Boxing & Kickboxing

Boxing and kickboxing are popular combat sports that involve striking techniques using punches and kicks, respectively.

Boxing, also known as the “sweet science,” is a sport that focuses solely on punches. It traces its roots back to ancient times and has evolved into a highly technical and strategic sport.

Kickboxing, on the other hand, combines elements of boxing with various kicking techniques borrowed from martial arts such as Karate, Muay Thai, and Taekwondo.

Whether one’s goal is to compete at a high level or simply enjoy the physical and mental challenges, boxing and kickboxing provide exciting and rewarding experiences for practitioners of all skill levels.

What is Boxing?

Boxing has ancient origins dating back to civilizations like ancient Egypt and Greece. It gained popularity during the Roman Empire, but declined in Europe during the Renaissance.

However, boxing experienced a revival in 18th-century England, evolving from bare-knuckle contests to a regulated sport with the Marquess of Queensberry Rules. It then spread globally, particularly in the United States, with iconic fighters elevating its popularity.

Today, boxing is a highly regulated and structured sport, captivating audiences with its technical skill and strategic competition, making it one of the most celebrated combat sports worldwide.

What is Kickboxing?

Kickboxing originated in Japan in the 1960s as a hybrid combat sport that combined elements of karate and Muay Thai, a martial art from Thailand.

The sport was developed to create a more dynamic and engaging fighting style that incorporated both punches and kicks. Osamu Noguchi, a karate master, played a significant role in popularizing and formalizing kickboxing as a competitive sport. Kickboxing gained international recognition in the 1970s and 1980s through televised matches and international tournaments.

Over time, different variations of kickboxing emerged, such as American Kickboxing and Dutch Kickboxing, each with its own rule sets and stylistic differences. Today, kickboxing is practiced and enjoyed worldwide, both as a competitive sport and a fitness activity, offering a thrilling combination of striking techniques from various martial arts disciplines.

Boxing/Kickboxing Curriculum


Beginners start with foundational skills, such as proper stance, footwork, basic punches (jab, cross, hook, uppercut), and kicks (front kick, roundhouse kick). They learn defensive techniques like blocking and slipping, as well as basic combinations.

Bag and Pad Work

Students practice their punches and kicks on punching bags, focusing on technique, speed, power, and accuracy. This training helps develop striking precision, endurance, and strength. Working with a training partner or coach, students practice combinations and techniques on focus mitts or Thai pads. This drill enhances timing, coordination, and allows for real-time feedback and target practice.

Conditioning and Fitness

Our boxing/kickboxing program includes conditioning exercises to improve cardiovascular fitness, endurance, and overall physical strength. This may involve circuit training, plyometrics, agility drills, and core exercises.

Defensive Techniques

Students learn various defensive maneuvers such as parrying, blocking, evading, and countering strikes. These techniques focus on minimizing damage, maintaining a strong defense, and effectively responding to an opponent’s attacks.
