What is Kickboxing Classes?
As the name suggests and to better understand what is Kickboxing, the style is a combination of boxing with the kicks that feature in karate. This particular martial art has developed over the years and not only does it take place competitively in a ring, much like boxing, but it also is one that people choose as an aerobic workout too, as well as a skill that some use for self-defence.
