Boxing Class & Kickboxing Q and A
I have no experience in kickboxing. Can I Still try a class as a beginner?
Beginners start everyday! We take the time to walk you through a one-on-one intro before your first class to make sure you feel comfortable and assist you with feedback during each session so you continue to progress safely in your form and fitness.
What Equipment do I need?
The only necessary equipment is boxing gloves, although hand wraps are very recommended. Don’t have your own? We offer a killer first timer discount on a brand new pair of 12oz boxing gloves for just $20 before your first class.
What should I wear to class? Do I need a uniform?
No, these classes are not traditional martial arts classes. They are fun, filled with energy and designed to make you sweat. Wear comfortable workout attire that you won’t mind getting sweaty. Shoes are also optional on the deck!
I'm very interested in learning this for self defense. Should I take kickboxing or the COBRA Self Defense Class?
Both wouldn’t hurt! But if you want to get straight to the point of reality defense skills then C.O.B.R.A ™ is where you want to go. The 1 Day Survival Camp happens monthly and personal training is also available. See more HERE!
Is there a minimum or maximum age for taking the classes?
Since these classes are built for adults and their focus time we do recommend a minimum age of 13yrs old. Max age? Really there is none! Our oldest member is 79yrs old
I have bad knees and back problems. Will I be able to take these classes?
Yes! Kickboxing is a low impact exercise which means that it does not put the stress on your joints like other cardiovascular exercises. Classes are “Self Paced,” meaning that if you ever need to take a break during class or substitute a technique for one that feels too painful, you can do it. If you have knee or back issues, let us know and we will give you some modifications during class. Everyone is different, so is try a free class to see how your body responds.
