This is a genuine martial arts fitness class, coached by martial artists! Also making use of the necessary equipment and not to be confused with the aerobics classes offered with similar names by health club chains and such.
A typical class will include a warm up of the joints and a warm up which includes exercises from star jumps to running, a stretch is then done. From there the techniques which include aspects of Boxing, Taekwon-Do and Kickboxing are performed on a heavy boxing bag and alternated with shadow sparring (hitting the air). There after strength & toning exercises are done for example exercises like push ups, crunches & squats etc. Ending off with a stretch. There are various ways the class is run including a circuit and mixing the toning exercises between bag work.
The workout is diverse and covers pretty much all aspects of a healthy body from cardio & core work to strengthening and can also be used as cross training for improving performance in any sport.
During any part of the class you can slow down or stop. With each class you will improve. A typical time to rest could be while alternating with bag work and shadow sparring. Eg. you might rest or stretch while the shadow sparring is happening etc.
Water can be drunk at any time in the class. You don’t have to wait for the designated water breaks.
