What is Kickboxing all about ?
Our Canterbury Kickboxing classes are designed to be enjoyed by all that want to work hard regardless of experience or fitness level, beginners and advanced welcome.
Kickboxing is one of the most popular combat sports and self-defence systems around the world. We offer kickboxing as practised for competition, fitness and recreational purposes.
As the name suggests, kickboxing is a striking style that incorporates punches, kicks, knees and in some cases elbows. It is an umbrella term for a wide range of combat and martial arts styles.
The Fusion gym has a fully kitted boxing gym with a large boxing ring, heavy & light speed bags, and a selection of weights and cardio equipment to make sure you have all that is needed to enjoy and learn the sport of Kickboxing and the conditioning involved…
Please note that any sparring is optional and only open to members when a suitable level of ability has been achieved and whilst wearing full protective equipment.
Canterbury Kickboxing is not all about punching and kicking, you will find new inner strength and love for the conditioning it brings.
Each class is different, you won’t be hitting the bag for the entire lesson, nor will you be left to your own device. Canterbury Kickboxing structures its classes in 4 simple stages:
- Warm-up & Stretch
- Skill Set 1 (Technical learning)
- Skill Set 2 (Partner Pad/Bag work)
- An endurance drill to finish
Technical learning, learn multi combinations, movement and defence whilst building up your confidence to move onto partner drills with pads and bags.
Equipment commonly used in our classes, at the beginning:
- 16oz Boxing Gloves
- Hand wraps
- Focus pads
- Skipping rope
Then once competency is raised:
- Head guard
- Gum shield
- Groin guard
- Shin pads
- Kick boots
- Trousers & Tshirt
If you’re looking to boost your core strength, and improve your cardiovascular and all over body condition, then this is the right class . Why not book a trial pack and see how they get on…
Frequently Asked Questions?
- What happens when I book a trial pack?
Once you have purchased a trial pack you will receive an email to download our members app, here you will see our live timetable where you can book onto session in your chosen trial. You will receive a confirmation email outlining the details of your booking, once booked.
We ask that you turn up to the class no earlier that 10min before your booking is due to start. Please wait in the car park until the previous classes have exited from the facility.
Please note that due to the nature of our classes we cannot allow late arrivals. Due to limited space, we ask you to come dressed ready to train.
- What will I need for the trial?
Simply arrive in loose-fitting clothes with no zips or buttons (joggers and t-shirt). Please bring a bottle of water and a sweat towel. That’s it, for the trial session we can lend you the gloves and pads needed.
- What happens after the trial?
After your trial, you are given the option to join one of our membership plans and become an active member with Fusion Martial Arts & Fitness. However, if Fusion is not for you then that’s it and we thank you for trialling with us.
- Will I need my own equipment after the trial?
Once you have completed your trial and decided you would like to join, then you will need to invest in your own personal equipment. For adults, you will need
- 16oz boxing gloves
- Focus Pads
- Skipping rope
All of this can be purchased on our Shop page. Please do not buy cheap Boxing gloves, they are protective equipment and should be of good quality. This is to keep you and your partners safe in training.
After a month of training, you will then need to buy your Sparring equipment. Don’t worry about that right now, a full list of equipment will be emailed to you once you become a member.
- How many times a week should I train?
We recommend twice a week as a minimum. This will allow you to keep up the skills sets and memory muscles needed to learn the syllabus and keep improving. In time you will need the skills for Grading and Sparring. Any less than twice a week greatly impacts development and motivation.
If you’re looking to compete then we would be looking for 3 to 4 sessions weekly. We offer additional classes for competitors, as and when competitions have been set.
