KO Kickboxing - K1 Style - London

Intro Level

The intro level is suitable for complete beginners or people with little experience of kickboxing. Students are taught basic striking techniques such as boxing, knees and kicks. This is carried out in shadow work, drill work with a partner (learning attacks and defence), as well as pad work and bag work however sparring is not involved at this level.

This will build up core strength, flexibility and anaerobic fitness. Kickboxing traditions and etiquette are also introduced to students. Intro classes are taught in a safe and friendly environment.

  • Warm up skipping or a round of cardio fitness, Stretching then the introduction to the art itself, the history and the technical side by showing the stance and the weapons.
