We teach sport based Kickboxing with a self defence element. Ideal for those who want to have a good workout, keep fit and learn some useful skills.

We teach all ages and genders from 7 years upwards but we are not a fight club!

What is Kickboxing?

Kickboxing is a hybrid derived from Boxing and Martial Arts kicking.

In a typical Kickboxing class at Empire Martial Arts, participants will learn to use both the upper and lower body to punch, use kicking techniques, blocking, and combinations with punch bags, kick bags and free standing bags, known as BOBS, combined with partner work.

When performed as a fitness and weight loss program, Kickboxing can provide a full-body workout that can improve fitness, co-ordination, muscle toning, self confidence and weight loss.

In addition, regularly performing a Kickboxing exercise routine works all major muscle groups in a fun and energetic way and improves balance, coordination, flexibility and self-confidence.

Please get in touch to find out more about our Kickboxing classes. We also can cater for one-2-one sessions or if you can’t make one of our regular classes we may be able to run a one off class at a different time if enough people are able to join in.

Why don’t we do a Ladies Kickboxing class?

We don’t run a ladies only class but if this is something you would be interested in creating a small group class with some of your friends with then please get in touch with us.
