Kick Boxing

boxing glovesHave you ever thought about trying kick boxing?  If the answer is yes, then this article is for you.  Let’s take a look at why this sport has grown exponentially in popularity in recent years.  Training for kick boxing is a little bit different than traditional boxing training; here are key benefits kickboxing offers which can’t be overlooked, some of them are:

  • You can train like a boxer would train without ever taking a punch
  • You have the opportunity to get a complete total body work out
  • You have the opportunity to improve your agility, speed, and cardio fitness

There are two basic categories of movements involved in kick boxing:  Kicks and Punches.  Let’s take a detailed look at the two:

Punches

The Jab – this traditional kick boxing punch is done by moving straight outward in a straight line.  This kick boxing punch is often used in combination with one of the other punches.

The Hook – this punch is rounded and has a arch formation when thrown

The Cross – this kick boxing punch is often combined with the jab; like its name suggests, this punch starts on one side of the body and with a cross ends up on the opposite side.

The Uppercut – starting at the middle of the body the kick boxing punch known as the uppercut moves directly up toward the chin area.

Kicks

The Front Kick – this kick boxing move is a basic one; this kick is delivered out front with the heel exposed.

The Side Kick – this move is the same as the front kick, only the leg moves out to the side (heel is still exposed).

The Roundhouse – if you’ve ever watched someone doing kick boxing, you’ve recognized this kick by the classic circular movement of the foot.  The kick is done properly when done with a turning motion of the body.

The 45 degree Roundhouse – this move is also done in a circular motion, only it is a not quite a full circle as would be seen in a traditional roundhouse kick.

The Hooking Knee Strike – this move is executed by doing a kick with a half circle; this kick is directed at the side of the target.

The Rising Knee Strike – this is a kick boxing move that can come from either foot; it should be aimed at the chest or face of your target.

Keep in mind the kick boxing moves laid out here are only to get you started.  Consider these basic moves to be the foundation of your training to become an expert at kick boxing.   Once you have mastered these moves, you will be prepared to move on to more complex kicking and punching movements.   Moves like the palm fist, back kick, sweep kick, and groin strike can be learned later.

Kick boxing is an excellent sport for those who are athletically inclined but don’t want to get in the ring and actually take a punch.  This is an excellent sport which can offer the body all the benefits of traditional boxing, minus the bruises.
