What Is Kickboxing?
Have you ever been so mad you wanted to punch something? Like a pillow or couch cushion? This impromptu may feel satisfying at the moment, but there is an even better way to use physical activity to keep stress levels away… Kickboxing! Kickboxing is a form of martial art that is derived from karate.
The name may imply kicking as a priority, this martial art uses both hands and feet. Kicks and punches are both used in this sport, unlike other martial arts that use elbows and knees.
Kickboxing Is Just For Guys… Right? WRONG
