Lots of calls come into our dojo asking what the difference is between the kickboxing offered at their local gym and the kickboxing offered at our karate & kickboxing dojo.
In most cases, they are two different types of kickboxing with different goals in mind – aerobic or “cardio” kickboxing at the gym and sport or self-defense kickboxing at the dojo.  Both include kicking and punching which by nature give you a great cardio workout.  At most gyms, this is where the kickboxing routines focus.  The cardio classes at most gyms are just for that…. cardio.  A good workout without any other elements.  Where this typically differs at a martial arts studio and what makes it a “sports or self-defense version”  is that it involves learning strategies and proper form with these movements, plus a lot of footwork, body movement and blocking abilities.  
At the Boca Raton Karate & Kickboxing Academy, our Kickboxing gives you the best of both.  If your focus is exercise, you will definitely achieve your goal.  Plus you will learn proper form and how to move your body if you ever are faced with an opponent.  The self-defense aspect of karate and kickboxing is equally important.  Learn how to use these kickboxing elements properly and safely.  Hopefully you will never have to use them unless you choose to compete in a tournament, but it’s good to have these tools just in case…  And if you’re going to use them, proper form keeps you from getting injured.  You will also increase your flexibility, strength and endurance.
Either way, you should always try a class or two before committing to any style or location.  Find a school that allows you to experience the class so you get a feel of the instructor, the routine and the environment, making sure it’s right for you.

Know What You’re Paying for with Boca Raton Karate & Kickboxing Academy

When shopping for a martial arts studio, there are specific benefits and values you should know to look for.   One of these values is to know exactly what you are paying for with your monthly (or yearly) fee.

Like many businesses looking to attract new customers, there may be a great introductory promotional price for a limited time period – 1 month, 3 months, etc.  But regardless of price, exactly what are you getting for that fee?

Make sure you know how many classes you or your child will be allowed to take each week for that price.  Many martial arts studios charge a monthly fee or a contract fee for a specified number of months.  That fee includes training for a certain number of classes each week or month. If you do the math, you can easily figure out the cost per class.

For some, 2 classes per week are fine.  Others would prefer more.  The Boca Raton Karate & Kickboxing Academy offers 5 classes a week for both their youth and adult programs.  Students can come to all 5 if schedule allows! Plus the additional time training always helps students who are looking for a solid self-defense education and belt promotions.  With prices starting as low as $110 per month for this program (plus a 20% discount if 6 months are paid in full), the per-class cost is unmatched.

Do the math and make sure you find the right martial arts dojo with the best value for you and your children!

How to Live Life with INTEGRITY – A Tenet of the Martial Arts with Boca Raton Karate & Kickboxing Academy

The Martial Arts enhances many facets of life – physical fitness, mental well-being and it provides core values for kids as they learn and grow. Try 2 FREE WEEKS at the Boca Raton Karate & Kickboxing Academy. Call today for your complimentary intro class appointment. 561-926-1846 www.brkka.com

If you ask most kids what integrity means, they may have a vague idea, but they won’t be able to grasp the depth of its meaning.  And integrity, if nothing else, runs very, very deep.

The word integrity is derived from the Latin “integritas” which by definition means wholeness.   Integrity isn’t just doing one thing well or doing it right… it is a way of living that in whole, defines the person.  It is words, it is behavior, it is courage, it is sensitivity and empathy for others, it is motivation to take action, it is reliability and follow-through.

True integrity goes beyond the virtue of honesty – it is taking a 360 degree approach to beliefs and actions and being genuine to those actions and beliefs.

When we live with integrity, we know who we are and how we want the world to perceive us.  When we approach life consistently with integrity, we become more decisive and therefore, more effective.  Integrity conveys a genuineness in who you are, and it is easily recognized by others.  Trust, closeness and support will more easily follow.

So, how do we instill this important characteristic in our children and our students in the Martial Arts?  We live it and show it through example.  We encourage honesty and courage to make the right decision, even when the wrong choice is a more popular one.

Leading by example is key.  Avoid excuses and the “little white lies” that often give us an easy way out.   If you tell one, admit it and own it – then make things right.  Be sincere and true to your beliefs and always be yourself.  You and your children will be all the better because of it!
