibility
- Tone all your muscles
- Increase your heart rate
- Improve your motor skill and coordination
- Improve your balance
- Stretch your mind
- Enjoy some time away from your day to day hassles and stressors
What can you expect in one of our Women’s Kickboxing classes?
Our female only classes start with a warm up to great music from our Martial Music Blast (MMB) classes and are great for fitness and a really energising way to start the class, full of fun and a great feel good factor.
Drawing our Kickboxing techniques from Chinese Kung Fu, we include a wide range of skills and techniques for our ladies to learn.
- Standing techniques including striking and kicking on bags and pads
- Close range self defence techniques
- Defending yourself on the ground
- Self protection against weapons
The key principles that we work towards is that moves must be personalised for you as an individual. Physically, we are all very different. This means that with different physiology, we must accept that the techniques will not look the same as other people.
Your fitness levels, strength and conditioning will all improve training in our Ladies only Kickboxing class. We use many different methods of fitness training from our qualified coaches, the video shows just one example.
We need a combination of Aerobic fitness and strength exercises. Aerobic fitness includes walking, running, riding a bike, mowing the lawn and Martial Arts practice especially Martial Music Blast. Strength and Conditioning exercises include working with weights, including body weight exercises, using resistance bands and gardening. Some activities such as Martial Arts with our Ladies only Kickboxing class in Basingstoke can combine both forms of exercises to increase and maintain levels of fitness.
Maintaining a level of fitness is important as we increase in age. Women are more susceptible to Osteoporosis, the effects of which can be diminished by bodyweight bearing exercises such as those used in Kickboxing.
The NHS recommends a number of areas to help prevent Osteoporosis including:
- At least 2 hours 30 minutes of cardio activity per week.
- and on two days per week muscle strengthening exercises.
- They also suggest quitting smoking and reducing Alcohol intake.
