About Thai Kickboxing

Learn the most effective striking techniques for self-defense and sport with Coach Greg Bartman! This exciting program combines valid street-defense techniques with an incredible workout. The training regimen is a practical hybrid of the best striking arts, including Muay Thai, Western Boxing, Bando, Tae Kwon Do, Jeet Koon Do, and Karate. We safely cover the details of stances, movement, defenses, punches, elbow and knee strikes, kicks, and practical combinations. We incorporate all of the best proven striking methods. Sport aspects are also covered.

This class will increase your strength, balance, coordination, stamina, overall fitness, and confidence. Classes consist of warm-ups, technical instruction, movement exercises, shadowboxing, striking target shields & focus mitts, punches and kicks on the heavy bags, partner drills, sparring for experienced students, and cool-down stretching. The class does not require unusual flexibility or a high level of fitness to begin.

All training is conducted in a safe environment designed to maximize the experience for all levels of students while greatly reducing any chance of injury.

No experience necessary. Both genders. Ages teen to adult. Equipment and gloves available for purchase.
