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.
