Kick Boxing

Although the true roots of kickboxing date back to Asia 2,000 years ago, modern competitive kickboxing actually started in the 1970s, when American karate experts arranged competitions that allowed full-contact kicks and punches that had been banned in karate.

Because of health and safety concerns, padding and protective clothing and safety rules were introduced into the sport over the years, which led to the various forms of competitive kickboxing practiced in the United States today. The forms differ in the techniques used and the amount of physical contact that is allowed between the competitors.

What's the point of taking up kickboxing training? Well, for one, losing weight seems to be a pretty common goal. I'm sure you know at least a handful of people who make shedding off those extra pounds a New Years resolution every single year. Most people end up quitting whatever their workout regimen is, usually involves a lot of running, within a few months. By doing something you will actually enjoy, you will greatly enhance the chance of you sticking with your workout routine long enough in order to make it turn into a habit. Once it becomes a habit, keeping it up with quite easy.

The reason kickboxing is such a great way to get and stay in shape is because it's fun. Now don't get me wrong, running is great too and many people enjoy it, but for lots of people, it can be quite boring. With kickboxing, not only are you getting a great workout, you are always learning to defend yourself at the same time. Also, because there are so many different variations to what you can do, it will keep your mind occupied and make it more enjoyable.
